Jonah Jackson has been Ohio State's first-team left guard since spring practice opened, but now he's "officially" a Buckeye.
The Rutgers transfer becomes the first player to shed his black stripe this fall, losing it after just four practices.
In February, Jackson announced his intent to join Ohio State as a graduate transfer after spending his redshirt junior season as both a starter and a captain for the Scarlet Knights.
"I just wanna say thank you to every single person here in this circle, man, for welcoming me into this program with open arms and allowing me to be a part of such a great program and brotherhood," Jackson said after having his stripe removed. "Let's keep this ball rolling and go Bucks."
Jackson has been seen as a likely starter since before he even arrived on campus and will bring experienced to a young Buckeye offensive line.
