Another member of Ohio State's freshman class has "officially" become a Buckeye.
Cade Stover became the third freshman in three days and the seventh overall member of Ohio State's freshman class of 2019 to shed his black stripe on Tuesday, following his 10th practice as a Buckeye.
A four-star recruit from Lexington, Ohio, Stover is competing for playing time at the Sam linebacker position. The state of Ohio's reigning Mr. Football faces steep competition to earn a spot in the linebacker rotation as a true freshman, but is expected to at least see playing time on special teams for the Buckeyes this year.
Stover becomes the third freshman who did not enroll early to lose his black stripe, following center Harry Miller and wide receiver Jameson Williams, who shed theirs last week.
