Black stripe season is well underway in Columbus.
Wide receiver Gee Scott Jr. became the latest Ohio State freshman to have his black stripe removed.
He's the third freshman and second wideout in his recruiting class to shed his black stripe. Jaxon Smith-Njigba and Kourt Williams were the first two to lose theirs earlier this week.
"Man, I appreciate y'all welcoming me in right away and making me one of your own, man," Scott said to his teammates. "I'm just blessed to be a part of this. Shoutout to Zone 6, coach Hartline. Appreciate y'all, man. Buckeye."
Scott, though just a freshman, will be in the mix for a spot in Brian Hartline's wide receiver rotation this fall. Out of Washington, he was the No. 66 overall prospect and 10th-ranked wideout in the 2020 cycle.
