Another freshman has lost his stripe.
Freshman offensive lineman Jakob James made his rite of passage on Monday afternoon, losing his black stripe to become an "official" member of the Ohio State football team.
James is the 15th overall freshman and the third offensive lineman in the 2020 class to shed his black stripe. He was one of two freshmen to have his black stripe removed Monday, along with cornerback Ryan Watts.
"I just want to thank my family and friends back home, coach Mick and his staff, coach Stud, coach Tuck and the whole O-line unit," James said. "Go Bucks!"
James, a three-star prospect out of Cincinnati, was the No. 55 offensive guard and No. 852 overall player in the nation.
