Tyleik Williams has joined the party.
Since arriving in Columbus in January as one of Ohio State's 14 early enrollees, freshman defensive tackle Tyleik Williams has shed 40 pounds.
His hard work had not gone unnoticed by the OSU coaching staff, leading to the removal of Williams' black stripe on Tuesday along with USC transfer linebacker Palaie Gaotoete and fellow freshman Andre Turrentine, officially making Williams the newest member of the Rushmen.
"I just want to thank y'all for welcoming me into the brotherhood," Williams said. "The O-linemen for making me better every day, the Rushmen for bringing me up, motivating me, coach (Johnson) for believing in me. Go Bucks."
Williams made his Ohio State debut against Oregon on Saturday, recording one tackle in three snaps.
