Jyaire Brown committed to Ohio State back in April 2020. More than two years later, he can “officially” call himself a Buckeye.
Brown became the fifth player of 2022 to lose his black stripe, joining safeties Tanner McCalister and Kye Stokes, defensive end Caden Curry and linebacker Chip Trayanum. Trayanum also lost his black stripe Tuesday.
The New Orleans native was the first player to commit to the Buckeyes in the 2022 class and signed with Ohio State as the No. 24 cornerback prospect and the No. 192 player overall. He is one of four defensive backs in the freshman class, along with Ryan Turner, Sonny Styles and Stokes.
Denzel Burke and Cameron Brown will lead the Ohio State cornerbacks as the presumptive starters, but behind them is a lot of inexperience with Jordan Hancock, JK Johnson, Turner and Jyaire Brown, among others. While Jyaire Brown might not usurp Burke and Cameron Brown and become a top-two cornerback, he has a chance to work his way up the depth chart this fall and the rest of the season.
