Freshman defensive end Omari Abor is officially a member of The Brotherhood.
This week, the former four-star prospect shed his black stripe, which means he is now a fully-recognized member of the Ohio State football program.
Abor arrived on campus in June along with several other recruits in the class of 2022 as the No. 6 defensive end and No. 63 overall recruit in the class, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. Additionally, as a senior, he was a finalist for the Maxwell Football Club Defensive High School National Player of the Year.
The Duncanville, Texas, native played in only one game for Ohio State this season, entering the Buckeyes' matchup with Arkansas State as a late-game substitution. After that point, Abor suffered a knee injury that kept him off the field for the rest of the year.
Despite the setback, the coaching staff and his teammates have liked what they've seen from the talented freshman and hope to see his recovery process trending in the right direction ahead of 2023. He will be eligible for a redshirt because of his appearance in only one contest.
