Dwayne Haskins and Rodjay Burns had different paths to Ohio State. Haskins was a highly touted, four-star prospect from Potomac, Maryland with nearly 40 scholarship offers; Burns was a three-star recruit who didn't earn an offer from the Buckeyes until late.
On Wednesday, both officially became members of the Ohio State football team.
Check out the video posted above, via the Twitter account from head coach Urban Meyer, to see Burns and Haskins each lose their black stripe. Burns' big brother is redshirt sophomore cornerback Marshon Lattimore; Haskins' big brother is redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett.
Burns and Haskins join Austin Mack, Michael Jordan, Tuf Borland and Jonathon Cooper as members of Ohio State's 2016 recruiting class who have shed their black stripes thus far.
