It’s that time of year again when we get to see the right of passage at Ohio State better known as black stripe removals. Young guys might have signed on the dotted line and made their way to the banks of the Olentangy as Ohio State football players, but they aren’t truly welcomed into the brotherhood “officially” until they have their black-stripe removed.
Tuesday saw two players shed their black stripes at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. DeaMonte Trayanum went through the short ceremony, and so too did defensive back Jyaire Brown.
Brown came to OSU as a 4-star, top 200 prospect in the 2022 class that was an early enrollee and has now become one of the first in fall camp to receive the honor. He could barely hold back the excitement.
“Shout out B.I.A (Best in America) man,” Brown said. “Shout out all y’all Buckeye Nation. Shout out, coach Mick. Shout out all y’all. Go Bucks!”
Check out the short festivities below.
