The Montclair, NJ native appeared in seven games in 2015 but missed last season with a lower leg injury that he sustained in fall camp. He was entering his junior year of eligibility with the Buckeyes.
Slade is a former three-star recruit and had 12 offers – five from the B1G – before signing with Ohio State.
