First Ohio State newcomer loses black stripe
The first Ohio State newcomer has lost his black stripe.
Wednesday afternoon, Ohio State announced that transfer running back Trey Sermon has lost his black stripe, the first newcomer to the program to do so before the 2020 season. It’s a tradition that dates back to the Urban Meyer days, and officially makes Sermon a Buckeye.
Ohio State posted the video on Twitter. Sermon transferred to Ohio State from Oklahoma:

Sermon is expected to be a quick impact player for the Buckeyes in 2020. He’ll have huge shoes to fill with J.K. Dobbins departed, but his experience in Oklahoma’s offense should be an asset for Ohio State.
Sermon comes to Ohio State after spending the last three seasons at Oklahoma. During his time with the Sooners, he rushed for 2,076 yards and 22 touchdowns while adding 391 yards and 3 touchdowns as a receiver.
Now, he’s officially a Buckeye.
