Video: Nick Bosa, Malik Harrison lose black stripes
Well, at least Nick Bosa has a team.
With his brother, Joey, still mired in a contract dispute with the San Diego Chargers, Nick Bosa was one of two Buckeyes to lose their black stripes Thursday, joining Malik Harrison.

Bosa, a 5-star defensive end from Florida powerhouse St. Thomas Aquinas, is expected to see time this season as a true freshman. Defensive coordinator Luke Fickell has said that the younger Bosa is stronger than his older brother – which is quite a feat.
“He’s different than his brother,” Fickell told reporters a few weeks ago. “That’s not good or bad. Maybe he is an inch shorter than his brother, but he’s also stronger than his brother. There is a lot of give and take there.”
Harrison was a 3-star recruit out of Walnut Ridge in Columbus, Ohio.
