Another Ohio State football player earned the removal of his black stripe.
This time, it’s freshman defensive tackle Malik Barrow.
Barrow, who’s from Tampa, Fla., is listed at 6-foot-2 and 288 pounds. He was a 4-star recruit out of IMG Academy, ranked the 30th best player in Florida by 247 Sports.

Barrow enrolled at Ohio State in January, but a knee injury kept him focused on rehab.
Barrow’s accomplishment comes only a few days before Ohio State plays at Oklahoma at 7:30 p.m. Saturday on Fox.
