Two More Buckeyes Lose Black Stripes

Max Wray Ohio State Offensive Tackle Buckeyes

Two more Buckeyes lost black stripes following Monday’s Ohio State football practice. The removal of the black stripe from their helmet signifies that they are now full-fledged Buckeyes.

The first honoree was redshirt freshman offensive tackle Max Wray, who spent much of last season injured and did not see action in any games.

Wray actually enrolled early a year ago in order to get a jump start on his Buckeye career.

A high school All-American, Wray was the No. 9 offensive tackle in the 2018 recruiting class.

Wray has been repping with the twos at left and right tackle this spring and been playing well.

The other Buckeye to lose his stripe on Monday was walk-on defensive back Ryan Batsch.

Batsch joined the team last year. He was a second-team All-State performer at Loveland High School in the Cincinnati area.

You can see both players lose their stripes below.

  1. What about Jake Wray? Is OSU still on his radar? He doesn’t seem to get mentioned on this site like Cavazos does.

    1. Neither is on each other’s radar. He’ll stay down south.

      1. You may be right and he decides on Georgia or Alabama, but, even though he decommitted from the Buckeyes, the Buckeyes are still interested. The ball is in his court.
