COLUMBUS, Ohio - On Tuesday afternoon the news of freshman defensive tackle Tommy Schutt having his black stripe removed from his helmet came out of Buckeyes' practice. The 6-foot-2, 305-pounder out of Glen Ellyn (Ill.) was not initially committed to Ohio State but after changing his pledge to the Buckeyes, he has fit in and now has proven to excel on the big stage.

Defensive line recruiting has already been a mark under new head coach Urban Meyer and Schutt was one of several true freshman singled out by Meyer during Sunday's media day at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. The Buckeyes are already blessed with a veteran-laden line going into the 2012 season but the young guys are pushing hard and making their way into the two-deep.

On Tuesday the good news came down for Schutt when his mentor, Garrett Goebel, was asked to take the stripe off of the freshman's helmet.

There was no media access to Tuesday's practice but we did catch up with Schutt over the weekend and asked him about the transition to college as well as what it would mean when he got his 'rookie stripe' removed. Check it out in this free video update.
