“First and foremost, I want to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for blessing me with health, favor and opportunity. To my family, thank you for laying the foundation on which I stand. Through all of the uncertanties, one thing was always certain, our love for one another.”
Stroud was a five-star prospect and the No. 29 overall recruit in the Class of 2020. The Rancho Cucamonga, California, native had 8,123 yards passing and 85 touchdowns during his three-year career with the Buckeyes.
