Is Cash in the bank?

The Buckeye recruiting class is now up to nine members after Plantation (Fla.) defensive back Jeremy Cash made it official by giving his verbal commitment to Jim Tressel and the Buckeyes. The 6-foot-2, 185-pounder had long been rumored to be favoring the Buckeyes over the likes of Miami (Fla.) and others and now BuckeyeGrove.com has confirmed that it is official.

Cash will now enter Ohio Stadium this weekend for the Ohio State spring game as a committed prospect and will arrive to a hero's welcome by the throngs of Buckeye faithful. This weekend will promise to be a big weekend for the Buckeyes with several top out-of-state kids in attendance including other Floridians like Jabari Gorman and Wayne Lyons.

The newest Buckeye projects to play safety when he arrives at Ohio State after the 2010 season. Cash has been timed with at 4.52 seconds (laser) in the 40-yard-dash and has self described closing speed when it comes to getting into the action.

As a junior Cash had 96 tackles, 23 for loss, seven sacks, two picks, five forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. The Buckeyes are hopeful that Jeremy will be able to continue that nose for good things to continue when Cash turns the page toward his college career.

Cash is the second commit in the defensive backfield for the Buckeyes joining cornerback DerJuan Gambrell from within the state of Ohio. The Buckeyes will be looking to take somewhere between 20 and 22 players in the class of 2011.

We will have more from Cash on his decision to join the Buckeyes and what went into the pick and the timing of the pick later this afternoon.
