While Ohio State football waits on linebacker Curtis Grant and his college football decision, there are five players from Ohio State’s recruiting class that are getting an early start on their college life, including one big name from the 2011 recruiting class – Braxton Miller.
These five players graduated high school early and enrolled for the winter quarter at Ohio State:
Braxton Miller, QB, 6-3, 203 Huber Hts. (Wayne), Ohio.
He was the No.1 prospect in Ohio according to Ohio Football Recruiting news, and the No.1 dual-threat QB in the nation according to rivals.com, the 34th best overall prospect.
Jeremy Cash, DB, 6-2, 190, Plantation, Fla.
Ranked the No. 25 safety nationally by Rivals.com, and No. 30 by Scout.com. Both services rank him as a three-star prospect.
