Cash to transfer out of Ohio State

Follow Noon on Twitter | Rowland | Givler

Attrition is always something that happens when a new coaching staff takes control of a program. BuckeyeGrove.com learned on Friday evening that sophomore-to-be Jeremy Cash intends to transfer out of Ohio State. It was been confirmed by a university official on Friday night.

The 6-foot-2, 190 pound defensive back came to Ohio State out of Plantation (Fla.) and played sparingly during the 2011 season. He was rated as a four-star by Rivals.com and enrolled early with the Buckeyes. Cash had a chance to adjust through spring practice before his freshman season. He recorded three tackles (two solo) in five games, mostly on special teams duty.

Cash committed to the Buckeyes in April 2010, but took an official visit to Arizona State after committing before eventually firming up his commitment to Ohio State.

Now Cash will be looking for a new home. It is unknown where he will end up, but several schools will be looking to pull in the defensive back. If he transfers to another Division I (FBS) school, he will have to sit out a year per transfer rules unless he is able to get a NCAA waiver approved.

Upon committing to Ohio State, Cash admitted that there were certain things that drew him to the program. But a lot has happened since then.

"Myself, my parents and my mentor really shut down the recruiting process and sat down and talked about what would be best for me," Cash said in a April interview with BuckeyeGrove after committing. "Ohio State has it all with the coaching stability, winning aspect and being able to put me in a position where I can better myself after football."

The Buckeyes had a 6-7 season last year with former coach Jim Tressel is out of the college ranks. It is unknown if either of those factors weighed heavily in his decision to leave the program.

The departure of Cash gets the Buckeyes down to 81 scholarship players (out of 82 based upon NCAA sanctions) if all 19 of Ohio State's current commits eventually sign with Ohio State. It is believed that more attrition could happen and open up through the spring before Ohio State's freshman (outside of the ones who are currently enrolled) go on scholarship.
