It was the middle of the Rose Bowl, but that didn't stop Ohio State from landing a future Buckeye.

Midway through the second quarter of the Rose Bowl, Ohio State added another member to its 2023 recruiting class as four-star safety Cedrick Hawkins announced his commitment to Ohio State.

  • Size: 5-11/165
  • Pos: S
  • School: Cocoa (Titusville, FL)

  • Composite Rank: 226 (20 S)

The four-star safety from Titusville, Florida is rated as the No. 20 safety and No. 226 overall player in the 2023 recruiting class.

Hawkins earned a scholarship offer from the Buckeyes over the summer after attending an Ohio State camp. With his commitment, he chooses the Buckeyes over Arizona State, Florida, Florida State and others.

With the addition of Hawkins, Ohio State now has three commitments in the 2023 class as he joins four-star tight end Ty Lockwood and four-star offensive lineman Joshua Padilla.
