BREVARD COUNTY β€’ COCOA, FLORIDA – Cocoa Tiger 4-star defensive back Cedrick Hawkins committed to Ohio State University on New Years Day.

The class of 2023 athlete had more than 15 offers with other big-name programs in the mix such as Florida State, the University of Florida, Georgia Tech and Penn State, to name a few.

Hawkins is the No. 197 prospect in the On3 Consensus.

β€œI went up to Ohio State in the summer and loved everything,” Hawkins told On3. β€œOver the last two to three weeks, I have been thinking about this.

β€œI gave coach (Tony) Alford a call a couple of days ago and told him about my decision. Ohio State is where I want to go.”

On3.com said schools will not stop recruiting Hawkins, the No. 38 prospect in Florida, but Hawkings said he feels good about this decision.

Hawkins, a 5-foot, 11-inch, 170-pound safety, is related to former Cocoa Tiger and Louisville Cardinal, and current Los Angeles Rams running back Javian Hawkins.

The Cocoa Tigers finished the 2021 season 11-2 and came up just short of another state championship title.
