Ahead of the upcoming Friday Night Lights event at OSU, Cincinnati Winton Woods four-star defensive lineman Jerron Cage pledged to the Buckeyes, giving OSU eight commitments in the class -- all of whom are Scout 300 prospects.
It's a key position of need for the Buckeyes and Cage will add beef to the interior line at 6-3, 280 pounds. He picked up his offer in June and picked the Buckeyes ahead of other offers from Cincinnati, Kentucky and Louisville.
Cage is rated the No. 11 defensive tackle in the class and the best in the Midwest. He is No. 155 overall in the Scout.com rankings for 2017.
Cage is expected to be at FNL over the weekend.
