The sudden resignation of Florida coach Urban Meyer on Wednesday afternoon has certainly impacted the Gators' 2011 recruiting class. One of the beneficiaries could be the Ohio State Buckeyes.

OSU coach Jim Tressel has a commitment from Jeremy Cash (Plantation, Fla./Plantation), and now has a shot at Cash's teammate, Under Armour All-American linebacker Ryan Shazier who committed to the Gators in June.

Ohio State assistant coach Paul Haynes stopped at Plantation on Wednesday to check on Cash. Before he was done, Haynes had scheduled Shazier for an official visit.
