Nick Cross, a four-star safety who plays for DeMatha Catholic in Maryland, announced on Saturday morning that he'll be visiting Ohio State this coming week. It's an unofficial visit.

Cross, a class of 2019 player, is a four-star recruit who stands at 6-foot-1, 207 pounds, according to 247 Sports. He's ranked as the third-best player in Maryland and the 10th-best safety in the country.

To say Cross is drawing interest would be an understatement. He already has 32 offers - many of which come from top schools. Cross announced on Twitter that he'll be visiting Columbus on Monday - posting a few edits of himself wearing Buckeyes gear in the process.

Notre Dame, Ohio State and Penn State seem to be in the lead for his services. But he, also has offers from Alabama, Auburn, Boston College, Duke, FIU, Florida, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Kentucky, LSU, Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State, Mississippi State, Nebraska, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Rutgers, Stanford, Syracuse, Temple, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest.

Larry Johnson is apparently the lead recruiter on Cross.

It's early, but Ohio State already has three recruits for its 2019 class. The Buckeyes currently have the 21st-best class in the country, but we imagine that won't last long.
