On Wednesday, Defensive Lineman Logan Cash signed his Letter of Intent with the Clemson Tigers. Cash chose Clemson over 39 other verbal offers, and is currently rated by 24/7 Sports’ Composite as the 564th rated player in the country. This rating is way too low in my eyes, and Clemson is getting a much better player than his ranking would indicate.
Cash led all of Georgia in sacks during his Junior season, and considering the amount of talent in the state that is incredibly impressive. There was some thought that eventually Cash would receive an offer from UGA and commit to the Dawgs, however, concerns about Cash’s arm length in a 3-4 scheme kept that offer from coming. It is because of these length concerns that I believe Cash best projects as an interior DL.
Based on both his production and what he has put on tape, I would be surprised to see Cash not rise in the rankings. He is physical, explosive, has violent hands, and more-so than anything is very strong. Because of these traits, some even believe Cash could project as a Guard or Center on the other side of the ball. No matter what position he winds up at, Clemson is getting a very good player that will fit seamlessly into Clemson’s Football program.
Clips of Cash’s Senior film can be found here.
Many have Cash already pegged as a future offensive lineman, but he will get his shot to play on the defensive line. You don’t get 23.5 sacks without some serious talent. Cash has a relentless motor and lower body strength. He doesn’t have the speed you want at defensive end with so many zone read concepts, but that isn’t a problem if he can transition to the 3-tech. That will likely be the question for Cash since he is a bit of a tweener right now.
If he can’t keep that athleticism then he will head over to play guard or center. But right now I like his potential as an interior pass rusher.
