Yep, you can use it. Not as hard as hard maple but it is harder than walnut. It will work fine, might show knife marks a little sooner than some other woods.
My favorite cutting board is a 2” thick single plank board that my grandfather made for my mom out of soft maple. It has a slight dish in the middle from over 50 years of use.
