I remember the first thing Urban Meyer did when he came to Florida, he declared war with the state’s other two powerhouses when it came to recruiting. Guys like the Pouncey twins who would have originally jumped at a chance to go to FSU or Miami were all being swayed to Gainesville. He was just a tireless and masterful recruiter.
Now message board rumors suggest a lot of his methods are shady, and I guess if you believe them, they are…but they aren’t illegal under NCAA standards, and that is all that matters. I think the most famous instance was the Sharrif Floyd/God rumor that has floated for a couple years.
Anyways, Urban has been head coach for 2 weeks. In that time he’s convinced an Illinois recruit, Tommy Schutt and a Michigan State recruit Se’von Pittman that they’d be wasting their college lives playing at a school other than Ohio State.
Just wait until he stocks up on a limitless number of positional speed guys with average hands! Track meet! Ole!
