You thought is was impressive when Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer led the team to another undefeated season, but the best thing coach Meyer does, is recruiting. Meyer is one of the best all-time college recruiters and Buckeye fans should be glad he is on their side.
Meyer picked up two amazing picks this week when he got linebacker Raekwon McMillan and wide receiver Johnnie Dixon to commit to the Ohio State Buckeyes.
Meyer went out and he brought two of the very best players at their positions to the Ohio State Buckeyes. You would have to think his undefeated record in the regular season over the past two seasons is making it easy for him to go out and find the talent to keep the Buckeyes winning.
But, Meyer has had a long history of being able to get players to commit. He is really one of the best of all time and some think the only other guy who can recruit as well, is Nick Saban.
So far this off-season, I think Meyer has blown away Saban with recruiting. You don't go out and bring two top players in the nation to Columbus and go unnoticed.
Other coaches have complained about Urban Meyer's recruiting habits in the past. It is jealousy at its finest.
When you coach winning and your guys play hard for you, it makes the job of recruiting easier. Meyer doesn't like to lose on the football field or win it comes to recruiting. It shows and I can't wait to see who he brings in next.
