Urban Meyer was at a high school football camp in Michigan last Wednesday. Meyer gave a short speech to the campers and said that if Ohio State doesn’t already have talent from the state of Michigan, they will in the future. There are currently only 2 listed players on the 2012 roster from the state of Michigan.
Meyer was not there alone as Michigan’s Brady Hoke, Eastern Michigan’s Ron English, Alabama-Birmingham coach Garrick McGee, and Michigan State defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi were also there.
I’m not sure why this is a big deal considering it’s Urban Meyer and Ohio State and he should be able to recruit anywhere in the country without a problem, even in Michigan’s backyard.
