Meyer Responds to 2-Year-Old ‘Recruit’ - Lost Lettermen

Meyer Responds to 2-Year-Old ‘Recruit’

September 16th, 2013| by

One of Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer’s tricks of the trade is that he starts paying attention to potential recruits when they’re young. Really young.

Recently, Meyer received a flyer in the mail outlining the “athletic accomplishments” of two-year-old Columbus resident Sullivan Busser, a 3-foot-2, 25-pound quarterback in the Class of 2029. Included on the flyer are several photos of Busser running wild at Ohio Stadium with a mini football.

Meyer responded with a letter that read:

Dear Sullivan:

Your parents sent us your future Buckeye recruiting information.  We will look for you to make your collegiate football debut in 2029 — you will need to gain a little weight, but our strength staff will take care of that!  Go Bucks!


Urban Meyer

Head Football Coach

Pretty adorable. Also, we want to know how Busser got Ohio Stadium all to himself in the photos below.
