Urban Meyer's Heartwarming Response to 2-Year-Old Recruit

By DJ Byrnes on September 17, 2013 at 12:16p

The effort for the 2029 recruiting class got off to a roaring start yesterday. Sullivan Busser's parents had sent the above photo to Urban Meyer, documenting their son's prodigious football talents. Meyer, whose keen recruiting ability has led to two national titles, responded in kind:

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

Rumors are swirling on recruiting boards that Lane Kiffin is already preparing an official offer for the tyke.

The pictures are great and all, but in this day and age you need a highlight film.  I want to see actual PT!
Cute stuff! 
*mentally schemes as to how to utilize four cute daughters to ellicit communication from Urban*

I can't believe coaches are extending offers to 8th grade players - it just seems crazy. 

Yeti's have feelings too.

Sleazy Urban Meyer with another recruiting violation!

Yeah I'm pretty sure he's not allowed to talk to a recruit that is that young.
We should probably self report this before the NCAA comes down hard on Urban.
By the time this kid is playing I'm sure they will suspend him for at least the first minute of the game.

And when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of boooooooooze!! And we'll drink to old Ohio 'till we wobble in our shoes.

I heard the NCAA has already suspended the kid, he must take an extra 3 hour nap everyday for the next 4 years. them bastards..

"Urban Meyer forces kid to gain weight to make team. Did this go on at Florida as well?"

Hopefully his old man is 6'4 and 250.

Nothing like dancing on the field in 02...

Those photos were taken at Friday Night Lights.  Sullivan exposed Damon Webb!

Devin Gardner was trying to play catch with his son but this little guy kept picking him off...

He ain't even stretch doe!!

Looking at the tight spiral the kid throws, it's possible he could be Gardner's position coach by the end of the year.

Kind of funny to see a 2 year old recruit and Urban's response to him right on the heels of hearing about a 2 year old recording of a Bo Pelini curse-filled rant getting him in more hot water in Lincoln.

Bo may be coaching this kid's peewee team soon, if he can clean up his language.

Have you tried Not Your Father's Root Beer?  It tastes just like the real thing, but it packs a punch (5.9%ABV).  It's a little sweet for me though.  Two is my limit.

So you're saying "F--- you, parents. F--- all of you.", wouldn't be acceptable in PeeWee football?

When I played PeeWee it was de rigueur, but times have changed.

Thought the exact same thing; neither would Bo.  It is a different era.

This proves it! It's UFM's fault!  And I'm glad.

Chalk another one up for Urban on the PR front!

Kids only 2 and he's already smart enough to know to stay away from scUM. Wouldn't get any milk and cookies with Jabba the Hoke around.

That Urban is an absolute beast on the recruiting trail. Lock that kido up!

Lane Kiffin not only offered the kid but he's trying to convince the kid to graduate from preschool early so he can enroll in USC this January.  "Based on our poor QB play this season you could start next fall."  He has lined up a hostess (she's a baby pageant winner) and Snoopy (Dog) to pick him up from the airport.

This is adorable and I feel no shame in smiling uncontrollably like an idiot.

Don't give up... Don't ever give up.

At the end of every day, Coach Coombs asks him, did you beat Alabama's two-year old recruit today?
