Not sure, but apparently difficult to please.

Eye-opening piece in many ways, not only about Wint himself - a great story - but also about Matt Rhule (as noted by TheBadOwl), and confirmation about something other fan bases don't get about Urban: when a player "flips" OSU's way, it's almost never just because Urban waltzes in at the last minute and sleeps over at a #teen's house offers, it's because there is some history and investment of time and effort to develop a relationship early on. In the case of Haskins yesterday, it dated back to the relationship Tim Beck cultivated. Wint may or may not have developed into a Power Five prospect, but Urban obviously saw something back when he was scouting Samuel. He and others on our coaching staff seemingly find guys before they "blow up", and we either reap the benefits with commitments or are at least in the running for guys we otherwise would have no chance of landing. Most successful college coaches do this to some extent, but Urban and his staff seem the best at it.
