Could Eric Glover-Williams' Offer be in Jeopardy?

Eric Glover-Williams at work during last summer's Friday Night Lights, where he wowed OSU coaches and earned his offer.

Welp, this isn't the news Ohio State fans are looking for to start the off-season recruiting cycle. According to Todd Porter at, the 2015 four-star athlete and cornerstone of Ohio State's 2015 class could lose his scholarship offer due to the ominously obscure "off-the-field issues."

Coaches aren't allowed to publicly comment on recruits, but here's Urban on coaching in 2014 as opposed to 1994:

"When I first started 20 years ago, you didn't know much," Meyer said. "You know everything now. I have people where it's their full-time jobs ... that's what they do. They monitor Facebook and Twitter and tweets and all that stuff. We have to find out — I want to know because we're held responsible for all those guys.

"This is an era, a generation that ... 18, 19, 20-year-olds, we know everything that's going on every day because of what goes on these cellphones. Think about that for a minute, 18, 19,20-year-olds. So it's a big part of what we do. Huge."

Meyer knew the question was coming from a reporter in Canton. He had a slight smirk on his face when it was being asked.

Hopefully this pans out for the young Eric Glover-Williams, but this should be a lesson to all potential recruits.
