In Mark Schlabach's most recent way too eary top 25 (post signing day edition) he has this to say about Ohio State's incoming recruiting class:

Urban Meyer wanted to transform Ohio State's football team with SEC-like speed, and he dipped into Florida, Georgia and Texas in his most recent recruiting class to try to do it.

This would lead a reader to believe that Urban wanted to recruit fast players and subsequently recruited players from the South and Texas. It obviously ignores the fact that with the exception of Dixon, the speed in this class is coming from Northern states including New Jersey, Indiana, and Ohio. Our Georgia and Texas players? Linebacker, lineman, and QB... I don't hate on ESPN as much as a lot of other folks on here but this is either poor knowledge on his part or obvious attempt to force a narrative. Perhaps both, but it is certainly in line with all his other work. Here's the link for those interested
