Former Ohio State Commit Bruce Judson: I Decommitted Because Urban Meyer Didn't Remember Who I Was

Bruce Judson sheds some potential light as to why he decommitted from Ohio State.

Bruce Judson committed to Ohio State very early in the recruiting process as a member of the 2017 class. He pledged to the Buckeyes minutes after they won the College Football Playoff National Championship.

A little more than 10 months later, Judson reopened his recruitment, citing a lack of communication with Meyer and Ohio State as the reason.

Thursday, Judson might have shed some more light on to why he elected to decommit from Meyer's program.

The 4-star athlete from Cocoa High School in Cocoa, Florida (the same high school of former Buckeye and current Auburn Tiger Jamel Dean), told of an conversation between himself and Meyer during Friday Night Lights last summer where the Ohio State head coach failed to recognize him.


"Long story short, I was walking in the hallway about to go to the indoor field and work out. He was like, ‘Hey.’ I looked around. ‘Come here.’ He was like, ‘How you doing, you like your visit?’ I said, ‘Yeah.’ Then he’s like, ‘What up Richard LeCounte? Are you showing this guy (Judson) around?’ I was like, ‘Coach, I’m showing him around.’ He asked me, ‘Who are you?’ I told him Bruce. He said, ‘Oh, Bruce Judson from Florida. The speedy guy.’ I was like, ‘Yeah.’ He said, ‘I’m glad that you’re on board and glad you got up here.’ After that, I knew I was de-committing."

Judson added he felt Meyer should know what he looked like since they met at a satellite camp before.

Birm will have more on this in tonight's Hurry Up.
