Ohio State hired Urban Meyer for his teams' on the field success. In his previous three head coaching gigs Meyer won two national titles, two SEC titles, two Mountain West titles and over 80 percent of his games.
However, Buckeye fans as well as college football fans around the nation knew that Meyer's greatest exploits as a coach may be his abilities off the field. During his time at Florida Meyer earned the distinction as one of the best recruiters in college football, for example Meyer landed commitments from Tim Tebow and Cameron Newton in back-to-back seasons, while it took former Ohio State coach Jim Tressel three years to get another high-profile QB to come in behind Terrelle Pryor.
After he finished the 2012 recruiting class with a flurry of recruits right after his hiring in late November the new Buckeye head coach set out to bring in more talent in the 2013 class. The biggest thing Meyer has mentioned since taking over as Ohio State's head coach is the team just doesn't have the play-makers he is used to having and he has clearly made it a priority to rectify that situation.
I am not a talent scout and I am not arguing rankings, this ranking is based solely on which highlight reels are more eye-opening.
