Year in and year out, Meyer's teams at Florida were packed with talent. Tim Tebow, Joe Haden, Carlos Dunlap, Percy Harvin, Chris Rainey, Aaron Hernandez and Brandon Spikes are just the first few great players he recruited that come to mind. The point is, this guy can recruit and his connections are limitless.
As I said before, Meyer is an Ohio native and knows the state extremely well, so he should be able to put a recruiting fence around the home state the way Tressel did. Ohio is one of the best states in the nation when it comes to high school football and producing stud recruits. Another state in the same class as Ohio in terms of high school talent is Florida, and Meyer knows this state just as well.
During Tressel's tenure, he was able to pick up a few recruits from the Sunshine State, but can you imagine how amazing a recruiting class Meyer could compile as the head coach of Ohio State? He could easily use his connections in the state of Florida to attract a ton of recruits to play in Columbus. The combination of the top talent from the states of Ohio and Florida in one recruiting class is a scary thought. Unless you're an Ohio State fan, of course.
