Best recruiter: Mike Vrabel



From Brandon Castel's "Two-Minute Drill: Updates from Coach Meyer’s Spring Kick-Off"

April 4, 2012

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer headlined the school’s spring kick-off event Tuesday, which also doubled as a fund raiser benefiting the Earle & Jean Bruce Alzheimer’s Research Fund.

Meyer was introduced by his mentor, Earle Bruce, and provided the crowd of nearly 1,000 people at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center with a brief look into the first week of spring practice for the Buckeyes.

Raising Money for Alzheimer’s Research

One fan bid $3,000 for he and 5 friends to have dinner with Luke Fickell and Mike Vrabel.
Fickell joked that they were paying $2,700 for him and $300 for Vrabel, and that Vrabel had to get the check.

Meyer said if Vrabel isn't the best recruiter on the staff, he's one of them. Has already proved himself in that area.

They also auctioned off the first two photos with Bruce, John Cooper, Jim Tressel and Urban Meyer posing together. One photo had them outside Ohio Stadium, and the other had them doing O-H-I-O inside the Horseshoe.

At one point they were auctioning off the picture and threatened to get Urban involved. Earle said “he's the last sub on the bench.”

Meyer referred to Tressel a “dear friend” and called his tenure “arguably the 10 best years in the history of the program.”
