Florida prospects talk about Urban Meyer


We asked several of Florida's top prospects and underclassmen -- including ESPNU Watch List players, plus other highly regarded prospects from the Classes of 2013 and 2014 -- their thoughts on Urban Meyer’s return to coaching and if any of them would consider Ohio State if the Buckeyes reached out to them now.

ESPNU 150 WR Latroy Pittman, Citra North Marion (Florida commit): “I am not sure how I feel about [this situation] or what I would do if they contacted me.”

Four-star DB T.J. Davis, Tallahassee Godby (Auburn commit): “I think it’s a great move for Coach Meyer, but I’m AU all the way!”

Four-star DB Marcus Maye, Melbourne Holy Trinity (Florida commit): “I think it’s a good move for him. I’m sure they will contact me but I’m 100-percent committed to the Gators.”

Four-star DB Christopher Bivins, Gainesville (USF commit): “I feel like he wanted out of UF to begin with. He never wanted to stop coaching but he needed a reason to go somewhere else. I wish him the best at Ohio State, and I’d definitely consider the program if they contacted me. It’s a great program and now a great coach to go with it.”

Three-star ATH Demeitre Brim, Lakeland Victory Christian (Virginia commit): “Coach Meyer is a big-time coach going to a big-time program. There’s little doubt something positive will happen there quickly. If Ohio State reached out to me I would definitely consider them now that he’s there.”

ESPNU Watch List WR Jordan Cunningham, Davie University School: “I would consider Ohio State. I am considering a lot of schools.”

ESPNU Watch List WR Ahmad Fulwood, Jacksonville Bishop Kenny: “I would definitely consider OSU now that Coach Meyer is there, but my interest level would really depend on what kind of offense he was going to install.”

ESPNU Watch List RB Adam Lane, Winter Haven: “I would say that it is a great school and a great fit for him because he grew up there. If I were to get an offer from Ohio State it would be a great opportunity to learn from a coach who knows how to win.”

Class of 2013 ATH William Likely, Glades Central: “I would love to see what Ohio State looks like in the near future.”

ESPNU Watch List CB Sojourn Shelton, Plantation (FSU commit): “Yes I would consider Ohio State. My best friend goes there and Coach Meyer is just really a great addition to the program. I am very interested to see what he does in his first year.”

Class of 2013 DB Damonte Jones, Ocala St. John Lutheran: “Yes I would consider Ohio State in my recruitment. Coach Urban Meyer is a real good coach and he has had a lot of success.”

Class of 2013 DB Jamonte Jones, Ocala St. John Lutheran: “Heck yeah, Coach Meyer is great!”

Class of 2013 WR Anthony Lauro, Bradenton Manatee (via his father): “I did talk to [Anthony] about it, he said he would like Coach Meyer’s offense and would definitely like to consider Ohio State. Our whole family is from there.”

Class of 2013 DB Austin Logan, Tallahassee Florida High: “I like Coach Meyer because he’s a winner. He has won wherever he goes and he’s a great recruiter.”

Class of 2014 RB Sony Michel, Plantation American Heritage: “I think it’s a great move for [Coach Meyer] because it’s his dream job. I’m open to Ohio State like I am to every school right now.”
