Typically losing a defensive line coach wouldn’t get too much publicity, but when Ohio State defensive line coach Mike Vrabel announced he would be leaving for the Houston Texans, it made some noise.
Vrabel was one of the best recruiters in the country and helped the Buckeyes reel in plenty of prospects over the past few years.
While Ohio State won’t likely lose any commitments from this departure, it is a big blow to the recruiting efforts overall. Vrabel was well liked among recruits and had a lot of success with his targets.
