Kentucky 5-Star Recruit Says Urban Meyer/Ohio State Treated Him 'like crap'
Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports
Before 5-star offensive tackle Landon Young signed to Kentucky’s 2016 recruiting class. he was being looked at by a few other schools. One of those schools was Ohio State, who's head coach Urban Meyer rubbed him completely the wrong way. Per SEC Country...
quote:

“It may not be the best thing, but actually, I was at Ohio State having a private meeting with Urban Meyer. I had gone up to camp there, and they had treated me like a piece of meat, just treated me like crap. By that time, I was a four-star tackle. I weighed about 270 [pounds], and I was 6-7.

“I wasn’t even on their radar. I came back up after they offered me. Four straight days, I got (offers from) the University of Cincinnati, Alabama, Auburn and then Ohio State. I went up and said, ‘Coach (Meyer), what was the reason that you all of a sudden offered me?’ He said, ‘We looked at your tape, and it was pretty good and I saw interest in that.’ I said, ‘Well coach, back when I was just committing to Kentucky and keeping my options open, I came up to a camp and sent you my film and everything, and you didn’t even reply. It seemed like y’all just deleted it.’

“He said, ‘Well, if you look back at that time, you were how big?’ I said, ‘6-7, 270, just like I am now.’ He said, ‘Well, you were an insubstantial tackle, an insubstantial player,’ so he was saying I (didn’t) even amount to being able to be recruited by Ohio State as a four-star tackle. He said, ‘Now what offers did you have?’ I said, ‘I had my one from Kentucky,’ and he said, ‘Well, you were an insubstantial player with insubstantial offers from an insubstantial school.’”

The road is littered with kids who have hard feelings over how they were treated by X coach at Y school. But yes, CUM is a scumbag...

He said, ‘Now what offers did you have?’ I said, ‘I had my one from Kentucky,’ and he said, ‘Well, you were an insubstantial player with insubstantial offers from an insubstantial school.’” That's hilarious. And nice to see coaches speaking the truth and not blowing smoke up these kid's @sses.
