Mike Schaefer of HuskersIllustrated.com wrote Tuesday on the topic of how Urban Meyer’s hiring at Ohio State may affect NU’s ability to recruit in Ohio.
“It’s definitely good for their program,” said 2012 Nebraska commit Greg McMullen of Akron. “It’s rare for one coaching legend to leave a program and legacy for another one to come into it. It’s unheard of.”
But the four-star defensive end isn’t wavering on his allegiance to NU.
“Congratulations to Urban Meyer and Ohio State, but I’m a Blackshirt. I’m not going anywhere,” McMullen said. “I don’t have a reason to, because he can’t do anything for me.”
While McMullen remains firm for the Huskers, Meyer’s hiring could make it harder for the Huskers and coach Bo Pelini to pull highly touted recruits from the state, 247Sports Midwest recruiting analyst Steve Wiltfong said.
