Urban Meyer’s ‘Missing Piece’ recruting pitch is a bit puzzling (photo)
Leave to Urban Meyer to come up with a creative, yet disturbing, method of courting a highly prized recruit.
According to a photo posted to Instagram by Mike Gesicki, a tight end out of New Jersey currently ranked seventeenth at his position by Scout.com,, the Ohio State Buckeyes coach sent out a unique pitch to the young man that is more puzzling than convincing.
Referring to Gesicki as “The Missing Piece,” the pitch features the tight end as the subject of a jigsaw puzzle, with his head being the piece that’s missing.
Wait. Is that some kind of shot at the kid? As in “Only Urban Meyer could put his head in the right place”? Somehow, I doubt it, but it doesn’t make it any less bizarre.
