Urban flips two four-star DL commits from Big Ten schools to OSU

Ohio State Introduces Urban Meyer Getty Images

Just two weeks after his hiring was made official, Urban Meyer — and the recruiting cachet that comes with his name — is already paying significant dividends for Ohio State.

And, as a result, proving costly on the verbal front for a couple of Big Ten schools.

According to multiple media outlets, a pair of four-star defensive linemen in the Class of 2012 committed to the Buckeyes on Monday.  Tommy Schutt, the No. 5 defensive tackle in the country and the top-rated player in the state of Illinois, committed to OSU after being a firm Penn State verbal right up until the Jerry Sandusky scandal broke in State College, while Se’Von Pittman, the No. 8 defensive end in the country and No. 3 player in the state of Ohio, had been decommitted from Michigan State to stay in his home state.

Both players visited Ohio State this past weekend, and spent extensive time with Meyer.  Suffice to say, the presence of the former Florida head coach made a significant impression on the two linemen and played a commitment-shifting role in their decisions.

“I had a great visit this weekend to Ohio State and got to know the coaches and the players better,” Schutt told Rivals.com. “I spent a lot of time talking to Urban Meyer.”

“My official visit was great,” Pittman told the same website. “I got to sit down with the guys and talk to coach Meyer. … For me to leave a coach like [MSU's Mark Dantonio], [Meyer] had to be a great coach and a great person too and everything he told me was what I wanted to hear to be comfortable enough to [decommit from the Spartans].”

The news of Pittman’s decommit from MSU came as a surprise to the Canton (OH) high schooler’s coach.

“For 5 1/2 months, I didn’t think there was a chance in the world this would happen because Se’Von was sold on coach (Mark) Dantonio and Michigan State,” Canton McKinley’s Ron Johnson told the Columbus Dispatch. “Then some things happened recently that made him reconsider, and he flipped.”

Schutt’s high school coach, Chad Hetlet, told ESPN.com that OSU’s interim head coach also played a role in landing the lineman.  Luke Fickell, who will remain on Meyer’s staff after coaching the Buckeyes in the Gator Bowl vs. Florida, was Schutt’s recruiter, and Hetlet said the coach bridged the gap between the uncertainty in the post-Jim Tressel era and Meyer coming to Columbus.

“Ohio State did a nice job as a staff of hanging in there,” Hetlet told the website.

“And coach Fickell did a nice job of staying in communication with him. He told him everything will work out. When coach Meyer got the job, they got in contact with Tommy immediately. From that point he went on to take an official visit and was blown away by everything.”

Schutt, who had OSU squarely in his mix prior to the NCAA issues that hit the football program, becomes the third Nittany Lions verbal pledge to decommit since Sandusky, the former PSU defensive coordinator, was indicted on child sex-abuse charges.

It should be noted that verbal commitments are non-binding, and recruits — as shown in these two decommitments — can change their mind all the way up to putting their Herbie Hancocks on a Letter of Intent beginning in early February.  It also should be noted that the coaches in Meyer’s new conference are likely none too pleased with having their verbals poached by the new coach on the block.

Right or wrong, though, they’d better get used to these “new” recruiting ways — the SEC recruiting ways — or risk getting left behind.

    I am sure they are also upset about letting this snake on campus last year to film practices under his guise as an ESPN analyst.

    Unfair to say, it is the SEC recruiting ways. Until a kid is signed, and it is important to remember you are dealing with teenagers, they are free to listen to any hype a coach may put out to them. I guess the other big 10 coaches just have to learn how to tell a better story. Urban, didn’t learn that just from being in the SEC. He has a God given talent for doing that, no matter where he has coached.

  3. rolltide510 says: Dec 13, 2011 10:59 AM

    Wait a second, slow down — kids flip their commitments to other schools before signing day, and this is some low-down-dirty SEC thing?

    Good lord Big 10, will you EVER join the big leagues?

  4. drexelvol says: Dec 13, 2011 11:00 AM

    Flipping recruits from Penn State should be pretty easy these days. Any talented recruit that goes there should have their head examined.

  5. soflatrojan says: Dec 13, 2011 11:15 AM

    I am going to be interested to see how he does with the top recruits in the Southeast. I can’t stand the guy but he is a hell of a recruiter and will run circles around the other teams in the B10.

    who cares about the committ flips, I just wanted to commend the writer for the herbie hancock reference. Sweeeeeet!!!

  7. kage10 says: Dec 13, 2011 11:31 AM

    I love reading your articles…especially when they are about OHIO STATE getting some great recruits, but will you please proofread your articles? These blogs are all showing careless grammatical errors…”It also should be noted that the coach’s in Meyer’s new conference “

    Love the Tommy Boy reference…..oh yeah, umm watch out big ten???

  9. woebegong says: Dec 13, 2011 11:35 AM

    Urban will have to build up his rep. to get kids to leave the sunny confines of the south and SEC football heaven to go to the cold confines of the mid west. Darn blood is too thin, and they shiver too much to hold onto the ball.

  10. John Taylor says: Dec 13, 2011 11:37 AM

    @kage10: that was indeed careless on my part. Thanks for pointing it out.

  11. burntorangehorn says: Dec 13, 2011 11:52 AM

    How long until Urban talks the kids into committing actual crimes instead of just NCAA violations?

    Nice! Great to see the young kids get to chose from the lesser of the 2 evils.

  13. texbornlsufan says: Dec 13, 2011 12:13 PM

    Pretty nice to have one coach perparing for the Bowl Game and another out recruiting! Doesn’t seem very fair to the other schools but I’m sure the OSU fans could care less. That is until the shoe is on the other foot and they would be crying like TIDE FANS!

  14. majorpayne27 says: Dec 13, 2011 12:16 PM

    Lets not get carried away with comments like “SEC recruiting ways”. This is commonplace in D1 recruiting, regardless of conference. It’s highly naive to think this practice is even slightly exclusive to the SEC.

    Michigan has been heavily recruiting OSU commit Brionte Dunn, how is that any different?

  15. baywatchboy says: Dec 13, 2011 12:24 PM

    Just to be clear, Meyer did not walk on water to get Schutt. He got him because Penn State allowed a child rapist to g̶e̶t̶ ̶c̶a̶u̶g̶h̶t̶ work and hang out on campus.

  16. pryor4heisman says: Dec 13, 2011 12:29 PM

    Gee, Tommy Schutt had a tough decision.

    Risk getting assaulted in the showers at Penn St or come with National Championships with tOSU.

    hmmm…

    “How long until Urban talks the kids into committing actual crimes instead of just NCAA violations?”

    =========================

    Hey burntorangehorn, cut out the Meyer trash talk! You know as well as I do that any recruit worth his salt is committing actual crimes before setting foot on campus.

  18. BrownsTown says: Dec 13, 2011 12:59 PM

    Some perspective here….The Big 10 generally did have a code of not recruiting another team’s commits. When RichRod came on board, he stirred up a lot of ill will by going against that code. Brady Hoke seems to be taking the opposite approach of Lloyd Carr and Meyer obviously is not an adherent either. Maybe that’s now a part of a bygone era of Big 10(11) football. Too bad. I enjoyed coaches not calling for do-overs (hey, just like the NC game) and conducting themselves like men.

    woebegong,

    If the cold makes your legs cold, you can always wear tights under your skirt. Is this really an issue (for anybody under the age of 68)? I’m sure the Steelers or Packers want a guy that’s afraid to play in the cold. Besides, “cold” in the north is usually just 40-45 in October/November.

    Looks like the OSU boosters are stepping up with the cash quickly.

    Winning ONE national title in the last 40 years is hardly winning “National Championships with tOSU”.

    Besides, if a recruit wants to win a national title, he should play for an SEC team instead of a Little Ten team anyway.

    Brownsatown,

    When the kids are in the NFL that’s for the money. When you are in college, you would prefer to stay closer to home and especially avoid cold weather if you can. So, sorry the facts disturb you, but that’s the truth.

  24. lindabeezie says: Dec 13, 2011 1:49 PM

    All you OSU haters, check this out: we hope you enjoyed the ONE year of mediocrity from OSU, because that’s all you’re going to get! We’re coming back, so be scared…be very scared. We will dominate The Big Ten again as we have for years. If you want to root for a winner, become a Buckeye. If not, shut your trap and accept your defeat like a man!

  25. angelheartsbuckeyes says: Dec 13, 2011 1:55 PM

    Few things:

    1) Both Illinios and Miami have both applied for and been granted the SAME waiver to have one coach recruit and one coach the bowl. UM did it with RichRod, so wipe some ‘tussin on that butt-hurt and get over it.

    2) Hoke poached one of our best recrutis (Kalis) right after the tattoo scandal broke. Verbals are verbals. If you are an 18 year old kid and want to play professionally, go where you think you have the best shot. Fickell may not have been able to parlay time at tOSU into the NFL, but Meyer can. Until the signature it on the dotted line, its fair game. Santreal Henderson is a prime example of us being on the losing end.

    3) This is not an ‘SEC’ thing. There is plenty to pin on that conference (oversigning), but this is not universal to the southeast.

    4) Its 12:54 and Michigan still sucks.

    ONE measly NC title in over 40 years is hardly being a “winner”. But enjoy “winning” the We Todd Ed Conference title going forward. In the end, your team is still only a bunch of “We Todds”.

    Okay – it appears we have an awesome shot at Carmen Williams (Linebacker from MA) who has only OSU and PSU on his list! Doesn’t hurt that he and his dad use to hang out with Mike Vrabel when he was a Patriot!!!

    Noah Spence (5 star defensive end) and Cyrus Jones (4 star rating) coming to town next weekend.

    The new DC is probably smiling quite a bit right now!!!

    Flipping recruits..

    Everyone has forgotten about the recent transgressions at the university..

    But in 3-4 years, when the Texas/OU/Bama job comes open, watch him get “sick” suddenly and “retire” again, only to reappear at one of those programs. Yeah, Florida fans didn’t believe it would happen either.

    What would you have everyone do exactly? Rehash the tattoo situation over and overa ad-naseum? Oh, wait, ESPiN already did that…

    Obviously you know very little about Meyer otherwise you would not make the ridiculous statement about other job openings. He is FROM Ohio. He COACHED under Earle Bruce. tOSU is his DREAM job (as evidenced by out-clauses in both his Florida and ESPiN contracts relevant to tOSU).

    Will he retire from here? Doubtful. But, at the same time, you will not see him pull a Nick Saban at Ohio State. Sorry to burst yet another of your bubbles.

    You are right about it being a tatt00-less bowl. It is also apparently talentless as well. Good luck against those perennial powerhouse Hokies.

  45. 10of14 says: Dec 13, 2011 7:29 PM

    Calm down Urban fans…a lot of schools are benefiting from the Penn State debacle, so he can not be credited with this recruit. However, the NCAA, AD Gene Smith’s boys, are responsible for OSU getting an advantage. They have allowed OSU to have two full time coaching staffs during this busy bowl season. If you have to coach to win a bowl game, along with the media commitments, you are left with no time to recruit. With OSU, this is a different story. OSU has a new coach spending 24/7 recruiting because he could care less, nor has to worry about the outcome of a bowl game. Shame on you NCAA and congratulations OSU for getting the NCAA to get on their knees for their main man Gene Smith.

  47. bozosforall says: Dec 13, 2011 7:49 PM

    Just look at all of the OSU morons circle-jerking over a couple of recruits switching from Pedophile State to their overrated school. Just remember…the SEC has claimed the last five(soon to be six) BCS national titles (and six of the last eight)…the road to the championship has, does and will run through the SEC. So far your team (and the rest of the Little Ten) has failed in head-to-head matches to wrest it from any team from the SEC. The top talent lies in the South and the SEC owns the South, where most of the players end up playing. Meyer might dip into Florida on his recruiting swing but he won’t come away with much, since the players know that they will get plenty of publicity staying close to home and playing in the top-rated SEC. Add to that the fact that it’s much warmer in the South, the women are much better looking (and willing to take care of the football heroes) and the players get to play in front of family and friends…and Meyer comes up short on all counts.

    In short (like you guys when you finally convince one of those fat Ohio women to let you have some), the Little Ten will never compete with the SEC, a conference that only figures to get stronger as time goes by. Just look at the current trend (five titles in a row, with a sixth insured because they are the first conference to get both slots in one NC game in BCS history) and see that the rest of the conferences don’t have a chance.

    Michigan is the beneficiary of the BCS rule that says, no conference can have 3 teams in the BCS bowls. Otherwise you would most likely be facing Arkansas and go home with only a memory, and know what it means to play a decent SEC team. I would think in light of that fact, this Tattoo free bowl, as you call it, should be considered your late Christmas present.
    I wonder how many Michigan players have tattoos of some sort adorning their body? That really isn’t much of a comment to make. Just look at the players on the field these days that don’t have some tattoos. I bet not a whole lot that don’t.

  54. tobeexact says: Dec 14, 2011 11:03 AM

    All I see posted on here by ohio, lying , cheating st is a bunch of talk that the football team has never been able to back up in a NC game , never mind a regular bowl game .
    I heard the same thing about your beloved tressel, and where is he at now . As for urban meyer ,it is a fact that while at florida he had the distinct honor of having the most players in the ncaa with some form of disciplinary problems. I believe the number was well over a 5 thousand infractions whether on or off the field, and we know where his morals lye, and that is money . Not just him but ohio , cheating , lying st, he was qouted saying that the AD would have to go because he didnt like him and then reported that the school was looking for a new AD. But I guess they wrote down the right number on a piece of paper . As for recruiting and them decommitting it happens all the time and has nothing to do with scandals. If you actually read when the scandal first broke, the penn state recruit you got and his family were qouted and stated that it would depend on joe pa still being there along with the other coaches. And i will say to all the idiots that you bashing penn state for what sandusky may or may not have done shows your child like mentality. As proven every year by facts not a bunch of talking out your ass because you watch espn or some news channel who gladly enjoys you watching them put out nothing but rumors or what they think happened and are smiling all the way to the bank. Penn state was number 1 in graduation rates among athletes with no difference in race .
    They Also bring in more viewer money then any other school in the big ten along with other funds which the entire convergence reaps the benefits . Why dont you look up ohio, lying , cheating st or lsu or any of the bcs top 25 , the numbers are pathetic . Penn state graduates are also number one among the fortune 500 companies when looking to hire.
    Now lets see , we all know that ohio, cheating, lying st is the Bigs favorite pet team . The Bigs commissioner actually lobbied the ncaa to let the 5 players accused of ncaa violations to be allowed to play in last years bowl game and instead serve there 5 game suspension this year,hmm where is pryer and those other players . And the fact the ncaa has yet to apply sanctions against ohio st and the bottom dweller at 6&6 gets rewarded for cheating by being allowed to play in another bowl game and one that is a joke.
    Also by not applying sanctions , and im sure the Big commissioner had something to do with that as well ,has allowed them to get a coach they wanted and get recruits that probably wouldnt have gone there for various reasons such as possible bowl games and scholarship reductions.
    And as florida fans know all to well that once meyers recruits became the starters they couldnt win and it is a pattern no matter where he has coached. I actually watched most of his interview with the AD he doesn’t like and not once did they mention academics when talking about getting recruits. Thats because they cant , the school doesnt care about whether a player can even sign there own name. When asked about braxto meyers comments, well he is a good looking kid with a great smile .
    And as far as the sec dominating big ten schools , why dont you mention penn state in bowl match ups , lets see they beat lsu a few years ago , tennessee when they were a great sec team , auburn etc.
    But I will say with a smile on my face I thoroughly enjoy watching over rated ohio, lying , cheating st get there butts kicked in those games. And the ex florida coach mr zook within the first year at illinois verbally bashed the officials or refs for you know the school,for getting calls they shouldnt .
    I wonder if they investigated the ncaa if they wouldnt find a money trail leading to you know the school , and why they havent handed down there sanctions.

    Easy with the Urban’s “dream job” was OSU crap. He also had out clauses for ND. He was offered at ND before Weis and refused because they refused to relax Freshman student athlete academic standards to match those at Florida. So big proud OSU fans got their boy, but he was not ONLY on a destiny to Buckeye Land as many of you thought.

    We are big proud OSU fans and we did get one of the best coaches in the game today. Deal with it – because you’re attempts to cut on our university, our coach, our fans, and our team only make us laugh! We really don’t give a f@#$ what you like, don’t like, or think about anything OSU!

    Well the only thing in my post that isnt fact,is me bashing ohio st for being cheaters or lyers, but since you and others can post a bunch of crap about penn state that you have no facts to back it up with . Then when i do it you dont like it.
    But as far as any stats I put in my post , they are actual facts you can look up on the internet , there not just a bunch of rumors or statements made by idiots from the news or espn or people blogging. So go ahead and disprove them if you can.
    And unlike you im a true BIG fan , which means i root for any BIG school when they play out of conference games or bowl games . I put the other shit in there to prove a point , that anyone can start a rumor or say anything they want with out any of them being true.

    All I see posted on here by ohio, lying , cheating st is a bunch of talk that the football team has never been able to back up in a NC game , never mind a regular bowl game .

    he was qouted saying that the AD would have to go because he didnt like him and then reported that the school was looking for a new AD.

    URBAN LIAR – there is never a lie to big or small that he won’t utter for his own benefit – even if it deals with his health or his family. I hope OSU is investing heavily in defibrillators around the sports complexes.

    Look for more recruits to decommit from Penn State. Unless they are a legacy recruit (maybe) most kids (and their parents) will run as far as possible from that nasty scandal.

    No, you’re facts are incorrect – Ohio State is 6 – 3 in the BCS games including a National Championship! Not sure what your definition of success in bowl games is, but 6 -3 isn’t sucking!

    When it is all said and done – I can absolutely say one thing for a fact – I am ELATED that I am not a fan of, nor a graduate, nor affiliated with PSU at this point in time. Yes, my coach lied and covered up minor violations committed by his players. However, that is going to PALE in comparison to the horrid cover ups that went on a PSU and the entire administration. I may have a bowl ban for one year but PSU is going to be scarred for decades to come and likely so. Who in their right mind wants to go play for a college that condoned and covered up one of their own anally raping and abusing little boys in the shower.
