The classic NCAA commercial that states: "There are over 400,000 NCAA student-athletes, and most of us will go pro in something other than sports," applies to pretty much every college athletic program. 

It certainly applies to the Ohio State football team. The Buckeyes are one of the best programs in the country at getting its players to the NFL--Ohio State currently has 47 players on league rosters--but still, the majority of its athletes end up doing something other than football for a living. 

Urban Meyer and his staff understand this. On Friday, they brought dozens of companies and corporations to Columbus to meet with their team; to recruit them for careers after their collegiate careers.
