Ohio State football recruits are among those who have reacted to the school's decision to suspend Urban Meyer for the first three games of the 2018 season as a result of the investigation into his handling of domestic violence allegations against now-fired assistant coach Zach Smith.

The Buckeyes have recruited nearly as well as any program in the country during the Urban Meyer era in Columbus, Ohio.

Eleven Warriors reached out to several Ohio State recruits to get their reactions to the Urban Meyer decision.

Two of those recruits are five-star commits.

From Eleven Warriors:


“It’s just good to have him back and have some normalcy again.”


“It’s great and definitely a huge relief to have this settled.”

Ohio State's 2019 class is ranked the No. 9 class in the country, No. 1 in the Big Ten.
