Under Urban Myere’s leadership, and with Mickey Marotti leading the Buckeye’s strength program, Ohio State’s NFL pedigree has quickly rose to a point where they’re in the conversation of one of the best college football programs in the country at preparing guys for the next level.
To help illustrate that, they had someone compile the salaries of the NFL players that have gone through the programs at Ohio State and Florida during Meyer and Marotti’s time there.
What that research uncovered sends a loud and clear message to recruits who have dreams of playing in the NFL. And we’re not talking just making an NFL roster here, we’re talking getting paid, and earning your keep, once you get there.
$677 MILLION IN NFL SALARIES!!! That’s incredible.
