Video: Past and present Buckeyes explain what makes Urban Meyer so effective

What Urban Meyer and his staff have done at Ohio State, on the field, and in recruiting over the past few seasons is nothing short of remarkable.

As Ohio State Football's official Twitter points out, Urban holds the most wins ever by a coach in his first 15 seasons, and has the highest active win percentage as well.

There's a saying in the coaching profession that your current and former players are your best recruiters, so to explain what makes Meyer such a special coaching talent, Buckeye players entering the draft, and those already in the NFL took some time to explain what makes Urban's approach so effective among players.

"He demands excellence in every little thing that you do. Not just in football and training, but in every aspect of your life. So when you come in here and you're a product of this culture, you're a complete human being. You're a complete person, and being a good football player goes along with that," former Buckeye team captain Pat Eiflen explains in the clip.

Check out the clip for more on Urban from those he's coached.
