In anticipation of the early signing day on December 20th, college coaches everywhere are racking up the miles visiting with some of their top prospects.
Urban Meyer and defensive line coach Larry Johnson (the winner of our 2017 Defensive Line Coach of the Year award) were out in Idaho Tuesday night in the living room of four-star defensive line recruit Tommy Togiai, trying to make him the latest addition to their impressive recruiting class.
Togiai’s father, Talelelei, had the camera rolling for the moment that Tommy shared the news with Urban and coach Johnson, and both the guys jumped out of their seats in excitement. Guys with recruiting experience get that their raw reaction is the culmination of so much hard work on the phones, and miles and miles travel.
Coach Johnson got so fired up, Urban asks him a few times if he’s alright in the clip.
Talelelei shared the video on Facebook, and the reactions of the two Buckeye coaches has started to go viral.
