A 2-year-old ‘recruit’ got the attention of The Ohio State University head football coach Urban Meyer.

Sullivan Busser’s parents put together a flyer highlighting his athletic, academic and leadership skills and sent it to OSU.

Busser’s bio mentioned his date of birth (June 2011), hometown (Columbus), weight and height (25 lbs., 3’2″).

In a collage, it showed pictures of his moves on the field and in the community.

Busser received a letter from Meyer in return.

It read:

Dear Sullivan:

Your parents sent us your future Buckeye recruiting information.  We will look for you to make your collegiate football debut in 2029 — you will need to gain a little weight, but our strength staff will take care of that!  Go Bucks!

Sincerely,

Urban Meyer
Head Football Coach

It is not uncommon for Meyer to respond to letters from fans.
