Few college football head coaches have had more success than Ohio State’s Urban Meyer.
And since 2000, it’s been the Buckeyes who have sent more players to the NFL Draft than any other college program.

But what does Meyer think of the Bears’ first-round pick?

CSN’s Pat Boyle asked the Ohio State head man about new Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky at the Golf.Give.Gala golf outing Monday in St. Charles.
“He’s from Mentor, Ohio. He’s from 15 minutes from my hometown,” Meyer said of the former North Carolina Tar Heel. “We tried to recruit him. Very talented guy. Committed real early to North Carolina.
“He’s only got that one year of playing, and I always worry about that going into the NFL. But as far as talent and quality kid, he’s going to be great, it might take a minute.”
Boyle also talked with Michigan head coach and former Bears quarterback Jim Harbaugh, asking the former NFL head coach about NFL veteran Mike Glennon, also new to the Bears’ quarterback room. See what Harbaugh had to say in the video above.
