Photo: Ohio State Sends Football Recruit A Puzzle With His Face As “The Missing Piece”

Yesterday, tight end recruit Mike Gesicki of New Jersey received one of the better recruiting “letters” we’ve seen in the mail. Urban Meyer and Ohio State are working hard to collect the 3-star talent, and they came up with a pretty creative ploy to catch his attention:

Yes, that’s a puzzle featuring Gesicki as “the missing piece” for Ohio State — a humorous and not very subtle metaphor. Gesicki obviously enjoyed the puzzle as he posted the picture to his Instagram.

Honestly, it’s a pretty clever recruiting tactic, but unfortunately for Meyer, he probably can’t use it again — that’s the issue with a recruit putting it online and out in the open. But it will be interesting to see if the puzzle pays off.
