Joey Kaufman of The Columbus Dispatch spoke to Brian Schottenstein, a Columbus real estate developer and OSU booster who co-founded THE Foundation with Cardale Jones.
“There isn’t a better person to have on the board than Coach Urban Meyer,” Schottenstein told Kaufman. “It goes without saying that he’s one of the greatest recruiters of student-athletes and coaches of all time. I appreciate his support and friendship.”
THE Foundation is set to launch on March 31.
