Steve Addazio has been named the college football recruiter of the year by ESPN.
Addazio helped put together the consensus No. 1 class in the nation despite the uncertain status of Urban Meyer and all the changes on the coaching staff.
Addazio is presently the interim head coach while Meyer takes a leave of absence to address heath issues that worsened during last season.
When Meyer makes his return, which is expected to be for the start of spring practice on March 17, Addazio will return to his duties as offensive coordinator and offensive line coach.
