First Year Coaches Have A Tough Time Recruiting No Matter The Name Or The School

As evidenced by Florida's re-recruitment of one of the top players in the nation, DE Ray Drew.

"For a while, it seemed as though Florida was a legitimate option for Drew. He had developed a solid relationship with tight ends coach Brian White, but after the resignation of Urban Meyer and the massive staff changes, Drew dropped the Gators from consideration.

Even with White remaining on staff, having less than a month to get to know new coach Will Muschamp and defensive coordinator/defensive line coach Dan Quinn, Drew said there doesn’t seem to be enough time to really get to know Florida’s new coaches."


Will Muschamp has a reputation as an excellent recruiter at LSU, Auburn, and Texas. But sometimes its tough when you are the new kid on the block with a limited amount of time.

Al Golden is having a similar problem at Miami who seems to be losing commitments at a rate of one per week.

Still despite all these recent on-air commitments, National Signing Day is still a month away and the recruiting rhetoric trying to sway kids will ratchet up to political race levels shortly.
