    So Andy – are you part of the “#8 Recruiting is increasingly done online” search feature for coaches. Maybe you could get a slight edge with #9 and #10 with a little extra work. I am playing in part but a little serious also. I know some college coaches will read the local papers or online sources to check up on potential recruits in a specific area. When you consider that most local papers such as the N&R and W-S Journal have fee walls to read their information online – this site is the only game in town for local sports news if you are not from Greensboro.
