Just picked up a copy of Meat Market, the "inside look at college recruiting" by Bruce Feldman. It's a few years old now but is a must read for us recruiting junkies. I wondered what everyone here thinks/thought of it if they read it.
It's fascinating to me seeing into what goes into recruiting. The film evaluation in particular was enlightening because of what Orgeron and staff were looking for, the fluid hips, change of direction, quick fibers, etc, all stuff I recognize from RichRod and co.
I'll admit I look at film sometimes and don't know what I should be seeing, or if what I'm seeing is that impressive.
That said, I watched a complete highlight reel of Devin Gardner's takeoffs tonight (yeah, I know, it took me forever) and could see what the recruitniks mean by the gaming intangible. The kid is a winner with a nose for the endzone and almost no fear, and he takes some hard hits, boy.
Anyhow, what parts of MM were your favorites, etc?
***Rumor from the Tennessee Scout Board***
Ed Orgeron texted all Tennessee recruits "You're welcome to join us at USC"
Hey Tennessee, you play with the pigs, you're going to get dirty.
