Hey, so, I've been on this board for awhile now, and using the site for longer. I follow recruiting somewhat closely. It seems to me that recruiting information is much, much more widely available now. That said, some posters seem to have a great deal of knowledge about recruiting in the early 2000s and even the 90s. This is a group of legends and myths that I know nothing about, as I was too young to really care that much at the time-the first recruit I recall reading about was Mike Hart, in the Ann Arbor News. I was just wondering. . .where does this all come from? How was recruiting covered in the past, and how do those of you in the know find out stories that the general public doesn't seem to know?
As an example, I hear cryptic mentionings of a lot of recruitments, but never full stories of what happened. Carlos Brown is a good example; Ronald Johnson is a bad one.
