So, each school has a main recruting area where they rely on Alumni and Coaches to send top players to their programs:
Miami has South Florida ( Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, Treasure Cost, and the Keys)
Florida has Jacksonville, Orlando, Greater Orlando (Oviedo/Sanford/Apopka), and Lakeland.
FSU used to have the Big Bend (Tallahassee to AL line), Tampa/St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Bradenton (coughPeterWarrickcough), and Fort Myers/Naples(coughDeionSanderscough)
But you just dont see that anymore. Since USF got built, alot of those guys have decided to just stay home, especially when USF joined the Big East. Its is imperative that we take back the Gold Coast ASAP. But its worst when you hear stories of Louis Murphy saying he wanted to be a Nole but was told by Jeff Bowden he would only be a DB, or Jeff Demps told he was too small to play RB.
We got to start raiding Tampa Plant, Lakewood Ranch, Armwood, Bradenton Southeast, Sarasota Riverview, and North Fort Myers High. I understand the Lowndes and Byrnes pipelines, but the best talent comes out of the Sunshine. We got to get to it. And I mean physically recruiting. Not this "Rivals100 recruiting" that is correct with maybe only 33% of those guys.
Jimbo needs to hire someone very familiar with this area. Thanks to Amato we probably will never go back to Armwood. And If Dawsey is it, then he needs to get better. If not, bring in....oh idk...DERRICK BROOKS to lock this area down again. Or pay John Lilly to come back.
LETS GO NOLES....AND GO TO HELL BOSTON COLLEGE.
