"It's as thorough as it gets," said Florida State running backs coach Eddie Gran. "And it never ends. You go back, you go back again and then you go back again. It's the area coach, position coach, coordinator and head coach all watching, evaluating and scrutinizing everything. It's more thorough than ever before. You also have to find out what's important to each recruit. What about their character? Are they a student in the classroom? Are they a student of the game? Do they love football or just like to wear the uniform? To be honest, recruiting is more like the NFL because it has been so intensive. We are pretty darn thorough." Besides just how effective this method of recruiting is, I think the thing we as Noles should keep in mind is that since it is shared between FSU, Alabama, Florida and Clemson the majority of our rivals on the field and recruiting trail are using the same method. I think this makes our constantly being first to offer a lot of kids that much more impressive though.
