Pelini recruiting hard in Bay area.

Just read this article from the St. Pete (or now Tampa Bay) Times' website.

Florida high school sports | Hawks trio lands offers

For those that don't know, Armwood is a state and national powerhouse when it comes to football.  Located in Seffner (agriculture community some 30 miles East of Tampa), Armwood has played many games in ESPN, as well as played and won many state titles (they're playing for states tomorrow against Miramar).  I went to school at (Wesley Chapel) Wiregrass Ranch with Brandon Teeling, and he's a complete monster.  Not too sure about the other two kids, but if they're from Armwood, they gotta be good.

So far, I like how hard Pelini is hitting recruiting, shows that he's willing to go through the not so fun stuff to help this program.

I am really enjoying all of the stories abou Pelini roaming the state making offers. In all my years of supporting Fau I cannot recall reading this much about recruiting in December! So this is what it feels like to follow a D1 program! :)

He is working real hard, no doubt! Now imagine the weeks brfore signing day when we get 8 or 10 Coaches out ON THE ROAD in the schools and in the homes. I have a feeling we are gonna do ok this year (which is a HELL of a loyt better than the past few years) and REAL damn good next year! especiallly if we mix in at least 4 JC transfers.
I know some say that is not how to build a program - look at ANY BIgSix program though - it fills IMMEDIATE NEEDS and hopefully NEVER allows major gaping holes to bring a progam down. Something we have had problems with every year the past three years (nearly entire D one year, entire O line one year, all receivers and qb last year).
Top programs use this to, as they say, reload, and stay on the winning record, bowl eligible side of the win-loss ledger. Keeps the extra bowl cash flowing in, keeps the team practicing and keeps the fans and donors happy.
