    He is from NC State. I think he was a Director of player personnel over there too.

    Actually have met him, know a little about him. He's a homerun hire for this position from what I've seen and heard. Spent several years working for Saban starting as a "do anything person" moving to a valuable recruiting position. UCF hired him, more money apparently and he was the guy in charge of "player personnel", non-coaching recruiter. Was there 1-2 years, NC State apparently wrote a bigger check, he spent the last year there. He appears to be in demand. Sharp young guy, who is tapped into recruiting, I'm sure he has decent Florida HS connections after his UCF tour of duty.
    An article in Sports Illustrated awhile back was mentioning off field guys who were becoming huge aids to schools recruiting wise and his name was mentioned. NO, he isn't a secretary!

    Now that's he's representing UF, someone should teach him about the direct address comma.

    But, he does sound like a great hire!!

    From what I can tell talking to UCF people they loved this guy. To a person nothing but positives and they really hated to see him go. Said that no one will outwork this guy. Same at NC State. Really like this hire and for that matter all the hires the HBC has made in the off season so far.
