London is back in college football after a stint with the Houston Texans. He had a successful return to recruiting, pulling Nick Jenkins and Lamar Milstead from the Maryland/DC area and landing linebacker J'Courtney Williams. London has always been a great recruiter, and this year was one of his best.
Napier hit North Carolina hard, pulling in three of the top seven players from that state. Napier's recruits included Marcus Gilchrist, offensive tackle Landon Walker and defensive end Kourtnei Brown. Napier also recruited tight end Brian Linthicum from Virginia, and he has emerged as one of the best young recruiters in college football.
Maryland signed a five-star player and two four-star prospects, and Sollazzo was responsible for all three. He worked on Bruce Campbell the last two years and went into New Jersey and New York for Tony Logan and Lansford Watson, respectively.
Walton did a great job in South Florida, landing Doug Wiggins, Damien Berry and Demarcus Vandyke. He also secured the commitment of the nation's top prep school player, Graig Cooper. In such a transitional year for Miami, Walton came through for the Hurricanes.
Williams came in and handled the Dwight Jones situation very well. He also outrecruited many for wide receiver Rashad Mason. Williams brought in sleeper Brian Gupton, and the coaches like Gupton's potential. If the passing game excels down the road for UNC, it will be due – in large part – to Williams' efforts.
