247Sports Recruiting Director J.C. Shurburtt addresses Alex Collins and Bret Bielema. Shurburtt feels that Bielema has one big recruiting advantage over UA's other coaches.
I'm starting to get very excited about Collins actually coming here....
They have done everything legally possible to get him. I know they have done everything they needed to do. They can't make Fayetteville any closer to Fort Lauderdale so now it is what it is. I think UA has shot at him too.
Great article Otis!! I agree with almost all of it. Good stuff.
Would like more effort and more coaches in Texas but like you say above Otis let's see if they can pull Collins and Kirkland. That would change my opinion but I know we can get kids from Texas.

A question and a thought...Yes distance away from home I'm sure is a big consideration with recruits when deciding which scholarship offer to take but do you think the easy access to today's technology (cellphones, skype, facetime, instagram, facebook, VIOP phone service and twitter) somewhat negates distance from home as a factor in recruiting? My thoughts: Florida is much closer to Arkansas today than it was even 5 years ago. The world is shrinking because of technology (I'm playing poker onliine right now with people from Greece, Germany and the UK). The comfort level of today's young people with technology and the way it has affected their interpersonal relationships will continue to shrink the "mileage factor" when it comes to recruiting.
