Recruiting news via aviation

Auburn's recruiting effort is in high gear. The skies are a great way to monitor where coaches are headed and, as such, it's easier to understand what they're trying to accomplish.

TODAY'S TRAVELS
  • Coaches have been in Texarkana, Texas, which is home to WR prospect Cobi Hamilton.

  • Another Auburn-owned jet flew to nearby Sulphur Springs, which is home to coveted QB prospect Tyrik Rollison.

  • Coaches have been in Gadsden, which is home to CB prospect Dre Kirkpatrick and WR prospect Kendall Kelly. Auburn is in the hunt for Kelly.

  • Coaches will head for Biloxi, Miss., this afternoon. That provides the closest airport to Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College in Perkinston. That's where WR/RB/DE Demond Washington resides these days.

Miss St is supposed to install a UF type spread which will place a lot of pressure on the WRs.....so why hire Knox? Yeah....kids really do flock to that oasis.

Good luck coach Knox.....yo might want to bone up on WR fundamentals.

The jets are owned by Auburn University and piloted by Auburn University employees.

The school is on the hook for all that fuel and upkeep and whatnot. Not cheap.

On another thread, there was talk about Auburn recruit Joel Kight. I just checked AJC's Georgia 150 list. He is listed on it and rated an A-, not bad considering Brandon Jacobs is also listed as A-. And, Andre Harris and Lutzenkirchen are listed as A. I think Auburn is doing just fine on their recruiting thus far.

Now, if we can just get some of those nationally known recruits, that would be icing on the cake.

I find it hard to fathom that the state of Alabama is paying for recruiting..

I need clarification on that, Dear Leader. The university uses those jets for non-athletic purposes as well.

Yeah, quite interesting. Makes you think it might be harder to make Nebraska and Michigan bounce back than one would think.

I also thought it was cool that despite this last season, we were still 11th in most wins between 2004-2008 according to the table in the bottom.

My guess is MSU got Knox primarily because of recruiting. It is going to be interested to see MSU with a wide open offense. Usually a wide open offense at MSU means that run outside as well as inside.

I would assume that the funding for activities which involve the plane are handled much the same as any other funding with the University. Consider it a state agency of sorts. All spending requires a fund code to be associated with it. Use of the plane for by the business school would have a specific fund code, use by the vet school would have its own fund code. And, I'm sure the athletic department has its own fund code. That way funding for plane flight for the purpose of recruiting does not come from academic budgets, but rather athletic recruiting budgets.

"He is one of the best defensive coaches in the game and this is a chance to gain some great experience and learn from the best. You don't get many chances like that in the coaching business. When you combine that opportunity with the history and tradition at Alabama, it was a decision that was best for me personally as well as professionally.
