SouthernPigskin.com published an interview with South Carolina recruiting coordinator Shane Beamer. In it you’ll find information on recruiting in the SEC and working for Steve Spurrier. This is the question and answer that should be of most interest to Alabama fans:
Q. Outside of Steve Spurrier, which head coach is the best recruiter in the league (SEC)?
A. I think you have a lot of good ones. You have to look at Nick Saban if you just look at results. From the job he did recruiting at LSU and how he is recruiting at Alabama. Obviously it would be hard for us to find a better track record.
