We’re barreling headlong into the start of football season. Teams are already heavy into their summer workouts and, before you know it, players will be reporting for preseason camps.
Time now to introduce a new feature for the AJC Recruiting Blog. Starting this Friday, I give you the “AJC Recruiting Mailbag!”
OK, so there’s no cutting-edge new concept here. Numerous sports writers and bloggers I know and follow utilize mailbags. Besides, my good friend, whom I shall refer to only as The Neighbor, absolutely insists I need to “do a mailbag.” So I’m going to do one.
But I do feel it can be particularly useful in recruiting, especially as we get further into the fury that is the football season (does it ever really end in the South?).
Regulars here know I post blogs three or more times a day during the season. Thanks to your continued interest, there are often hundreds of comments for each blog. Among those comments are often questions posed directly to me. But as I continually move on to the next thing, I may not always see those queries and some of the questions may go unanswered.
Well, hopefully that won’t happen anymore. Or at least it shouldn’t. Of course, there will be a reasonableness factor to this equation. Your questions ideally will pertinent and specific and, well, not silly. Once a week — STARTING THIS FRIDAY – I’ll pull out the mailbag and answer the best questions to the best of my ability. Some, I’m sure, will become blogs of their own.
So remember this e-mail address or write it down and put it somewhere you can find it for future reference: AJCrecruiting@yahoo.com.
By the way, if you’re uncomfortable with me using your real name in the blog — I know, admitting you follow recruiting can be shameful — just indicate so and I’ll use whatever handle you would like to go by. Again, only reasonable queries will be considered.
Responses to the best questions will be posted here every Friday starting this week. Initially I wasn’t sure when it’d start but I’ve already received enough good questions to realize we can go ahead and get started.
Hope this is something you will like. As always, thanks for hanging out.
