PRIME CUTS: Ferentz on Recruiting

Iowa Coach Kirk Ferentz spent time talking about various aspects of recruiting during his Tuesday press conference. See what he had to say in this video of prime cuts.

Kirk Ferentz - "We just really encourage our (coaches) let's not offer unless we're sure. But it's hard to be sure. You offer up a tape, you talk to people on the phone, coaches, people in the school, and you think you know, you hope you know, but it's not the same as getting to know. So we, like most people, have offered without really meeting a player, a prospect face to face, and that's a little bit scary. It's a little bit like mail order recruiting. That's the phrase I use with our staff, and that's scary. If you guys ever bought anything from a mail order or online, the box gets there, and you open it up, and it's like, oh, I'm not sure-- you can return that stuff. This is not quite the same. So it's a little scary."
