"This group has been together since 1998, when they and Heckman invented the recruiting database," said Glenn Nelson, managing editor of TheInsiders.com network. "These are All-Star scouts in their own right, but all are dedicated to covering recruiting as a team. The result of that teamwork is often magical. It's exciting to be offering their work in a high-gloss magazine that can be both a reference and keepsake for the fans."
