College football recruiting has become a 365 day a year job for college coaches that have another very important job to do, coach football. For the high school coach, the crush of colleges from around the country requesting video, contact information, evaluations, and more, can be equally overwhelming.

Two coaches in the state of Georgia have decided to help ease the process for coaches at both levels by launching the inaugural Scout Recruiting Expo at two locations within the Peach State. South Paulding's Tim Glanton and Kendrick's Ahmad Tinker are bringing together hundreds of coaches from around the state to meet with college recruiters in a one stop shop for Georgia Scouting.

Held in Douglasville on April 29th and Columbus on May 1st, Glanton says that he and Tinker's goal is to make the recruiting process in the state of Georgia easier for the high school and college coaches alike.

"We wanted to make spring recruiting season less troublesome," said Glanton. "Recruiters come by to visit during the school day and sometimes the high school coaches have trouble spending quality time with the recruiter because of teaching responsibilities. These events allow the high school coach to have eight hours to promote their prospects with no distractions, and it also gives the college recruiter a chance to visit a 100 high schools at one location."

As a traveling coach with the Under Armour / Scout.com Combine Series the last three years, including the last two as quarterback coach / offensive coordinator, Glanton is particularly sensitive to time constraints placed on coaches in the spring.

The concept is simple, yet exponentially valuable to all of the participants. High School Coaches from Georgia and Alabama are invited bring transcript, player profiles and Highlight videos of prospects to help promote their players to the college recruiters as well as being delivered to Scout.com.

College recruiters from all levels of football get the chance to meet with over 100 high school coaches over the course of two days, rather than spending the day driving from school to school and being lucky to crack double digits.

The events will be catered, and after the Expo in has concluded in Douglasville, University of Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban is a featured speaker.

The event promises to be the single best way for college coaches, high school coaches, and Scout.com to exchange the information needed to promote and recruit players from across Georgia and Alabama.
