For most schools, recruiting is very fluid. They can be hot one year, like California was in 2012, and then cold the next year as the Bears are now. I've always said that the key people in recruiting for a program are the assistant coaches, because they perform most of the grunt work and build the relationships that attract recruits to campus.
With that said, there are many head coaches who love recruiting and really seal the deal on prospects. Bobby Bowden was legendary at closing on a recruit in home visits, and Pete Carroll was also an outstanding recruiting head coach.
In this piece, we're going to rank the top 20 recruiting head coaches as of right now, today, this moment. Some big names may be low in the rankings while other coaches may be high due to their performance right now on the recruiting trail. Let's get this fired up and running!
