As a recruiter, you always want to be finishing on recruits and closing recruitments with commitments. That's what your job is when it comes to recruiting. Closing takes a special "it" factor, and not every great recruiting coach is a great closer.

Some coaches rely on heavy pursuit and persistence as recruiters. They formulate relationships early in the process and just stay on a recruit patiently but persistently until he commits to the coach and the program.

Other coaches are simply great closers. They know how to either talk to a recruit on the phone, have a private meeting with the recruit or simply are magical during the in-home visit.

The greatest recruiting closer of all time is probably none other than Bobby Bowden. Bowden was legendary at entering a player's recruitment in January and closing out top commitment after top commitment, which gave Florida State those legendary recruiting classes.
