Every college football coach in the country is under recruiting pressure, but some have it worse than others. With recruiting being so fluid and dependent on teenagers making big decisions, having a great deal of recruiting pressure as a coach is not ideal.
However, some coaches have rival schools recruiting awfully well, so they face pressure to catch up. Other coaches have brought in subpar classes, while recruiting pressure is also great when a coach is in his first year taking over a program.
With USC coming back to form, UCLA head coach Jim Mora must respond with a strong class. Charlie Strong is following Mack Brown's footsteps at Texas, so he has huge shoes to fill on the recruiting trail. Plus, a Big Ten coach has recruited well during his tenure, but his rival school has recruited even better.
