The Pac-12 is not just about sunshine and throwing the football. Its recruiting trail is fiercely competitive, with the state of California serving as the main source of talent for the conference.
Each head coach in the Pac-12 must assemble his coaching staff with a great balance of on-field tutors and skilled recruiters. Each staff in the league has at least one ace recruiter, and they're starting to shine in 2015 recruiting.
UCLA's offensive line coach is a respected recruiter on the trail. A former Pac-12 head coach is doing well recruiting for Utah, plus California's running backs coach has already lured a powerful runner to Berkeley.
