    Probably something DressedCheese would be good at answering, maybe Mack, or any others who know a lot about recruiting... I was wondering how big a component amateur scouting by alums plays in discovering new talent. With so many alums / lifelong sidewalk fans in various locales around the country, it seems that would be an obvious resource for the athletic department to use. Perhaps they could do a better job building relationships with the high schools and selling the program, taking some of the pressure off the paid recruiters. Is this a resource Tech or other NCAA schools often use?

    From many of the knowledgeable posts I've read over the years (primarily from the BBuzzOff / GtSportsTalk sites), it seems there's no shortage of potential amateur scouts right here.
