Summer conversations: Tim Beckman (part II)

Who is the best recruiter you've ever been around?

I don't know if there's just one guy. Coach (Jim) Tressel did an outstanding job in certain areas. Coach (Urban) Meyer, he does a great job. And Coach (Mike) Gundy. If you look at a program, recruiting-wise, that has gone from where we are to the top-5, it's Oklahoma State.

And it's not always about just recruiting, it's about the evaluation. If I had to say who I learned how to evaluate players from, it's my father. He was a player personnel guy in the NFL.
