The recruiting itself, there will be a transition that takes place. We’ve done an analysis of every BCS player in every county in every state in the country. For example, if you go into Atlanta, how many guys leave Atlanta to play in the BCS? How many guys in Atlanta leave to play in the BCS outside their state? We can go on and on. We’ve got all this data. We didn’t just go in and say, ‘Gosh, they’ve got some people there. Let’s just put some (coaches) there.’ This is all based on information that we’ve had in studies we’ve done and analysis we’ve done by our people. Just like we eventually put a lot of coaches in Texas because it was the right thing to do, we’ll tweak this as we go. [... W]e will always be in Dallas. We will always be in Houston. But we also know that gives us an opportunity to get into other parts of the SEC, the north part of Florida, the Panhandle, Tampa through Orlando into Jacksonville, and certainly Atlanta and South Georgia. So, there’s a lot of players there. It’s about evaluating well. [...] And after this year, we’ll have graduated 96 percent of our players in the last six years. We win at Mizzou. We graduate our athletes. So, there’s a little more firepower when we go in there. I think there’s some respect for our program.

The Money Quote from Pinkel on Recruiting the SEC, per Matter (our guy kinda knows what he's doing).
