Recruiting in many ways is like politics. It is local. Coach Jones seems to understand that you have to do the little things.
The last 3 coaches never had to do the grunt work to get recruits but I really think that Coach Jones understands the concept of recruiting based upon his experience of doing it as an underdog.
Fulmer - Head Coach or assistant at UT for the majority of his career. The UT name was what he used.
Kiffin - Daddy's boy who never had to do any heavy lifting, preferred to run his mouth about other programs.
Dooley - Daddy's boy who rode on coat tails of his father's name as a coach or on the Saban charm. And to me,his being a lawyer did not help when it came to recruiting. He seemed to think that he was the smartest guy in the room. That can lead to a vibe of arrogance that parents and recruits pick up on.
Jones - worked his way through the coaching ranks at smaller schools for the most part. Even as a head coach had to go head to head against more prestigous programs. He has the metal to get the job done.
