Lol so that's a pretty big population to only have 1 or 2 guys....
Perroni will add Midwest value IMO. He covers Texas (we have that state surrounded now lol) and all Big 12 states. Areas within that region that Midwest programs recruit.
National Director of Scouting & Recruiting Analyst
nice shirt Chris. Do you work with Igoe on the ECU site as well?
ECU grad, tOSU fan for life. Father since 1/12/13.
Here's a comment from Bobby Burton on Brian Perroni, who is the publisher of Hookem.com and played a key role in Perroni's decision to move to 247Sports:
Brian is an outstanding reporter. He is working not only for Hookem and for Gigem but for the entire network.
We pride ourselves on being the best in bringing you recruiting news, not just the breaking stuff but the ins and the outs.
I'm here to tell you that Brian can and will help us provide a better product to you. He has almost 10 years experience in this business and has built up an amazing amount of sources and credibility with high school coaches.
He doesn't play favorites with one school over another, so when he says something it's how he feels, not how he wants to feel, which seems to be where so many other reporters are coming from these days. Brian's not here to make you feel better, he's here to bring you the news. That can be good, that can be bad, but it will be the truth.
One thing I feel confident about is that this community can handle the truth and won't dismiss people out of hand just because what they say doesn't fit their world view or what they want a recruit to say.
Bottom line, Brian talks/texts with 100 recruits a week. He will be giving you information you wouldn't know otherwise.
Is he perfect? No. But he works as hard as anyone in the business and he's as honest as the day is long.

Hard to beat the national guys you have brought in. Lot of these guys have a ton of respect around the recruiting world. You guys are building an all star team of national guys right now.
We are building a very good team.
I am looking for both "talent" and "experience" -- guys that are proven hard workers.
Over the years, the industry has been watered down with guys that only want to evaluate and spend time on other endeavors. We want workers, grinders and people that have decades of relationships.
We've got a couple more regions we need to improve, but feeling real good about where we stand right now.
Certainly improved a ton of areas coverage this summer. You guys did a ton of work this summer. Going to be a fun Fall with all of this.
Another big addition! Welcome, Brian!
