Welcome to the 247Sports Football Recruiting Podcast, where Blair Angulo will be discussing all the headlines, buzz and hot topics from the recruiting trail with the stellar team of experts across the 247Sports network.

You want more insight on the latest intel? We’ll tackle that. You want more background or perspective on some trends in the 247Sports Crystal Ball? We’ll dive into those predictions.

This podcast will aim to do a bit of everything. We’ll assess the star rankings. We’ll have player and coach interviews. We’ll go in depth on teams setting the recruiting world on fire. During the season, we’ll look ahead to big recruiting weekends and recap all the important official visits. We’ll break down commitments and de-commitments, we’ll highlight notable lists of top schools and analyze the occasional flip that nobody saw coming.

That’s what’s going to set this podcast apart from others. This show is going to be a team effort — from the evaluations of Barton Simmons and Charles Power, to the top-notch recruiting info from analysts such as Steve Wiltfong, Greg Biggins, Brandon Huffman, Allen Trieu, Brian Dohn, Gabe Brooks and Andrew Ivins –– we’re going to dig into our deep roster that also includes reporters that have boots on the ground covering specific teams. These guys have the nation’s top recruits covered like no one else.
