Four-star running back Kameron Martin was recruited heavily by Texas running back coach Tommie Robinson. Robinson announced today he’d be leaving for USC next season.
This news angered Martin, who though a Baylor commit since 2014, found Robinson’s change of address disturbing. Had he committed with the Longhorns, he’d be without the coach who made him promises about his and the team’s future.
Clearly the young man has a point. Recruitment is a business. A coach is only as good as his recruits are, though, ultimately, that coach’s career is far more important than the kids he swayed to sign.
