From Dick Harmon, Deseret News (Utah):
In the past year, Heaps has become kind of Recruit Central. He got cell numbers of more than 50 college coaches, then he got the numbers of many top prep recruits. Then, he built a network, a clearing house. If a blue-chip guy inquired about BYU, he'd explain things... If a recruit wanted to know about Notre Dame, he'd give his take. Tennessee? He'd tell them Lane Kiffin isn't what the media makes him out to be. Charlie Weis? His Tweeter is sweeter and he's funny. Steve Sarkisian at Washington? "Energetic, a fiery guy." USC's Pete Carroll? "Very upfront, a straight shooter, doesn't mess around. He's very smooth with words. You have to watch yourself. He's quick and he'll catch you on some things. You have to be on your A-game when you talk to Carroll." It goes on with Bob Stoops to Urban Meyer and Bronco Mendenhall.
TES wonders if this will start a new trend in college football recruiting. Jake Heaps (Skyline HS, Washington) has flipped recruiting for BYU upside-down, making it as much of a recruit-driven process as it is an institution-driven process, on his own creating a network across the nation to give other recruits information they need about different schools and to lobby some of the best to go to Provo.
