College recruiting is a market of identifying holes and then looking to fill those holes with the most talented players. Each season, college coaches search their rosters and look at the current crop as well as what is coming up the pipeline from incoming recruiting classes. For some programs, those needs can mean the difference between a conference title or a quick end to the season.
