With college football season officially over, coaches are able to visit recruits in-person again leading up to National Signing Day — I guess it's still technically called that — in February.

When a large portion of your job is making 16- and 17-year-olds think you're cool, you have to be willing to do things like roll up to the front door of a high school in a dump truck.
