From virtual campus tours to hundreds of film evaluations, college football programs adjusted their recruiting strategies this spring in order to become more efficient during the COVID-19 pandemic. RELATED: OHSAA remains optimistic that fall sports will start on schedule Former Loveland standout Luke Waddell is expected to return to Georgia Tech Mark Porter seems to always have his pulse on the college football recruiting scene around Ohio The longtime director of ScoutingOhio.com believes the COVID-19 pandemic altered the recruiting landscape this spring and has sped up the process for high school football players and college coaches evaluating those prospects.

As a parent and avid high school football follower, he's keenly aware what families experience during the college recruiting process. "I honestly think this is a horribly frustrating process in a good year," Porter said. "I think this year is absolutely like rip your hair out of your head if you are a parent or player. My heart goes out to them because you never got your chance. This is like recruiting back in the 70s or 80s when I played where after the season they (college coaches) came around and watched your tape and if the tape wasn't good enough - see you later."
