Few that recruited Plant QB Robert Marve in 2007 remain

This is a pretty cool read by Bruce Feldman at CBS.com.

Digging up a detailed gold cardboard spreadsheet given to him in 2007 by Plant coach Robert Weiner on a recruiting/one-day camp trip to Oxford with quarterback Robert Marve, Feldman takes a look at how many coaches and recruiters who had a hand in trying to lure the Panther signal caller to their school are still in place.

Spoiler: not many.

From the story: of the 48 schools that recruited Marve just five years ago, only seven still have the same head coach, and 19 have had multiple coaches since then. 

Wow.

Feldman was at Ole Miss working on Meat Market, his 2008 behind-the-scenes book on college football recruiting. In it, he wrote about some of Marve's experiences.

Anyway, read the article. It's good.
