It might sound counterintuitive to sign with a recruiting agency after all, but that’s exactly what Rutgers’ head football recruiting officer, Paul Goudreau, did after he landed the coveted position in the summer of 2016.
Goudsie, who also works at ESPN, said he went through all the recruiting process before making the decision to leave Rutgers.
It’s a huge deal, he said.
It puts you in a position where you can really see how much you’re being paid.
It does not come without a lot of scrutiny.
“You have to have a good personality and be able to speak to the players,” Goudre said.
You have to put your head down and be ready to answer questions and really go at it from day one.” “
And there are a lot more questions that come along with it.
You have to put your head down and be ready to answer questions and really go at it from day one.”
He said he’s had to take on a different role in recruiting, one that has given him more freedom to spend more time in the office and less time in front of the computer.
“There is so much more freedom when you are in a different position,” Gaudreau said.
But what’s even more important is that the job is very rewarding.
Gaudsie said he has never been more motivated to make sure that Rutgers is recruiting well, which is why he’s excited to get the opportunity to return to Rutgers this season.
“This is the best job in recruiting,” Grouser said.
