LOS ANGELES -- The month of May is always one of the most critical times in the recruiting calendar.

In addition to the ongoing attempt to secure verbal commitments, it's also a rare opportunity for college coaches to hit the road and gather as much information as they can about the players they are recruiting. This is not to be taken lightly, since NCAA regulations have severely limited the amount of contact a staff can have to properly research which recruits fit best in their program.
