Q & A: Frank Wilson

Ben Love: What were some of your primary goals in your first year as recruiting coordinator?

Frank Wilson: My goal was to capture the state. There was an opportunity to do something that happens probably every 15 to 20 years in Louisiana - to have the amount of athletes that we have this year coming out of the state. So (the goal was) to put a fence around the state and keep as many as possible in the state of Louisiana to play for our flagship state university.

BL: In keeping those state boundaries, talk about the importance of not only tapping into the New Orleans area but also staying there.

FW: The metro New Orleans area is fertile ground for recruiting, but itís also an area that is being populated by every major Division-I school in the country. Never before have we seen so many guys (there), even from Pac-10 schools, Big 12 and Big Ten schools, ACC schools as well as the SEC. For many years, it was a regional area. Guys from the SEC may have recruited in the area, but now itís heavily populated by recruiters from all over the nation.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.
