I am assuming he will be responsible for getting Texas recruits here? Hopefully, we will still recruit Texas but at a higher level. It is good to see Mora hiring all these young hungry coaches vs. a head coach that just help their buddies get jobs.From the Courant:
Pehrson, 37, was the director of recruiting at Texas Tech for past three years. Before that, he worked in a similar capacity at Houston and Navy. At UConn he’ll likely be organizing camps and recruiting visits, among other duties. A college baseball player, he played two years in the Baltimore Orioles’ farm system.
“Preston possesses a relentless work ethic and has a variety of experiences and knowledge that will help to enhance and improve our recruiting operation,” Mora said in a statement from UConn. “This is a critical position for our program, and I know Preston is the right man for the job.”
