New coach Huesman feels good about recruiting
Russ Huesman was named Richmond’s football coach on Dec. 14 and, despite joining the program’s recruiting action in progress, he believes the Spiders are in good shape with the class that will sign Feb. 1.
Through this condensed recruiting cycle for Huesman, he didn’t assign areas for assistants, which would typically be the case for a coach and staff together for some time. The Spiders this winter are more position-specific, meaning a coach who will eventually be assigned to Tidewater may be recruiting players from the Atlanta area who fit particular UR needs.
“Right now, we’re recruiting people and not areas,” said Huesman.
