Not sure if this has ever been posted but it’s worth sharing. Frost quote while at UCF on recruiting
“Long-term, I don’t want to recruit a lot of guys here who are going to be prima-donnas and wait until the last day to put four or five hats on a table and keep teams hostage to wait and see what they’re going to do. I want kids who want to be at UCF, not kids that want to be recruited."
“So much has come of this because of websites and TV coverage. In my experience, the kids that fall in love with recruiting and do those things, they have a harder time adjusting to college football and college life (as opposed to) kids that make their decision and immediately think about how to make themselves great college football players. Recruiting is fun for everybody, but in the long run, you’re better off getting the kids more about business and ready to get to work.”
“For a year or two as they're getting recruited, these young men have everybody from Rivals to Scout to ESPN to local media to coaches telling them how great they are," he said. "One of my first pieces of advice to recruits is, don’t buy into that, because the minute you get to campus, nobody’s going to be telling you that anymore. The kids who fall in love with that process and start believing the hype about themselves too much, it’s a tougher transition for them to college football.”
