The 45-day spring evaluation period has become one of the most crucial tools for college coaches and scouts. With most of the top programs running summer camps, the spring season allows teams to extend invitations for prospects to take an unofficial visit during the summer.

Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham knows the value of getting out on the road in April and May.

"I think the spring evaluation period is really important because you try to see some sophomores and juniors in the winter, but now you have a chance to focused on this class," Grantham said. "The spring allows you to evaluate guys and do your due diligence as far as making sure what you see at the schools matches what you see on tape so you are targeting the right players for your system."
