      Just taking a look to see what young talent might be out there that can both recruit and develop talent:

      Adam Breneman, Graduate Assistant, Arizona State (25): A former top 50 recruit and an All-American tight end for UMass, Breneman has quickly transitioned to the coaching ranks following his playing career. Breneman joined Arizona State’s staff this offseason, and he’s established himself as a key piece for the Sun Devil operation. Breneman has been a standout recruiter also coaches the team’s tight ends. Said head coach Herm Edwards of Breneman: “We don’t want to lose him now.”

      Kevin Cummings, San Jose State, Wide Receivers Coach (29): Few position groups have seen more growth over the last few seasons than San Jose State’s wide receivers. The Spartans ranked 87th nationally in passing yards per game in 2017 when Cummings took over the position group. Last year, San Jose State finished fourth nationally with a pair of all-conference wide receivers helping to lead the way. That group included Tre Walker, who caught 79 passes for 1,161 yards. He’s a potential draft pick in 2021.

      Kenny Guiton, Colorado State, Wide Receivers Coach (29): Guiton has already moved across the coaching map despite being only 29 years of age. He spent two seasons at Houston (2017-18), where he coached all-AAC wide receivers Marquez Stevenson and Steven Dunbar. Last year, he had a pair of All-Conference USA honorable mention honorees (Adrian Hardy, Malik Stanley) as the wide receiver coach for a Louisiana Tech team that finished with 10 wins for the first time in decades. Now, the former Ohio State quarterback has joined Steve Addazio at Colorado State.

      Nathan Scheelhaase, Iowa State, Wide Receivers (29): No promotion here, but we wanted to highlight Scheelhaase a final time before he falls out of the 30-and-under age bracket. Scheelhasse has consistently emerged as an impact recruiter, landing All-American Bowl players like Breece Hall and Daniel Jackson. During his first year as wide receivers coach, Scheelhaase helped mentor All-Big 12 selection Deshaunte Jones. The year prior, he coached All-American running back David Montgomery. A former four-year starting QB at Illinois, don’t be surprised if you start to hear Scheelhaase emerge as a coordinator candidate in the coming years.

      With the Nacua news expect them to aggressively pursue the portal for another WR using the initial freed up by Veltray. Shah was instrumental in landing Cope so I would imagine he will lead on this with the similar skill set profile but this will be an all hands on deck approach. A WR coach hire will be important but not as much as you might think. Multiple guys involved in recruiting areas as much as positions these days. As an example, having Ludwig explain your role in the offense carries a lot more weight than a position coach might.

        Sounds like they need to send Shah to Tommy Bush’s place. 🙂
