"We'll have mail communication with recruits three times a week - very, very personalized, unique mail communication," Cortis said. "That is probably totally old-school, but I believe in the power of a hand-written note. I think that it's proven successful for us. That will always be a pillar of the way we recruit, just constant personal communication."
Although e-mail might be a more prodigious means of communication in this day and age, snail mail has proven a very effective means of bringing in top recruits as coach Mikki Denney Wright and Cortis landed one of the highest-ranked classes in school history two years ago.
