AUDIO: Coach Pete Lembo Talks Recruiting

I was at the signing day banquet Wednesday and recorded Coach Pete Lembo’s speech. Click on the link below to listen to his speech. I edited out the first three minutes as Lembo complimented his staff. We all know they worked hard. Lembo went into detail of the process his staff goes through when it comes to recruiting in his speech.

Lembo emphasized the difference having a full year made for his staff and how they already have a jump on next year.

As for the class itself Lembo touted the added depth at offensive line, the tall wide receivers, and the replacements to fill the holes in the secondary brought through graduation. He also added how proud he is to bring in local quarterback Ozzie Mann, a Delta High School recruit.

Lembo answered some questions at the end of the banquet that is included around the 10-minute mark of the audio file. He answered why Ball State did not recruit a running back and his philosophy on playing freshmen. We will go into more detail of the 2012 class in the coming weeks at OTP.
