As we continue our recruiting advice series, college coaches from throughout New England share what they look for in outside backs.
Rather than providing our own thoughts, the below eight coaches offered their respective takes.
The central theme relates to on-ball ability and athletic range, but there's far more to being an outside back than those two imperatives. The position, all coaches stressed, is one that's continually evolving and has incredible demands in the attacking third and defensively.
There are three more sections of this recruiting advice series, which will be published in the coming days. They're all designed as a resource for aspiring student-athletes who seek a home at the next level.
