Oregon State’s Jonathan Smith just wrapped up his first recruiting cycle as a head coach, which means a ton of time on the phone and on the road and in living rooms visiting with the Beavers top targets.

Those in-home visits almost always involve some food, and Smith shared a little advice for coaches out there taking their in-home visits that he learned the hard way this off season.

Before we get to his video, it’s worth noting that last year Kansas head coach David Beaty shared a story about an assistant of his that chowed down on some shrimp even though he was allergic to shellfish and had to be rushed to the hospital immediately after because his throat was swelling shut.

Take a look at what Smith has to say in the clip.
