Recognized as the country's leading expert on college football recruiting and high school talent, Tom Lemming joined CBS Sports Network in 2005 and serves as host of MAXPREPS LEMMING REPORT, the only national weekly high school football recruiting show. His analysis can also be found on CBSSports.com and MaxPreps.com. Lemming logs approximately 55,000 miles each year visiting the top recruits in the country. He is also the editor of Prep Football Report, considered to be the "Bible of the football recruiting industry," and annually selects the team for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
Lemming has been a recruiting analyst for nearly 30 years. His analysis and rankings of the country's leading high school football players are regularly featured in national publications, including USA Today and have led him to be known as the “Godfather of Recruiting.” Lemming was featured in Michael Lewis's critically acclaimed book, The Blind Side, and scouts hundreds of high school athletes in order to be prepared for February's annual national signing day. He was also profiled in the book Football's Second Season, which followed Lemming across the country to chronicle his journey as a recruiting analyst.
