Najarian stressed that Fleck is an excellent recruiter, but also can deliver on the field too. He has called some of Western Michigan's games for ESPN the last four years. In other words, he got a close look at Fleck, and has had time to interact with him.

KSTP's Darren Wolfson sat down with Najarian on Monday to gain insight about Fleck.
