2018 Recruiting Thread
« on: July 15, 2017, 09:41:09 AM »
Wisconsin commits by state:

California: 1
Illinois: 1
Indiana: 1
Michigan: 5 (!)
Nebraska: 1
New York: 1
Ohio: 2
Texas: 2
Wisconsin: 5

The UW class is done except for staving off late offers from helmets, which could happen with a few of these kids.

I'm also thinking the "commit" from Indiana may have his offer pulled as it sounds like he is still shopping. :106:

Purdue started June with zero 2018 commits. They now have 15.

Given the makeup of classes, they don't have much more room unless there is additional attrition.

Are we individually copying/pasting posts from the old site? I thought we'd be importing them...through some kind of computer magic (thanks Drew! that sounds like it'd take a long time). Anyway, I thought this one in response to yours on the last site could prompt good discussion from you:

I'm very curious about the next cycle to see whether this was a one-off or a slow colonization. If it's the latter, it's likely that Wisconsin will soon be taking the intermittent kid that Michigan wants too.

I doubt we will be allowed to have the data to import.

Anyway, I don't see UW beating UM for a state kid UM wants, unless they go on serious probation or something. Probably will never happen.

He's right. More than that, most camps have between zero and two college prospects. It's an outrageously dilute recruiting pool.

But that wasn't the recruiting value of satellite camps for Harbaugh. For him, it was much more likely about building strong long term relationships with high school coaches he'd never met. And as a returning college coach, that value was magnified.

And while that kind of long game probably doesn't appeal to most, he also REALLY likes teaching kids who will never play CFB how to get better. So he doesn't experience any tedium. Even if there were zero media coverage, for Harbaugh, those camps are just good living.

I'd be much more inclined to be on board with your take if there weren't billboards and other ads for a "MICHIGAN SUMMER SWARM", for example.

MSU adds 3/4* LB Chase Kline from Ohio, who was also looking at BC, Purdue, Minnesota, and *shocker* Ivies.

The rumors we're this kid was the reason MSU didn't accept the commitment of Brian Asamoah, so it will be interesting to compare their careers.

Kline very well could grow into a DE, while Asamoah is sort of the same player as prior commitment Jeslord Boateng, so that may have factored in.

That he's also a smart recruiter (that he advertises) is pathetic proof that "he doesn't also enjoy teaching kids who will never play college football." It can be (and probably is) both ways.

Meanwhile, the disproportionate time (relative to others) and candor he spends with those kids who'll never play CFB, supports my position** about as much as an outsider's opinion can be supported on such things. The intense advertising of Michigan doesn't disprove that; it just gives you wiggle room that an ulterior motive also exists. But getting double bang for one's buck (recruiting payoff plus fun) is plain good decision making.




**(that Harbaugh thinks teaching football is good living, no matter who is being taught)

Not exactly "recruiting", but Iowa is raiding the Mountain West for graduate transfers.  They already got James Butler from Nevada at RB (while not a 'need' position per se, he'd complement Akrum Wadley nicely), and are about to nab Matt Quarrells from UNM at WR (easily one of UI's biggest need positions - the fact that he brings FBS experience with him is a huge plus).

Why would a WR go play in Davie's system anyway?

The same reason why a RB would play in Leach's system I suppose.

Leach put RBs into the NFL.  At least Baron Batch comes to mind.
