When are we going to start seeing more rankings on some of these 2018 guys? Seems like only a handful are ranked at this point

Good question. I'm excited to see where some guys we have strong links to will be. Thinking of Little Farniok and Roberts in particular.

I was just going to post this. Didn't see a profile for him. Dual threat quarterback rated .85. Doesn't exactly seem to fit what we'd want/need right now. Dwill retweeted so maybe he projects as a DB?

It's still early in the recruiting season Mav. I wonder if they keep this momentum going or if it falters after they start losing some games. They get a top 30 class in this cycle unless some of these boys of theirs decide to decommit.

I'm trying to figure out why a bunch of 3 and 4 stars from Louisiana are all going to Kansas? I'd be shocked if they hold on to many of those guys.

KU just hired a very well respected New Orleans high school coach.

New Orleans HS coaches are also debating on boycotting LSU bc of how one of their coaches was handled when he went to LSU to coach. Coach O needs to go and mend those relationships or he will be thin ice.

Not sure I follow this:

Not sure we are planning to take 2 QB's. If Lee has an amazing season is the only way we lose a scholarship QB. (Transfer could happen, but seems early for any of that business)

Mckee would be going on a Mormon trip. So it would be like he's a 2020 recruit if you think about it. He's just so talented we'd take him regardless. Yankoff would be the featured QB of this class.

I think Callahan has a good point.

 

Seems like the original thought - when Riley was hired - was to do some regional recruiting. But the way Callahan talks, they really aren't doing any of that and just recruiting their position.

 

The good side of that is recruits are always dealing with their prospective position coach.

 

The down side is coaches are left to scour the entire nation for guys they want to recruit. You lose out on building relationships with HS coaches in a certain area who might have recruits at different positions during different years. Especially schools in the 500-mile radius that you could develop a relationship with over the years.

 

I agree with Callahan that a somewhat more balanced approach would probably help in the long run. Maybe do some more area recruiting to get started then when you find a guy to go after turn him over to his position coach.

I think you can blend that philosophy.. Have guys recruit nationwide, but you could assign everyone a region within the 500 mile radius to look for gems and develop the relationships with kids and coaches.

I didn't read it Mav, any other tidbits from the article? I do not subscribe to Scout, I just posted it for people to see and read it if they could.

Okay so I have a question, and perhaps it is naïve, but I'm asking anyhoo...

 

A lot of these kids in Louisiana grow up dreaming of playing for LSU. I get that high school coaches can ban LSU's coaches from school grounds, but that's it.

 

These players are still free to meet with LSU coaches in their home, at a park, at a camp, etc, right?

 

If high school coaches in Louisiana "boycott" LSU, what practical effect would that have on LSU's recruiting? I tend to think it would have almost zero effect, but :dunno

Kansas gets another commit and is now up to the #4 class in the country.

Out of curiosity, which site are you seeing that #4 recruiting ranking for Kansas? I checked rivals and 247. So maybe they were 4th and dropped as other schools gained more commits?

 

(And are you sure you didn't accidently link to their BB class?) :lol:

They were 4th when it was posted but had a 4 star and a 3 star decommit and other schools jumped them.
