    Default General Question- Talking Recruits?

    With Hudl now, no kids really slip through the cracks. Idk how involved the board is in watching high school besides Maryville high. Would anyone be interested in talking prospects. I think with Social media kids are pretty blatant with where they’ve been offered or visiting. Maybe a watch list for mo,ks,ok,neb, kids?

    Seriously, I Twitter stalk a little, but have only seen people who were offered so far. No verbal yet.

    Hudl will definitely get a kid noticed, but its the entire game film that gets him an invite.

    Try some of the high school sites for Rivals. Ones like IowaPreps.com have lists of what player is talking to whatever school.

    Most definitely, recruiting coaches want to know how he acts under adversity.

    They watch few to zero full games now a days. Maybe if they are really intrigued, but a 3-5 minute highligh will get them an invite to almost anywhere. I don’t think even NW has the resources to watch full hs games. Season ends have to narrow down recruiting lists, set priorities of offers, get on the road to visit hs, mid semester juco visits. Maybe, maybe a blue chip qb they watch the whole game. But for the most part they just look in another kids highlight to see if the kid jumps off the screen or is a bum

    Another tool for recruiting seems to be missing in this discussion. And that would be team camps. How many times do you hear from D2 recruits the following: " I have been to their Team Camps and the coaches like my skill sets." Hudl makes it easy for a player to get video out there with the hope that someone looking will see it. There is no need to watch full videos. But if you can get team camps going. You have a tool to see how an individual handles himself in game situations And what leadership skills the player displays.

    Not saying they watch full games, but in 5 min., they can tell if he takes plays off or gives it all every play. Hudl is nice but doesn't tell the full story.

    I saw one QB that pitt offered during their team camp before his SR year. He now has D1 offers, though.

    I was chatting with Catz, Tax, and BearcatDude about how the early signing period seems to be pushing a lot of the recruits looking at lower level schools already committing, too. Maybe won't be as many weekend visits and announcements in January now. I would think that if this trend continues that the divisions with playoffs through December MIGHT be at a disadvantage recruiting? Time shall tell...

    Do you mean the kids are committing to 1aa’s before looking at the D2’s?

    I like the trickle down the early signing will have. D1 and fcs schools will have rosters set up sooner, kids holding out will end up visiting more schools And finding a fit. Maybe you can better plan offers if you know what a kid has outside of MIAA? Idk that’s just stuff off the top of my head.

    I’ve always hated the last minute walk on offer the most. So many kids that would be good d2 players going to Nebraska or Kstate and end up with little or no playing time. I get chase the dream, but damn
