2017 Football Recruiting

First verbal commitment for the class of 2017:

Otis Thrasher CB/S 6-3 175 Luella HS  GA

http://www.hudl.com/athlete/2934634/otis-thrasher

Otis is a HS senior, tweets a 2017 commitment, so presumably he will go the prep school route as did our 2016 Dmitry Smith. HS coach confirms commitment, does not mention class year.

Welcome Otis!

2017 around the league:

Darrington attended Junior Day at Rutgers and visited Syracuse, where he may attend a camp. He says he's open to all offers.
McCloskey is also a great BB player but appears to be set on football. The Inquirer says he is being recruited by Northwestern, Penn State (his father played there), BC and Duke.

Assume that's Mike McCloskey who was TE on the PSU 1982 Natl Championship team.
bethlehempard

Darrington reports offers from Holy Cross, Lafayette, Harvard and Yale. He's a young man in a hurry who's getting attention from the big guys now.
bethlehempard

Germantown  Academy's Kyle McCloskey, a Penn State legacy (his father, Mike, was a tight end and his sister, Megan, is on the track team), is worth watching.
Yes on the connection.

His sistet Kiernan is a F on the Lehigh WBB team.

I understand we are interested in Joe Young from Bethlehem Freedom.  He plays QB for Freedom, but I believe we are interested in him as an "athlete" just like Jordan and Spinger form last year.

He is 6'3" and about 200 pounds, and a very good athlete.  I see no mention of offers thus far, but wouldn't surprise me if we hear something from him in the future.

Didn't he get injured last year and miss a few games?

I believe he did.  I am no insider, and this is hearsay, but I believe there is strong mutual interest.

Young suffered a season-ending hip injury in 2014 and last year missed time with a leg injury. These weren't chronic issues.

The trend continues. Smile  Very few H2Hs among PL offers.  We only have 1 in Barr. As in the last couple of years,PL is going H2H with Navy and Army more often than vs ourselves.

Yeah, good call, rich. Does seem to be the case.

63 has Gate with 3 early commits.

Coach Link has answered our "needs" question for 2017 via twitter -
"offensive skill, LB, DL."
RichH

Cross has 1 also. No reliable ones yet for LU. For us,assts are out to HS visits around the country as I imagine all the staffs are.  My love/ hate relationship with twitter is alive and well Smile

Sorry about the weather Andy. We out off going down til mid June hoping to miss the brunt of rainy season.
Certainly a new recruiting landscape. Cross up over 60 offers. Common fact is most PL offers are to kids holding FBS offers.  Longshot offers hoping to get lucky a couple of times?

Rich, actually we had an awesome week of weather, just the trop storm on last day which moved out quickly and didn't affect our flight home, thankfully. Passe-A-Grille, St. Pete Beach.  Awesome, already checking bye week dates for Fall trip back. Always sketchy with the storms, of course. Air peaked at 95, water 85.  Acquaintance said they had 20-something straight days of rain last July.

Slew of offers,  get them out and hope kids come to the camps, I guess.
RichH

Smile St.Pete is marvelous. We lived abit north in Tarpon Springs in the 90s. We're now East coasters in Stuart.
Good point on using offers to lure recruits to camps. Didn't occur to me and it should have Smile Makes sense. Camp tweets have started. Interesting to see if offers impact on attendance.

Brian McGlaughlin has Colgate in FCS Top 5 recruiting classes so far:

http://herosports.com/news/ncaa-f...-the-recruiting-charts-for-2017#2 scroll down

Hope he can find something good to say about us before it's all over.

Colgate commit Blane Briggs -  "I love Coach Hunt, he came all the way down to South Florida to watch me practice and he was there all three hours evaluating me so that just showed me he really does care about what kind of kids he's recruiting and he just wants the best for his program."

Colgate going out and grabbing talent.
RichH

I like Brian's work. He actually goes out and gets his own story. Guessing he'll get around to all of us Smile.
He's not exaggerating on Gate's class so far. Very impressive.
Andy

Hero Sports ranks Gate as the top recruiting class at this point; however, they don't mention offers or rankings.   Based on the early nature, we can safely assume these are full ride offers, Twyman is the only one actually claiming full ride on twitter as far as I can tell. A closer look:

Twyman - RB only offer per rivals, 247 Sports adds a Bucknell offer

Badovinac - OL only offer per rivals and scout

Breneman - QB (5'11.5") not listed by rivals, Army, Cornell per 247

Briggs - LB (5' 10") not listed by rivals, only offer per 247

Diehl - OL only offer per rivals and 247

Interesting (to me anyway) .  They've had great success finding players that fit their system esp QB and OL.  So, despite the lack of offers and ratings (none), Gate fans have to trust their staff's evaluations.
RichH

Dont rely much on *s. Too hit or miss at our level.
Twyman had an O from LU. FBS early iffers not much different than ours. Not as much wght as Os during sr season and postseason. This early I have been looking to visits camp invites and coaches' HS visits. All had a lot of activity particularly the QB.
Top 5. No but worthy of a nod.
Should note that tracking camp invites and visits pretty hit or miss also. Must have really been bored that day Smile

Andy, after all the recruiting is done for this season, after you have listed everyone you can find, what percentage of those you had on your list actually sign with Lafayette?
RichH

Prior years'stats wontvbe veryvrelevant given the surge to Jr offers. Lists come from the recruiting services,tweets noting offers,visits and camps,local paper HS sports articles and regional recruiting services. More than a few of the names signify an interest of the prospect in a school not that the coaches reciprocate.
Last year LU had a little over 200 names. We signed approx 10%.(The caveat is that PL roster and schollie caps limit each year to varying degrees ie more may have signed but for the caps)
RichH

Smile oops not done yet.
% of offers accepted a more telling stat.. For us prior years info not totally reliable as LU did nothing to publish offers and not everyone on twitter SmileSmile. Now LU tweets offers immediately. .Educated guess on % was about 35-45% of published offers. Now? Certainly much lower.

Rich, LU staff tweets their offers?
RichH

Technically no. All tweets are by recruits using Lehigh formats and photos Unanswered is about offers to kids not on twitter. They likely exist Smile Dont know.. Hence I still scan our old sources periodically.

Yeah, didn't think staffs naming offered players would be allowed. Of course, we get staff's commitment recognition tweets like Hunt's "win" and others "we just got better" stuff.

Toledo has a dynamic, young head coach, and have experienced quite a bit of success recently.  I wonder how much recruiting Frank is doing these days.

We have no commitments from class of 2017 grads at this point. We are not alone; others in the PL have none,or 1 or 2.  So, dozens if not hundreds of kids are sitting on quarter million dollar offers, presumably waiting for that offer from a "higher level" of competition.  Amazes me.
