2018 Football Recruiting

Early signing period is a reality. Wow!:

http://www.sbnation.com/college-f...aa-early-signing-period-date-2017
RichH

I wonder how NSD mania in Feb will be now. New SD period only 72 hrs. Should be fun. Do PL schools have 2 media days for announcements?
Most of PL's verbals were in well before the end of Dec.
Marooner

A coach (not at Lafayette, but similar level) once told me that he hates early recruiting because "every player thinks Nick Saban is about to call." A December signing period could alleviate some of that and, by the time we get to the traditional February signing day, high school players will have a more realistic picture of what their options are.

On the other hand, depending on how many bigger schools embrace the December signing period, the PL and similar conferences might see a decrease in the number of "stretch" recruits they get... that is, guys who could probably contribute at a slightly higher level but land in our league.
SixtyEighter

What prevents de-committing and poaching in the interim period ?
RichH

Well the NLI signed in Dec same as that signed in Feb. Neither actually legally enfofceable but as a practical matter it does work to severely limit other choices that the kid might have if he doesnt get a release from that school.

This might be an oversimplified (or incomplete) definition, but in the context of your question, basically the NLI is like being drafted by that team. You can refuse to play after you sign, but you also can't play anywhere else without that team's permission for a certain period of time (typically one season unless it's a special circumstance like another team in the same conference).

Won't be offended if those with more insight want to add/correct... that's just the explanation that has always worked for me.
RichH

Not quite that cut and dried but similar to the situation for a decommit. May be true as to other conference teams. Usually the school will release the kid figuring why waste a spot on a recruit who wants to go elsewhere.
Andy

Yeah, S/A would have to seek a release or take a one year hold and eligibility loss. An admissions denial frees you up, might be more of an issue now with everything moved up.

Coaches on the road. Saw an offer by Coach Luke. Only 43 behind Holy Cross! Shocked  Doesn't worry me with JG in charge, there is a plan.  We are even in the win column though.

Offer:

Will Anderson C 6-2 280 Delbarton  others inc. FBS

As usual the National Communists Against Athletes continues to kow-tow to the power programs and run rampant over the student athletes it pretends to protect.

I am against the ES period, really for 3 reasons.  First, I believe it will lead to power programs making even more verbal offers, but then failing to provide an early NLI to kids it knows it doesn't want.   They will do this to prevent the athletes from small programs or who may not have been noticed by Rivals etc from slipping through the cracks and signing with a smaller school.  So the offer a kid they want to walk on.   Tell the kid he will get an NLI for the Feb date.   Then tell him they want him to walk on....the imfamous "Preferred Walk On".   Second, it will lead to schools gaming the system, NLI a kid who has academic issues and know you can cut him lose "for not gaining admissions" later.   Third schools will delay firing coaches until after the early NLI period, hoping to snag a couple commits.

The one benefit is allowing Officials in Apr-Jun of Junior year.   Of course I think it is stupid the kids are limited to 5 officials.  This made sense 30 years ago when a non athlete would apply to 3-5 schools.  Now non athletes apply to a dozen schools.   Why not give the kids at least 7, especially since the period is longer now.

As usual, they will never address the absurdity of making any verbal offers prior to a kids Junior year.

But I am sure the NCAA will continue to make sure its athletes are its primary concern

 There is a very important reason why the NCAA limits official visits.
And that is because under NCAA rules, the cost of bearing an official visit is at the expense of the host institution.  Depending on the size of the program, especially in football, (in other sports as well),the expenses can be significant to the school and program.   That's the reason for limiting 'official' visits. That doesn't stop any recruit from taking an unofficial visit where he, or she bears the cost.  And by the way, schools and coaches notice these visit (s).

Imho, you find out a lot about a school when you visit on your own terms.

My kid took an unofficial visit to Lafayette in the summer as a rising senior, was offered in November and signed his NLI in February of his senior year.

Not sure I understand the cost argument.   You are still only allowed one per school.   so no one institution would be burdened by more cost.  And I would argue, the NCAA has more than enough money to subsidize programs for paying for these official visits.  Additionally it unfairly limits lower income kids from visiting schools further away

  I didn't say it was fair, but cost is a factor in the overall recruiting budget on visits.

 But with unofficial visits, a kid can visit one school multiple times.

Imho,bathe system makes programs focus upon kids whom they are serious about recruiting, since the school (program) is paying for the official visits.

I had inserted a beautiful pic of campus here from LC website in my original post. Apparently this didn't sit well with someone for some reason. The pic has been made private. Wouldn't want an alum using it to show off the campus to prospective footballers. Let's see what they do with this one, apparently snapped when field was being stripped for new turf:

 Rich, you guys are recruiting an outstanding lb from Bridgewater-Raritan HS in NJ.   I've observed Justin Bryant, a Mike lb play on many occasions, including twice in the State Group 5 final at Met Life stadium.  Very good motor, sure tackler, and plays very well in space, defending the pass.   The kid is constantly around the football.  Is also an outstanding student in the classroom....

 He was at LU recently on a visit.  And the kicker about this is Lafayette is well aware of Bryant, and it will hurt if he's playing against us next year.  He is one of the top ten lbs in New Jersey right now.

If you guys get him, your lucky, because he can play on the field right now.
RichH

Bryant is a very talented OLB . Ideal type for the 4-2. Very athletic and fast enuf. Ive watched a lot of film on him dont know PF whether we can get him. He is getting a lot of interest now. He has been on campus for his official and a couple if unofficials and for camp. Fingers crossed Smile.
With camp season in full swing expect well see you a lot more activity. Good way to get a feel for who staffs are interested in and where prospects are looking. Most kids try to do at least 3 or 4.camps.

Right on, brother. We had our lists of sites to be checked several times a day. Labor intensive, but a find was gratifying. Strangely appealing. I think I'll log on to The Beaver County Times just for old times sake.  Wink  

Signing Day(s) - 12/20, 2/7

He plays inside At BRHS but has size.  You guys have a lot of schools competing for him, including Princeton.  And quite frankly, he could go FBS as well.  Just attended Villanova camp
Andy

We are approaching our 10th found offer. HC is over 100.

Lehigh's 3rd commit is a lineman from Parsippany(John Burk). Not sure who's recruiting north Jersey for us now after Luke's departure.

It appears our staff is taking the "must see them live" approach to offers. A pair of one day camps coming up this Fri and Sat.

Good to see Coach Phil landing at Lock Haven. Always made time to speak with me and my fam. Good guy.

Coen does much the same. Vast majority of offers and all commits are camp guys or have been on campus. For some reason I dont think Gilmore has a similar scheme Smile.

Thanks, rich. Yeah, Parsippany vs Parsippany Hills.

Hoping for a good turnout today and tomorrow.
PardDad71

I don't tend to get overly worried about the number of offers.   I would like to get a commit or two, but it is early.  

Maybe Rich can confirm, I didn't think LU had any commits before November last year, but that might be fake news.  Shocked

LU had 2 verbals that I recall . One flipped later. There may have been another but I will have to look it up when I get home.

We're talking about all these recruits for 23018, and just today, I think I saw on Twitter that Lehigh has added four players to this year's freshman group. Latecomers, for sure.
PardDad71

wow, if that's true I would suspect that is a major difference between us and them.   somehow I don't think admissions would be quite as friendly admitting someone at this point in the process, but maybe I am just overly critical
RichH

Not really SIDELINER . They are all recruited WOs. Could not be added to roster until admitted to LU. They actually were included in our verbals and later in May added to roster. Why announcement now? Dont know.

Jack Fris,  6-5 300, visited us and Lehigh back in April. Lehigh offered that weekend, we didn't. Fris is Lehigh's 7th commitment. He claimed over 10 offers including AFA, Army, Bowling Green.

Lehigh has almost as many commits as we have offers made. Interesting tactics this year.  Last year's class, esp the finish by the new staff, gives cause for high hopes.

Just seems like the response to the new early signing date by other PL staffs has been lots of early offers, lots. We are apparently taking a different tack. Maybe Coach JG and Coach Nudel have a better way. We'll see. Keeping the faith while checking out the competition. (HC is over the 100 mark on offers and yet no commits).

Lehigh's push seems to be on OL this year. Prob not top priority for us numbers wise (DL, WR?) although we will surely see at least a couple.
RichH

Yup, we lose3 starters. After that not much real rgent priority. Suppose LB , then best abailable regardless of position.
What size class for Pards in 18?
We graduate a lot of money but only 16 seniors.

Yup, we lose3 starters. After that not much real rgent priority. Suppose LB , then best abailable regardless of position.
What size class for Pards in 18?
We graduate a lot of money but only 16 seniors.


We've got 22 seniors, rich. Maybe only 1 of whom is redshirt eligible (Mike Root). We will lose 3 quality DL.

Thanks Andy. Numbers leave unclear how much money our senior classes free up for 18 class.

Very Happy  Very Happy  Glad to be back on the board after an extended absence! I will try to keep you arrest of Gate activities.

In football we just promoted our db coach Stan Dakosty to Associate Head coach.  We have over 50 offers out but are not in a hurry this year as we are stocked with medical red shirts which reduces our schoolies for this year.

Our big question mark is QB as we graduated Melville.  Cant wait to see who ends up with the job.

Andy, I have moved to the west coast so very unlikely I meet you under the goal posts at the Kirby end of the field. Hopefully your new guy can right your ship so you are back in the race full force.

CR!  Yeah I know you said you wanted to glide down over Mulholland. Crazy stuff a NYer moving to the left coast.   Hope all is well with the grandchild. Glad you're back on the board!  Before Zeus, you were the closest thing to an insider that we had here re LC recruiting. And a Gate guy!

Yes, pretty psyched about THE NEW ERA!

Andy,
Good to hookup.  New moderator made it possible. The new era is something to anticipate.  I can't wait for the season to start-or really camp to see which rookies can make a difference.  I am sure u feel the same way.  Meanwhile, a Happy Fourth!

Ah, yes, an interesting dimension added there, rich. No offer from LU at this point.

Keeping an eye on the competition, one has to notice what's going on at Fordham:

OL commits:

Anthony Marinelli 6-4 295 over offers from Army, AF, Bowling Green,Buffalo, UNH, JMU, Delaware, W&M, Villanova.

Offered by FU on 6/5

http://247sports.com/Recruitment/...y-Marinelli95514/RecruitInterests

Austin Glazier  6-6 295 over offers from Ball St., Bowling Green, YSU, others

Fordham offer made 4/2

https://n.rivals.com/content/prospects/2018/austin-glazier-182232

Philip Saleh 6-4 275 over offers from Ball State, EIU, WIU others.

FU offered on 5/24

So, FU beating out FBS. Fair to mention in comparison to what JG is trying to do - not an Ivy offer in the bunch.
Andy

Re 15) Joe Grundhoffer - His HS coach confirms via twitter that Joe has been offered a full ride. Impressive that Joe was named his conference POY in bball as a jr.  TE is an obvious position of need numbers wise for us.
RichH

Agree saw his tweet. TE pretty full for LU both at blocking TE and receiving. Receiving Puhl , an A-S Pa is at #2. Joe looks very good fast and athletic.

Honestly, guys, I checked westernpafootball as late as yesterday and could swear there was no offer from us listed.  Today:

That's 5 FBS offers!

Awesome.  Coach Garrett is a smart man and knows the value of an excellent QB, especially in this league where talent at other positions is generally pretty similar across the board.

I know we have a ton of QB's on the roster, but I think 3 and possibly 4 are full ride kids, so we have room to add one or two in this class

Local piece on Troy's commitment:

Troy's Player preview prior to jr season:

http://www.westernpafootball.net/...sher-pittsburgh-central-catholic/

Troy was named 1st team all state 6A. One of 2 juniors so designated. The other is a Notre Dame commit.

An incredible contrast in recruiting philosophy at the position, former staff vs new.

Impressive.  Scholarships finally paying off?  Or, Garrett working his magic?

I think it's safe to say we shouldn't offer another QB for 3 or 4 years!  Now let's sign some linemen and WR's of this caliber!

Coach Nudel suggesting this morning on twitter that another verbal is imminent. Apparently an OL. Let's go!
Andy

Coach Hinds indicates 2 if not 3 more commitments. Looking for a few mins then have to go....
gopards

Andy, while he has not tweeted a commitment i might know who one of the two DL are commits. I have not been able to figure out the other DL commit or the OL commit.

Coach Hinds says "DelCO" which fits Hurlbrink, if not Shaeffer.

And Troy just began following Broughton and Hildebrand. Crumbs.....
gopards

I think it is Sheaffer who goes to wood which is in Hinds recruiting area and he just followed some of our coaches,players,and commits. He also just followed two accounts that make commitment edits
gopards

Billy Shaeffer just tweeted his commitment.
Andy

Thanks, gp. Shaeffer is another with a nice group of offers including 2 FBS:

DE/TE Billy Shaeffer, Archbishop Wood, 6-3 220

Army, Bucknell, Holy Cross, Lafayette, Maine, Stony Brook and Toledo

per easternpafootball.com

Very active player; quick; nose for the ball. Glad he's with us!

Coach Thompson‏ - Can't help but be excited when you hear the vision @CoachJMGarrett has for @LafColFootball! Going to be special! #OnTheHunt

Based on tweets from the staff, 2 (?)verbally committed remain unnamed.

One apparently a DL from DelCo and maybe an OL.

Local media indicates that when QB Brevin White of California committed to Princeton, that helped sway Fisher to Lafayette. White had multiple BCS offers.

Love the backstories! Last QB we had involved with Princeton was Maurer (3 rings!), I guess. IIRC we got him more over financial matters, Marquis Scholarship over then un-enhanced Ivy aid.  Troy is a great recruit for us, the kind we need to find; highly skilled, values academics but for whom football is still extremely important.  Now we need him to take a leadersip role in the class recruitment, as Major did last year.  Go Pards!

17) Colin Hurlbrink announced his commitment last night.

DL help - an area of need with 3 seniors graduating. Like Shaeffer, another guy with exceptional mobility,  6-3 250.

Based on tweets by the staff I believe we're waiting on one commitment declaration. Hard to say for sure.
