Tyler Barlow has transferred to Blinn Junior College in Texas.
Cam Newton went there during his peculiar NCAA odyssey.

Barlow is blunt in his assessment, but the style of play shouldn't have come as a surprise.

Overall, do folks feel that recruiting has dropped off since Loeffler left the program?  I know Josh was instrumental in helping land the Pards last "great" class of Trist/Hinrichs/JoeyP. Since then we have landed some very good individuals like Nick and Matt, but have also had our share of swing and misses plus defections.

Do we lack a dynamic recruiting coach to complement Fran's X and O plus game day acumen?

From the article:
  "Barlow said Lafayette’s deliberate style of play did not suit his talents and said he feels more comfortable with the up-tempo pace Schumacher coaches."

- - - -

Ironically Lafayette last year ranked 113th last year nationally in pace of play.  Significantly above average.   FOH has never had a year where their pace of play was slow.

Barlow is gone because of academic issues. He had good SATs but apparently did not put in the work needed at college level.

I understand we are dealing with 18 & 19 year olds, but, we seem to have an extremely high transfer rate......out?

Ty....Fran always gets the blame when a player transfers out.

Perhaps because he is the head coach? He gives out the scholarships. I don't know if Lafayette's transfer rate is excessive, I just know three big guys have left in two years. Hoffman, Barlow, Dunkum. We are almost always weak under the basket. No, always.
Between those who left and those who stayed, we aren't investing the scarce assets (scholarships) well.
Also supporting the coach "for now" is hardly an endorsement. It's like the guys on CNBC who are "cautiously optimistic."
Hoffman is playing for UTGRV this year. A hybrid school in the Western Athletic conference.

Blinn College?????

From their website:  "Train for hot jobs.  Careers in welding."

I don't want to be accused of playing the snooty Patriot League card, but "careers in welding?!!"  A reality check is needed.

I'm thinking the same CMan. I guess MetCo didn't offer?
I assume, or hope to assume, that the staff is checking more than a kids SAT score and AAU stats as part of their vetting in offering a trip to The Hill.
This one is a reason to question the process. All may be well, this kid may just not have been ready.

Add Jacob Orender to the list of former Pards.

Three out of five in that class have left. Plus if you give value to star ratings, Lafayette has the lowest star average for recruits of any PL school so we have s recipe for continued losses.
