Could someone please send directions to Akron for all of these players signing on to the team with no contact information for the coaches?

 

Whoever decides to send the kids directions to Akron, please make sure you make the directions to the one in Ohio.

I think you just ruined any chance of Clark "Jack Wagon" Griswold taking over the presidency of the John Ward fan club.

Humor me please. How do JUCO and transfer players get contact info but not HS players?

This years already pretty picked over at the high school level and Akron needs players that can help them immediately. I'd expect 80% of this years recruits to be transfers and juco players.

Good call.  Also, with the transfer portal and the extra year of eligibility for many players created by the NCAA in response the Covid, HS players are getting pushed down in farther in the process as there's less and less roster room.  In addition, teams on the level UA recruits often have to wait for the recruiting processes of the "better" programs to flush out as kids UA may be chasing are waiting to see what may open at a P5 of more prestigious G5 when offers are accepted or rejected by higher level recruits.

 

Best Regards,

Yes, that CB we got from WVU is a prime example. He played a decent amount as a true freshman, but didn't see the field much the past 2 years. He comes to Akron and we get 2 years of eligibility out of him. I'm assuming he'll start both years. Tying up scholarships on redshirts doesn't make as much sense now that you can bring in transfers that can play day 1.

Get the best ready to play right now players via portal, Juco or high school.  Win now & you can get better quality high school players for the future with a few needed parts out of portal Juco to sustain success

Bingo. Long term"projects" should be viewed as recruiting failures moving forward. 

 

If there is a scholarship allotment of between 70 and 75, that's enough to field a team in 2022.  College football teams should have three types of scholarship players:

1. Starters

2. Players who can play when needed. 

3. Guys with a foot out the door. 

 

Heck, take the difference in scholarships between 85 and the actual number, cut them up and give partial scholarships to scout team players.

I don't think there are any partial scholarships in FBS.

You can NOT issue partial scholarships in FBS.
