No surprise at all. Both kids had 1 and 3 offers respectively. This is 1 reason that early offers can be beneficial. Marcus Haynes had NIU listed as an interest, but the feeling may not have been mutual this early. There may be questions about PJ's coaching, but he is one of the top recruiters in the country.
According to the recruiting services, which haven't rated NIU in the top half of the MAC (OK a few 6 ranks) in 10 years until 2015's 4th. I think we can question their accuracy at the MAC level.

247Sports(NIU Signing Class MAC Rank):
'07-7
'08-12
'09-9
'10-8
'11-6
'12-9
'13-4
'14-4
'15-3
'16-10

247 is a composite ranking that uses the major services. Don't know which
is best.

Yet another PJ thread 03-confused

Not at all. Its a concern that many other schools in our own conference (WMU, CMU, Toledo, Miami, etc) have been coming to Illinois and grabbing many recruits that NIU doesn't even really put much effort into.

It looks like we have jump started the offers this year with guys in Florida but the coaching staff needs to be looking at players in our home region as well.
Maybe our coaches should get creative and put some effort into going after the local players...

Rivals has us @ #5 for 2016, while 247 has us at #10! Part of the reason for 247 lower ratings/ranking is that we do not split our scholarship players from our preferred walk- ons. They are considered all in the same class. Therefore some rank our walk -ons at a minimum ranking, while others may leave them unranked entirely! We have done this as long as I can remember. Just FYI.

My point is that a lot of us who have been around awhile don't pay much attention to rankings at the MAC level. There is not much effort going into player evaluations. NIU has won a lot of titles with low rated classes.

I always thought that if you can get at least 8 or 9 good players that fit your Offensive and Defensive schemes every Signing Class you're ok.
I think NIU has also done a nice job developing their players.
