Make that 5 commits from Illinois, including Prince Walker a guy we offered. WMU now has a total of 6 commits, 5 from Illinois.

This is a good place of recruiting news about Illinois HS recruits. I still wonder what affect waiting to offer some potential Huskies does for our chances of landing them later. WMU, Toledo, BG, Miami etc. seem to have offered many kids from Illinois. when you click on the player, most have not been offered by NIU. Seems like you would like to get your name in the hat so that if the kid commits early, you have a chance.

I think you have to remember, the only accurate list of offers is in the Head Coaches office. Edgy has only what some players tell him. I think our staff knows what thsy are doing and they have all the information at their disposal.

I know they get the info from the player but why would he not include NIU if he had an offer from us? I am not saying give out 500 offer like some programs but any football player in Illinois that is a quality player and quality student should be offered. Got to get your name in early. PJ has done that and has 5 commits from Illinois. We have none.

I think what GCD is saying is that we should trust that the coaches know who is a "quality player" and who we need to spend our time and effort on. I am not really worried that PJ might win another "recruiting championship." I put my trust in steady and consistent over flashy any time.

Something also to keep in mind is that NIU typically gives offers to players who camp with them in DeKalb during the summer. This gives the staff an opportunity to evaluate the players in their system and see who fits best.

Yeah but think of all the potential recruits that fit the NIU system best that the coaches could be missing out on locally and even nationally who do not initially camp in the summer...

Obviously you want the kids who want to be here but sometimes the coaches have to be out there reaching these kids to get them to want to be at NIU. Other MAC schools are coming in knowing that NIU does not recruit heavily and they are able to snag a lot of good prospects who have no interest in NIU because NIU has little to no interest in them.
