RE: football recruiting
It's the dead period through Jan 11th. Expect big weekends to host HS recruits to be weekends of Jan 14, 21, 28(probably a few more Jucos). Dead period basically means coaches can't meet players or parents face to face & coaches can't watch players games or practices. Coaches can only write letters or make calls to players/parents. I wouldn't put too much importance on the 17 class than the 18 class. We will have a few guys that will be seniors academically, but will have 2 yrs of eligibility left who will leave after they fill our depth and experience needs just for the upcoming season. Believe we'll probably have quite a few more scholarships available for the '18 class than ppl think at the moment.

RE: football recruiting
NSD has been the first Wed. in Feb and in 2017 that is Feb 1st.

With the dead period ending Wed. 1/11, the next three weekends (1/14,21,28) will be important for recruiting.

2017, I'm almost sure. On Feb.1, we will probably be closing in on the 85 limit anyway, unless some drop out for whatever reasons.

RE: football recruiting
Do we have any players in 2017 that will be seniors? The way it's looking, the 2018 class will be really small.
