It may be as difficult as it first appears. Any FBS local teams (ASU, Charlotte, ODU, Marshall as ex) would be easy travel. One could expect them to bring 1,500 to 2,000+ or more. Add a 15-20% increase LU attendance bump with all the hoopla that will surround the first year move up. It would seem a first year expectation would be 25,000+ per game would be reasonable. 25k in a 35k stadium still appears, and is a lot of people.

How long before we pick off our first 4* player? I think within the first four seasons.

I think it would take closer to 8 years than 4 in order for us to get a 4-star recruit. Gill does like to recruit Texas and Florida and both states do have plenty of high level recruits so it could be possible it happens sooner but I wouldn't bet on it.

Is Buckshot the QB to lead us into FBS or do we try and add an immediate FBS caliber QB? I know you try and bring in a QB per class. I think Buckshot should be good moving forward.

I am more concerned about pulling in linemen to compete at the next level.

RE: FBS here we come!
The biggest question right now regarding Buck is whether or not we redshirt him this fall. If we were to get a 5th-year senior FBS transfer it might give us that flexibility. As of right now, we need him playing. He has P5 caliber tools and showed tremendous improvement this past fall.

Offensive linemen have been an issue and will be getting a ton fo focus when spring drills start next week. We now have some extra scholarships to pass around and hopefully we will land some transfer help. In the past, Coach Gill has been reluctant to accept FBS transfers. He has taken in only a handful. But I suspect the sudden surge in scholarships will give him more flexibility.

How does the transfer rule work now that LU is FBS full status in waiting vs. the old rule where a FBS could transfer to a FCS school and play without sitting out a year?
