While I don't think that is good enough going forward, I do think that is a solid start for our first FBS recruiting class. There are 130 FBS schools and two FCS schools were ranked higher than us so we are 123 in FBS.

I expect us to be around 100 next year as we get better recruits, get our name out there more, and win some FBS games. Virginia is a pretty solid recruiting state but our staff focused more nationally. I like having a national approach, but I think it is important to lock in your home recruiting area so that you have something to fall back on. Hope we'd get up to the lower P5, upper G5 area of the rankings but that will take time and on-field results.

We are not jumping to 100 next year. I would think around 115-120.

While it's all subjective, and some high ***'s become low stars, and some low ***'s become high stars, if LU in 2018 is able to be above the lowest position FBS school entering FBS, as a indy, that is a success. And the requirement is to elevate each year the quality of recruits and increase the subjective ***-****-***** ratings and lessen the number from the 120's.

It wouldn't take much to move up to 100. If a couple two stars were three stars and a few no stars were two stars, we would be at 100. It is easier to go from 125 to 100 than 100 to 75.

Ball State is 100th right now. This how their 247 looks:

7 three stars
12 two stars
0 no stars or one stars

That is going to take awhile to get that high up (5 years would be my guess). Especially considering they aren't done recruiting either. I'm not saying we won't get there but to say in one year we jump 20+ FBS teams in recruiting is going to be almost impossible.

RE: 2018 Football Recruiting Rankings
Also just because you have more three stars doesn't necessarily mean you'll be higher than a team with less. Even average stars won't matter. They rank them according to a point total that's allotted to the player. Ball State has a juco signee that is ranked 56th out of all juco players. LU has never had a recruit that high up to my knowledge.

For record that would place him 772 overall.

RE: 2018 Football Recruiting Rankings
If you were to build a team through recruiting, how would you prioritize? I believe...

1) OL
2) QB
3) DL
4) K
5) WR
5) LB
7) DB
8) RB

I agree on the first three. Build the trenches up and the QB first. Second, sure up the defensive front 7 and the running game.

1) OL
2) QB
3) DL
4) LB
5) RB/TE
5) WR
7) DB
8) ST

How does one legally and respectfully bring the name up of good football players to recruit to our coaching staff or admin?
