RE: 2020 Official Recruiting Thread
The list looks really good. A couple observations:

It seems like we are going after highly rated guys

I don’t remember seeing this many offers this early in the process

A few seem to have Purdue offers as well, probably the new DC extending offers to guys on his radar there.

I like the early offers to high rated recruits

We’ve adopted the Toledo spray and pray method of offering any and everyone. In fact, when ever 247 gives any player a star rating of any kind, it comes with a complimentary Toledo recruit offer.

The new coaches are all over Twitter. Their excitement and invogaration of the Huskie football program is thrilling to watch. Recruits and fans are responding in kind. We may be witnessing the start of something very special at NIU.

Now I know we have not signed any yet but all the offers out to DEs are for guys 6'3" and taller. In the past, NIU has taken linebackers or runningbacks and converted them to rush ends. This could be a definite change in our defense.

I always a thought that was kind of cool. Perez Ford was a HS rb and so was Sutton Smith...

RE: 2020 Official Recruiting Thread
I just hope that the new staff does lose sight of our strong recruiting base in Illinois and Wisconsin. One of my questions about our recruiting is do we have the budget to recruit nationally. Flying back and forth to Florida, NJ etc. is expensive. In Chicagoland area, you can hit a lot more potential recruits because you can drive. If you spend a lot of money going to Florida, Texas, NJ etc. and come up empty, that is a waste of resources and NIU has a tight budget.

Seems like we're offering a lot more recruits and higher profile (i.e. more stars) recruits. It appears Hammock and his staff have a completely different strategy. Carey in the last year or two seemed to be changing his strategy of offering more as well. Anyone have perspective on this and how Hammock's approach may differ?

Carey started recruiting taller players as well last couple of years too. The idea is get athletes who can play other positions. Think of recruiting a group of 6'4, 6'5 guys play them at de,te,ot, lb, wr... I like our fr CB Walker he is tall for a CB, especially in the MAC.

Funny that the Toledo Whitmer QB is the first offer you see.
