Would any of those games be played in San Antonio?

RE: 2020 C-USA Recruiting Thread
We just got someone covering our recruiting this spring, we all know that having a paid subscription site on rivals 247 or scout(is scout still around?) means higher ratings on that website.

That said, the bulk of guys we have signed in the last two classes at least had a handful of offers from other G5 schools. That means so much more to me than a 78 or 84 ranking on 247sports. I know we are signing guys other FBS coaches identified as players they wanted, instead of picking the leftovers and putting the class together in December/January. That was our method for years and years with piss poor results.

Recruiting isn't a race to see who can get as many commitments as quickly as they can, it is about the QUALITY of the recruits regardless of how quickly or slowly they commit.

Problem with Rivals is they don’t confirm actual commitable offers. The Mack kid on the USM Rivals list doesn’t have a commitable Offer.

I've been out of town on vacation for a week, so I haven't updated our recruiting lately...

North Texas added two more recruits this past week, and has 14 players committed to their 2020 class.

RE: 2020 C-USA Recruiting Thread
Louisiana Tech picked up its 9th and 10th commitments this weekend. One is a QB from the Houston area and the other is a 6-6 230 DE. You wouldn't know this from 247 Sports recruiting though, they think we're still at only 7. 03-zzz

Your QB shows as being committed to LA Tech on 247. He is a nice addition congratulations.

How does Rivals have your DE rated?

North Texas adds their 15 player to their 2020 class by snatching one from an AAC program...

Norman, OK TE Jake Roberts was Tulsa's highest rated recruit, but has switched to the Mean Green. The player also had offers from Colorado, Memphis, & Air Force among others.

It’s all about the west in the Updated 24/7 Rankings:

1. UNT (31(32) nationally and 1st G5)
2. Rice (50(47), 5th/4th G5)
3. LaTech (61)
4. UTSA (68)
5. USM (80)
6-10. FAU, FIU, UAB, Mars, ODU

WMU, Bowling Green, and now Cincinnati join UNT and Rice in G5 top 5.

RE: 2020 C-USA Recruiting Thread
Yes, we've all discussed ad nauseam that you should take what # of stars a kid has by his name w/ a grain of salt (unless we're talking 4-5 stars obviously)...but again, I just don't understand the metrics of the rankings when it comes to 2-3 star ratings. It's like they give out 3-stars to ANY kid that has at least 1 D1 offer. Here's some recent 3-star commits:

-USM WR Dartravien Girod - offers from Kansas, ULL, and ULM.
-UNT S Garnett Burke - offers from Kansas, Ark State, Liberty, USM, SMU, Prairie View, Texas State, Utah State, UTSA, UTEP
-UNT DT Ta'Shoyn Johnson - offers from Houston Baptist, Howard, ULM, McNeese State, Nevada, New Mexico, Prairie View, Sam Houston, Tulsa, Western Illinois
-UNT OLB Jacobi Johnson - offers from Central Oklahoma, Cornell, East Central University (who???!!???), New Mexico State
-UNT S Jordan Nichols - only offer is North Texas
-LT QB JD Head - offers from Ark State, CSU, Kansas, Southern Miss, ULL, Nevada, New Mexico, Penn, Texas Southern, Texas State, Troy, Tulane, Yale, UTSA
-UNT TE Jake Roberts - offers from Tulsa, Air Force, Colorado, Eastern Michigan, Memphis, Missouri State

Sorry folks, these are not 3-star recruits.

There is no reason to even look at "rankings" right now. These sites all reward sheer number of recruits which doesn't mean much in June and doesn't necessarily mean your class will be strong come December or February.

Sure there is.
A) it’s about as meaningful as the Orlando Scentanal ratings, and
B) I’d rather be in the top 5 than the bottom 5

Nick Harvey just announced he's going to be playing for the Mean Green this season. Looks to be a grad transfer

https://247sports.com/college/south-caro...132948708/

Big time addition for us at CB after both our starting corners graduated. Will be interesting if we play him at corner or safety. Formerly #60 player in the nation out of high school.

Harvey was a 4 Star recruit for Texas A&M, where he started for 2 seasons, before an injury sidelined him. Harvey transferred to South Carolina for one seasons, but will join the Mean Green for his Senior season. This looks like a great addition.

Not worried about recruiting at this point in the season. Marshall was ranked 11th in CUSA even after the Dec early signing. And then ended up #1 or #2 when the Feb signing period was over depending on who you talked to.

But this did just happen today:





Needless to say the couch burners up north aren't to thrilled and are down playing the move.
