Had me wondering where this town in VA I’d never heard of was.

RE: 2021 Football Recruiting
With these last couple of commits it’s clear that JMU Football is in such good shape that kids that hold FCS and FBS offers wait for JMU to officially offer and then quickly commit to the Dukes. Kids want to be part of our high level program.

FWIW Greg Madia is posting daily articles in the DNR on the 2021 recruits. Over the past few days he's had 4 articles on Atkins, Gathings, Horton and Binkowski

Run of JMU commits continue. Dukes just landed Stone Bridge (Ashburn) linebacker Skylar Martin, who announced his commitment on Instagram. He picked JMU over UConn, Louisville, Vanderbilt and Virginia.

RE: 2021 Football Recruiting
Another HUGE get for Cignetti and the staff. This class is shaping up to be our best ever. Pretty impressive what HCCC has been able to accomplish in his first full recruiting season.

Great time to be a Duke. We will survive and THRIVE as we move forward.

Go Dukes!

RE: 2021 Football Recruiting
this is a low end P5 recruiting class we have starting off here.

absolutely killing it so far.

should expect 247/Rivals to do its usual bull**** and downgrade our guys from 3 stars to 2 stars in the next month.

Thankfully our buddy Greg Madia took a screenshot so we can expose the BS that recruiting sites pull by downgrading players for committing to certain programs.

I am hearing nothing but crickets from the Cignetti recruiting skeptics who were going on and on over the past year. We're out recruiting some ACC and low end SEC schools (Vandy, UK). I never thought I'd see the day.

But guys, we are only good because of transfers... lol

RE: 2021 Football Recruiting
I'd agree with what Dukester has said several times about how last year's recruiting didn't really seem to 'wow' me nearly as often as Houston's did. That's definitely not the case so far this year... I guess these guys are just verbals right now though right? Hopefully they follow through.

RE: 2021 Football Recruiting
Saw I post (maybe on Rivals) that ranks the 2021 recruiting class so far and JMU was #77 overall. So yeah...beating out several P5 programs and most G5 programs. The recruiting class is very impressive. While it's always fun getting a Palmer that was under-recruited, it's also nice seeing us win recruiting battles against some teams that have been in and out of the Top 25 over the past few years.

RE: 2021 Football Recruiting
The recruiting has been very impressive. What also has impressed me so far is that many of the guys are coming in closer to FBS size than in the past.
We should temper our enthusiasm on the rankings though (at least as far as a team like ECU is concerned). They are based purely on star rating, multiplied by the # of players at the rating. Total the aggregate together and divide by commitments.

We have three 3 stars, a 2 star and two 0 star guys. That equals 11 points
ECU has 2 commits: Both are 3 stars. That equals 6 points
Thus, we have the "higher" ranking. In reality though, they are averaging 3 stars per commit, whereas we are averaging 1.83.

In fairness though, I seriously doubt the 2 we signed deserve 0 stars. If somebody is not quite "worthy" of a 2 star rating, there should be a 1 star ranking in this process- but doesn't appear to be one.

I hope so. Awfully small and not a dual-threat.

I think the addition of the new UAB, new coach and excitement about that will help bring in higher level football recruits. They love going to see exciting bball too!
