BC might land one 4 star over a UF or Alabama, etc. But if 6 guys originally destined to become 4 stars all chose BC, the basement weirdos are automatically going to assume they were wrong in their assessment. The assumed destination drives the rating, particularly when you get down to the level in the ranking where BC is traditionally looking, and the basement dwellers have watched the same grainy tape on Hudl that we all watch.

If BC lands guys in the top 200 on any of these lists, fine, they are probably very good. But they also will have multiple offers from big time schools, which is why they are ranked that high. After 200, blind darts from the basement means nothing.

Essentially, recruiting rankings are significantly more biased and skewed than coronavirus stats.

As it should be but you are the one who made the comparison of classes all being around 60th when the fact of the matter is a bunch of Daz’s classes didn’t have a majority of players with other P5 offers. Hence the pointing out that rankings mean nothing this cycle.


If you think this class is materially different than the ones we've had before, then more power to you. Looks about the same to me.


P5 Offers for commits:
2014: 14/28
2015: 14/25
2016: 11/19
2017: 12/21
2018: 10/20
2019: 16/19
2020: 12/13
2021: 15/17

Yeah I’d say it’s pretty different considering they’ve already got more commits with P5 offers, and a lot more coming, then any of the classes in 14-18 in a smaller class.


I completely reject the chosen metric as valid, but I'll play along. This information either tells me that Addazio got significantly better at recruiting in his lame duck years, after losing his strongest recruiting assistants (Washington, Day, Brown), and despite the eye test telling me something very different - OR it tells me that somewhere around 2018 the recruiting sites got better at using social media to track down the offer lists of the types of kids who end up at BC. I have a feeling it's the second.

19 and especially 20 will turn out to be strong classes.

His recruiting did get better which interesting enough, or not if you pay attention, coincides with the news and subsequent building of the IPF. As for the tracking of the offers I’ve been following recruiting and covered it for years it’s not any easier or more difficult as it was for those classes that’s just not a relevant factor. Fact of the matter if the recruiting did get better on paper in the later classes and Hafley has took it up another notch on top of that.

The DMV recruiting is very impressive. Doubt BC lands this kid, but there's a ton of football talent down there.

Great to see us have so much early success down there, but it would be nice to hear a little more buzz about some of the other recruiters/territories. Seems like everything is down there.
