Jody compiles a list of where all the recruits came from in this years' recruiting class. Dispels the myth of who is getting the in state kids and who isn't.
Louisville: 24 recruits, 9 states, 10 (most) from Florida, 2 from Kentucky
Kentucky: 25 recruits, 8 states, 8 (most) from Georgia, 4 from Kentucky, 4 from Florida
Indiana: 25 recruits, 10 states, 8 (most) Indiana, 2 from Florida
Western Kentucky: 13 recruits, 5 states, 6 (most) from Florida, 4 from Kentucky
Eastern Kentucky: 27 recruits, 9 states, 8 (most) from Kentucky, 4 from Florida
Murray State: 16 recruits, 7 states, 4 (most) from Kentucky and Tennessee, 0 Florida
It will be like this every year 8-11 from Florida..I will like to see the Staff start gettn in Tex and Louisiana.There is some good talent in there.Maybe I can work those..Lol
Yep....only exception in next 20 years is Trinity's 2013 class. Otherwise, 8-11 is fabulous!
I think that Demlings' point here is the fact that either UK or UL got much from the state of Ky. UofL got most of theirs from Fl. while Ky got most of theirs from Georgia. Both programs are going out of state to get kids to compete at a BCS level. Even WKU went out of state for most and they are not even BCS level. This is in retrospect to the Wales recruitment and some articles that have been published.
Let's face it. We simply just do not have a big pool of talent to pick from when it comes to KY High School Football. And the fact that these local and state kids feel that we should bend over backwards and break our necks to get them to come to our respective schools is what's so confusing to me. These kids have too much of a prima-donna attitude and meanwhile the Florida kids are smart enough to realize their capabilities but still be down to earth enough to realize that they still have to work for what they have to earn. As long as that continues to happen, I'll take the Florida kid over the local kid in a heartbeat, no matter how much the local kids want to gripe and complain about being left out.
Go Trinity! "Nuff said."
I couldn't agree more. We need to get the Trinity kids to come in and set the example to the rest of the local knuckleheads about what Coach Strong expects.
We need to get into Indianapolis and also Ohio a little better. Has Dawkins from Trinity been offered? I think he can put on enough weight to play effectively.
