JMU gets its 3rd Rivals & 247sports 3 star commit from MD (the other 2 are #1 and #7 in the above FCS 2019 recruit rankings). Same Olney, MD HS (Good Counsel) as the #1 recruit. Kid had 15 offers, including the Ivy league, so obviously a good student.

-MVFC 14

Of the 11 other conferences/about 100 teams, 31 of the 50 recruits.

So if the western conference teams are less than 1/5 of the teams, but have 38% of the recruits, how is that ECB?

If you use the Mississippi River as the East/West divider, the Southland is more of a Western Conference than the MVFC is. 10 of the 11 Southland football playing schools are west of the Mississippi River with Southeastern Louisiana being the only exception. Five of the 10 MVFC football playing schools are east of the Mississippi River.

Another interesting thing: As far as I can tell the westernmost school in the MVFC is the University of South Dakota. The westernmost school in the Southland is Abilene Christian University. Take a look at this Google Maps driving directions output for a trip between the two schools:

Image

While looking at that map also think about the fact that the easternmost football school in the Southland is somewhat west of New Orleans while the MVFC has schools in Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio. The Southland is a more "western" conference than the MVFC is.

If splitting the US into an "easter" and "western" half, using the Mississippi is a little too far east IMHOP. You're basically saying about 1 1/4 time zones is eastern, and about 2 3/4 time zones is western. How many people do you think consider Louisiana and Arkansas "western" United States? When not dividing the US into a bunch of regions (northeast, southeast, midwest, southwest, northwest, mtn west) and simply dividing it into eastern & western US, I would divide it more along the middle of the Central Time Zone, from the Dakotas/Minnesota border, down to the Texas/Louisiana border.
Image
After all, a perfect geographical east/west divide would bisect the Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma & Texas.

Oh I agree. I was just saying the Southland is more "western" than the MVFC is. I think the only truly western conference in FCS now is the Big Sky. The Southland is kind of in what has historically been known as the southwest extending into the mid south and I think the MVFC is a midwestern conference.

I continue to shake my head about the Southland in that their geographical footprint is so talent rich. It's not just stuff like this top recruits list. It's more solid things like players on NFL rosters. As of right now there are 18 Southland school players on NFL rosters. No school has more than 3. North Dakota State alone has 9 and James Madison has 8.

Compare where North Dakota State is in terms of talent production in the area against where Sam Houston State or any other school in the Southland is and it's not even remotely close close. North Dakota is bordered by Montana, South Dakota, and Minnesota. By the latest rating I could find for NFL players produced by each of the 50 States at https://www.cleveland.com/datacentral/i ... _most.html North Dakota had produced 3 NFL players, Montana had produced 5, South Dakota had produced 3, and Minnesota had produced 20. So North Dakota and its surrounding States had 3+5+3+20 = 31. Let's say you're McNeese State. It's home State, Louisiana, had produced 63 NFL players. Bordering States Texas, Arkansas, and Mississippi had produced 160, 12, and 27. So 63+160+12+27 = 262.

McNeese State is in the middle of football talent production heaven while North Dakota State is in the middle of a football talent production wasteland. Yet North Dakota State has 9 players in the NFL and 6 national championships while McNeese State has 0 players in the NFL and 0 national championships. In fact NO current Southland teams have ANY national championships even though they have access to Texas and Louisiana talent. It just doesn't make sense that they can't find a way to win SOME national championships.

NDSU I think (Gil can correct if wrong) gets over half their players (2/3?) from outside ND. Heck, they recruit a lot of their speed from FL. I know they had high single digit # of players from FL on last year’s roster- I dont think any were OL or DL..

The Southland and McNeese have underperformed as far as producing NFL talent in the last 5 years or so. But on the other hand, while LA is a talent rich state, but you have a ton of Div I schools. LSU, La Tech, La Lafayette, La Monroe, Tulane, SELA, Nichols, McNeese, Grambling, and Southern. If I didnt leave anyone off that’s 10 Div I football schools, where the avg state has about 5. In LA 5 I-A and 5 I-AA schools. Similar in other southern states. Lot of talent, but a lot of schools.

They did another one 7/30 with top 100:

FCS: Football Recruiting 2019 Top 100 Commitments
It may only be July, but the FCS already has more than 500 known commitments to schools. Which ones rank most highly? HERO Sports lets you know.

How do we come to the conclusion below? It's a mixture of a couple of things:
*How do the ratings services see them at the time of the commitment? (because many FCS commitments lose their higher ranking status after they commit to this level)
*How many offers does this recruit possess? If a large quantity of college coaches are offering this individual, that holds clout.
*Who is offering? If a young man has Power Five Conference offers or multiple FBS offers, that's another key factor in what you see below.

JohnStOnge wrote:I continue to shake my head about the Southland in that their geographical footprint is so talent rich. It's not just stuff like this top recruits list. It's more solid things like players on NFL rosters. As of right now there are 18 Southland school players on NFL rosters. No school has more than 3. North Dakota State alone has 9 and James Madison has 8.

Compare where North Dakota State is in terms of talent production in the area against where Sam Houston State or any other school in the Southland is and it's not even remotely close close. North Dakota is bordered by Montana, South Dakota, and Minnesota. By the latest rating I could find for NFL players produced by each of the 50 States at https://www.cleveland.com/datacentral/i ... _most.html North Dakota had produced 3 NFL players, Montana had produced 5, South Dakota had produced 3, and Minnesota had produced 20. So North Dakota and its surrounding States had 3+5+3+20 = 31. Let's say you're McNeese State. It's home State, Louisiana, had produced 63 NFL players. Bordering States Texas, Arkansas, and Mississippi had produced 160, 12, and 27. So 63+160+12+27 = 262.

McNeese State is in the middle of football talent production heaven while North Dakota State is in the middle of a football talent production wasteland. Yet North Dakota State has 9 players in the NFL and 6 national championships while McNeese State has 0 players in the NFL and 0 national championships. In fact NO current Southland teams have ANY national championships even though they have access to Texas and Louisiana talent. It just doesn't make sense that they can't find a way to win SOME national championships.


At one point (not true now, as the # has dwindled), Montana was FOURTH among states with NFL players per capita. Behind California, Texas & Louisiana.

There's an update and McNeese has a guy at #20 now. We'll see if he actually signs with McNeese. You know how that goes. As signing day nears LSU loses a recruit to Alabama. LSU drops back and takes one Louisiana Tech thought it was going to get. Then Louisiana Tech might start looking at some of the better recruits verbally committed to FCS schools.

I noticed that if you click on the original link at the top of the thread you go to a list as of early July. So apparently you have to do a Google search to get to the latest list as it's updated. McNeese's guy just verbally committed during the past week or so; which I suppose is why he wasn't on the earlier list.

"....James Madison and its third-year coach are in the process of putting together an ace class. All of the Dukes’ seven verbal commitments hold scholarship offers from at least two FBS schools. Four of the seven pledges have an offer from a Power Five program.... the class features two Rivals.com three-star prospects and four two-star prospects....

“The challenge now is when you’re recruiting guys that are so highly sought after, you’ve got to hold on to them. A lot of those guys have Power Five offers and a lot of them have people that are really pressuring them right now to try to flip them. So with recruiting, even though we’re in good shape right now, it’s never ending.
I was on the phone last night and I’ll probably be on the phone this evening. It’s a deal that when I was on vacation, I had to carve out a couple of hours each day to take care of this.”

Northwest (Germantown, Md.) cornerback AJ Woods, who gave his verbal to James Madison last month after earning offers from Virginia and Temple, announced over Twitter on Friday that he flipped his committment to Pittsburgh....

....“The big thing with the Power Five schools is just that we’re an FCS program. They hammer us with it.”

The big brother doesn’t like the little brother taking what’s not theirs, so Houston and his staff are doing everything they can until the NCAA’s early signing period in December to keep the class intact....

“And the thing that I always stress to the kids is that, ‘Well, if that’s the case then why don’t they play us, because these schools that are hammering us, they won’t play us or schedule us, and we’ve asked them, but they still want to demean us..."

...Houston said he’s adjusted to the early signing period, which was introduced last year. JMU inked 13 members of its 16-man 2018 class early....

...“With the early signing period, it’s sped up everybody,” Houston said. “It’s sped us up. It’s sped the players up....

...JMU will graduate just 12 players off its current roster at the end of the season..

That's interesting. I didn't notice that there are two. One thing that is kind of interesting to me is that both of the two are from McNeese's "home town" metro area (Lake Charles metropolitan statistical area). I'll be interested in seeing if the commitments hold up.

Don't forget #17 as well from my backyard NJ.
