Why No Serious Recruitment NKY Football - is it just me?

Recommended Posts

Absolutely shocking that there are not several NKY signings included in this link. It continues to amaze me that college coaches won't invest the time to recruit NKY more. I've said it before and I'll say it again, the bigger schools stop in Cincy, drive thru NKY to Lexington n L'ville.

 

2 State Champions and 1 Runner-up. There is good football in this area but it just appears not to be recruited at all IMO. Another year of this area being overlooked.

I assume you mean D1.

 

How many 2013 NKY D1s are there that should have offers?

 

I might take a run at McCoy for a WR slot but that would be a bit of a stretch.

 

I think Blake Bir is NAIA/1-AA non scholarship/1-AA.

 

Fogle? Probably a 1-AA player but could certainly get some interest from D1 smaller schools.

 

Who else?

Doesn't necessarily have to be D1. If u look at this area over the last say 10 years u simply don't see the the area being recruited heavily or modestly for that matter. I'm just saying the area has good enough players to warrant some looks not necessarily offers but looks.

 

Yes it's a parents job to get their son exposure but when teams in this area put the work in ud think ud see a few more looks in this area. I'm not originally from here so it's just a lil perplexing to me. It may be just my own notion.

You have to remember, less than 6% of all high school football players actually get to play in college at any level. (How Many High School Athletes Get To Play NCAA Sports.). Most of those aren't on scholly, and some don't even get recruited, they just walk on, especially at smaller schools. So in reality, at a typical high school game, with 50 player squads, only 6 will play at the next level. The reason not many are getting recruited, is that, frankly many won't be able to play. If you're talking D1, the numbers are almost silly low.

First, I'm well versed in the numbers and stats part of the recruiting game, have sons playing at the D1 level now so it's not my first rodeo. I think everyone is missing my point. If you check the Enquirer from today you will see that Michigan State and Tennessee were at high schools in Cincinnati today. My point is that if these schools raid the Cincy area why do they not spend 15 extra mins to come across the river just to see. Of course you have the studs like Barker, Elliott, Nichols and I guess you could include Collinsworth in that discussion of recent past but I refuse to believe that out of all the athletes in this area that none of them warrant a look.

 

I am not talking about all these kids getting D1 offer by top programs but having played D1 ball myself you can't tell me that the play of most NKY teams is that far away from Southern Ohio. I rarely read lower level D1, FCS, or DII schools coming to this area like that of the Cincy area, yes Ohio has great HS football. Agreed there are alot that players that do not want to continue playing beyond HS but I personally, and I mean absolutely no disrespect here what so ever, refuse to believe that the talent level for NKY is traditionally only at the TMC, MSJ, Lindsey Wilson, and Georgetown level. All those programs are respected and good but I just think there are some very good players that warrant a look. Maybe I'm alone here or maybe some of those players are getting those looks and it's just not public but I just think there are some kids here that can "play" (i.e. Fogle, Nussbaum, Bir, and Durham-who I understand is going to take a walk-on opportunity I believe at UC but you're telling me that player doesn't deserve a ride somewhere especially at the TE position?)

 

I follow the Enquirer daily and see what's going on just across the river and has me scratching my head sometimes. Anyway, guess it is what it is but it's just my observation right, wrong or indifferent.

^^^many also choose not to play, especially at the lower levels.

 

I agree.

Most NKY talent is smart school talent, UC talent, or TMC talent. A blue chip will slide in once a decade.

Is Pat Towles considered a blue chip?

There is more going on than most know. Many kids choose to keep their recruiting to themselves and their families rather than post updates on every Internet site and blog known to man.

To add.. There are also others that have not yet made their decision and have yet to commit.

Was Lorenzen? Hard to say if blue chip but very good QBs who could get to UK. I would put UK ahead of UC on my list I missed that part. Blue Chip would be more of multiple BCS offers.

Because we have kids who are 6'-1"- 6'3" and do not fit into the D1 box.

I have a feeling that the very geography of this site lends itself to readers/posters overrating NKY's talent level. Like it or not, most posters on here (whether they will admit it or not) don't have a clue about football in Lex or Lou or Cincy other than what they read on this site. C-Boy78 is absolutely correct. Let's face it, while the brand of football is very good here in NKY, it's not really as significant as we like to think it is and build it up to be on the heavily NKY biased site.
