Where do blue-chippers (and future pros) come from?


Thought this was an interesting article and really brings home the point that focusing on NY recruits is not a great strategy for a D1 football program to employ. Don't get me wrong, it's always nice to get top NY kids, but the juice ain't worth the squeeze. I really like seeing the amount of talent produced in our new target area. The DMV. DC, Maryland and Virginia produce ridiculous talent and I'm glad we're finally reaching out to that region.

DC.

Love that we’re building credibility in Texas and Georgia as well. Need wins to progress here. Love our growing presence in AZ and mississippi as well.

Dumb article...various states produce NFL talent. Its between the Midwest , southeast, and Cali. Plain and simple .

This map is a little more interesting... By percent of capita, Florida comes in at a mediocre #23. Right between Mass/NJ.

California #29

Before you say, Florida's population is skewed by retirees... Florida ranks #3 in FBS football recruits, per capita. The #3(recruits) to #23(NFL), indicates, to me, it's just way easier to get recruited in FLA...

American Samoa produces FBS recruits at 6 times the rate of any other state...

Lots of interesting stuff here...

Excluding California, the more vegan restaurants the more likely you are bad at football... ;-)

3.00+ per 100,000 population
2.00 – 2.99
1.30 – 1.99
0.50 – 1.29


This irrefutable, not randomly drawn, fact, is what explains Fla #23 per capita, and California #29 per capita to the NFL.. Louisiana, completely vegan free, is #1 in recruits to the NFL, per capita.
