UC Davis Finishes Crooting Early, Class Introduction and Press Conference

Recommended Posts

While virtually every other coach in the nation is still out recruiting, UC Davis has closed up shop for the season.

 

"Recruiting on the FCS scale involves airplanes, buses and cars," UC Davis President Janet Napolitano began her statement, "our university's commitment to being green and eco friendly does not philosophically agree with mass recruiting policies so we have decided to limit the time frame in which our coaches can recruit for the year. Furthermore, we believe it is illogical to invite recruits to our campus when toxic smoke from nearby fires blocks out the sun and forces us to cancel classes. Thankfully, Coach Dacder has informed us that he has already signed a full class, and as reward I will be giving myself a $100,000 bonus."

 

Dacder had this to say: "Well I think it's a bit insane, but at the same time it lets me kick my feet up and focus on gameplanning for the rest of the year, so I can't really complain. Besides, I'm sure the guys we got will be fine for the time being."

 

Those players are listed below:

Congratulations on finishing up recruiting so early! Just curious coach, but what was your goal with this class? Which recruits are you most excited about?

Hey coach congratulations on your first complete class at UCD! Which (if any) of these players do you think will be major players as early as next season?

Thanks! 

 

I essentially wanted to establish a foundation for UC Davis football going forward. I knew that with 24 points I lacked the recruiting power necessary to grab highly contested recruits so I instead tried to grab decent quality starters across the board that I could build around going forward. The vast majority of these players will be starting in coming years so I think that goal was realized.

 

Obviously RB Chris Carlin and OLB Delonta John are the two most exciting recruits. They will be solid pieces moving forward in the construction of my offense and defense respectively. I'm also very excited about CB Zaire White and OT Mayer Whalen, as I highly value cornerbacks and offensive tackles as positions.

Thanks! I plan to play it patient but Delonta John and OG Alex Snell are two players I'm keying in as starters for our 2024 campaign. Chris Carlin may have a rotational role in our back field but more likely he'll be redshirted.

Really well done for a school like UCD. Should set you up with a nice foundation to move forward with.
