[2023] EMU Recruiting Evaluation and our Hopes for Next Year

Recommended Posts

 

Me and the EMU Athletics Board just recently created an EMU recruiting recap on the recruits we wanted to see on the team next year. Unfortunately, none of our 4.0-5.0 star players committed, putting us 142nd in the nation. Now, it is time to recap the full recruiting year and how we can improve it for the 2024 recruiting season.

 

:emu: RECRUITING RECAP :emu:

Recruited 21 players

Average stars: 2.69

 

A statement from HC @wisconsinfan in his end of 2023 season press conference:

"I am greatly disappointed by our recruiting efforts this season, from the last coach to our transition time to when I took charge. It is my duty now to make sure that this does not repeat next year. It is very important for a college that wants to rebuild into a bowl caliber team to have decent to stellar recruiting classes, and this isn't what should be represented as even a 'mediocre' or even acceptable recruiting year."

 

LOOKING TOWARDS THE 2024 RECRUITING SEASON

From the last press conference near the end of the 2023 recruiting season, HC @wisconsinfan spoke about his plan for the 2024 recruiting season as well.

"Our biggest problem is our defense and our OL. Our offensive line rating taken from the W15 game against Toledo only was a 3.9. We also gave 1 turnover on offense. It can be said that the whole offense needs working - a 3/10 3rd down conversion rating that same game. But I believe that the amount of yards we give up on defense is really hurting our chances in big games. We gave up around 430 yards on defense that game and recovered 0 turnovers. Even possibly [the worst part] - 0 sacks. This whole team needs tweaking in order to be a bowl caliber team. So how do we turn this recruiting season into one of a 'stellar' quality? I think our best bet would be drafting pipeline state players that work with our current offensive and defensive plans. It would be great to sign good, reliable recruits that fit into our gameplans. Possibly even some 4-5 :star: players, but I am looking at improving our 3 stars and 2-star recruit numbers. I am not allowing this recruiting season to fall short with 8-1 star recruits, and just 1-2 star recruit. We will need to be aggressive in this recruiting season if we want to build the program like many other teams have been successful in doing. Thank you."
