I am copying a great summary recently posted by another blogger about BC's current class that puts Spaziani's recruiting strategy in perspective:
With 16 commits now in, some facts. Assume the new "BCS" is the ACC (14 members), B12 (10 members), B10 (12 members), Pac12 (12 members),SEC (14 members), and ND. So, 63 total teams in the new BCS that we will call the Big 5. Also, I have excluded the BC offers from the calculations.
Of the 37 FBS offers held by this class, 15 are from the MAC.
Only 12 of the 37 FBS offers come from the Big 5. So the class averages less than one Big 5 offer per recruit.
10 commits (62% of the class) don't have one offer from another Big 5 program.
6 commits (37%) have no other FBS offers.
4 commits (25% fielded no FCS or FBS offers.
Only 3 commits (18%) have 2 offers or more from big 5 programs.
The class has more offers from the Ivy league (3) than offers from the Big 12 (0), Big Ten (1), Pac 12 (1), and SEC (2).
There are more Patriot League offers (5), than offers from the Big 12 (0), Big Ten (1), Pac 12 (1), and SEC (2) combined (4).
Of the 8 offers from the other 13 ACC teams, only 2 were from Programs that had a winning season last year (FSU and UVA for Myles Willis).
There is only 1 offer for any player from a team that finished in top 25 last year.
The class has one recruit from Massachusetts and BC is his only offer. Every MA player with another offer from a Big 5 program has eliminated BC.
Of the 6 commits from Ohio, not one is ranked on Rivals Ohio Top 60. 5 of the 6 Ohio commits for BC don't have another Big 5 offer.
Only one BC commit is on the Rivals top 250, Issacs. As for the other 249, only one has recently mentioned BC as he is narrowing his list (Mike Parker).
The class does not have one commitment from New Jersey, obviously 0 of the top 30 NJ players ranked by rivals. By comparison, Temple has 2 committed, both of which BC offered. ONly one uncommitted NJ player has stated meaningful interest in BC as of now (Hunter Knighton).
The upside? We are dominating the great state of CT. As if Uconn, even in BCs completely weakened state, could compete.
