It is a different PL recruiting season so far. Except for Pards and Hoyas all have amped up early offers by significant amounts. Hopefully a successful strategy which will improve PL's dismal OOC records.

Fwiw, Bucknell's early offers this year, as of the end of June, are down a few from last year.     Have four commitments thus far, compared to three last year at this point.

Did we lose this many head to heads last year??  We're clearly not doing as well as last year, or the other PL teams .  Hopefully Garrett & co. step it up before early signing day.

All teams lose more than they win. A matter of arithmatic. Dont be concerned. You are losing out to Ivies and FBS teams. Watson wound up at UD where his Dad played. Most of the kids PL has offered are reaches. You may get 1 out of 100 but hey giving an offer costs nothing. So why not.
Even tho we are extending more offers as Cross and Buckies have done in prior yrs, dont expect much response until right before HS seasons start; some during the year and most after season.

So upon closer look, edge, maybe not as bad as it seems.  Of the 43 offers we've identified 16 have committed elsewhere.

10 to FBS (at least 6 3* players)
3 to CAA (inc. top academic Nova)
3 to Ivy (H-Y-C)

I'm not sure we've lost any H to H now that Watson has flipped from HC to UD.  I'll check.

Uncommitted Ntoh, Bayouth and Jackson claim Harvard offers; Perez, Hope, Harris, Weaver offered by Princeton.

Many of these early offers are reaches and academic window dressing. Coach JG is doing it his way, a different way from the rest of the league. I have to believe there's a lot of "stuff" going on in the background. Many of his top rated kids came in late last year. I will keep noting the developments and we shall see. Last year was encouraging.

Agree Andy. Coen gets most of his top recruits post season. IMO as their higher aspirations dont pan out
Falcone had a # of offers icluding Pitt. As they went elsewhere he came to Lehigh. We did get a few early like Fris who verballed early with 14 or 15 open offers. Never hurts to recruit both ends and try for the best while being ready for the best you can get.
