I didn't see another one of these created. I see 2024 and 2026... given that we have our first batch of visitors in town for this class and we started camps, we should have one. Looking through the official visitor list, it looks like they're all 3 stars and 1 4 star. Some of the 3 stars appear to have interest from some P4 teams.

Looks like two of those visitors committed via sea of red (that we, the viewers, know of).

Make that 6! That NY6 bowl is paying dividends.
It’s interesting that you said you’re not excited about transfers who “will likely be gone before meaningful playing time” but are excited for high school commits who are even more likely to be gone before they see meaningful playing time.

Honestly Im excited for both, even if some of the players don’t see the field in a meaningful way. The reasoning is that our attractiveness as a destination seems to be increasing. I’m sure a lot of it has to do with NY6 but I also think the changing NIL landscape may be nudging some recruits our direction but I have nothing to back that up.

Also it seemed that many underrated Chadwell as a recruiter as well before he came here. He out-recruited us when he was at Coastal so maybe he’s bringing some of that magic here now with a full season under his belt.

We just picked up a 4 star running back that may be our highest rated commit, ever. A slew of other 3 star commits, a few with P4 offers also committed. We saw an uptick in quality of transfers as well. Our betting odds are 23rd highest in the country of making the college football playoffs. The momentum seems to be continuing regardless of the reason. Exciting times to be a Flames football fan.

It is interesting to see what's happening, and you're probably correct that we are are seeing some great recruiting skills of Chadwell and crew. I did realize in some of the commits photos of the improvement of LU's event planning for official visits also. One of the photos, the committed recruit (Nik Alston) was styling and profiling in front of a tesla truck :lol:

Is this accurate?

Since yesterday…

• Highest rated RB commit ever and highest rated commit ever period.

• Highest rated WR commit ever. (We had one slightly higher in 2020, Stewart, that never enrolled at LU I don’t think)

• Two Highest rated DT commits ever.

I can't get excited about individual players anymore until I see them performing on the field. This 4* running back is no different but when multiple guys with P4 offers sign on the same day it's hard not to be excited about the programs trajectory.

Come on, you’re at least a little excited! :lol:

Right now we sit at 69 overall for our 2025 ranking on ON3. The only non P5 ahead of us is UNLV at 68.

Of course there are a lot more recruits to fill in and a lot of time for our recruits have their rating dropped after they commit to us as they did for Bradford.

It's good to see us bringing in some quality recruits on defense. Based on his time at coastal my only major concern about Jamey chadwell is his track record on the defensive side of the ball.

Time will tell based on how the defense looks this year vs. prior. We lost some key players in the secondary, but our front 6 should be better. I think CB is where I'm most concerned, especially if we can't improve on our ability to rush the QB w/ our front 4.

I don't really expect the defense to be significantly better this year vs last year and I'm not going to start judging him for it until at least year 3. At this point most of those guys on defense were recruited by chadwell but we are still in that middle ground where his HS recruits are underclassmen and the incoming transfers are mostly stopgap solutions to replace outgoing transfers.
