Was reading another thread and saw the views on Edsall. No matter what you think of him terps football is going to be in the B1G cellar for many many years. Franklin at PSU is really gonna hurt UMD, but what's worse is that LJ went to OSU. OSU is now in major play for the area.
Let’s face it the best player didn’t go to UMD because of the staff either. I’ve put some numbers together and not only isn’t there a so called pipeline to the big 3, there isn’t even a pipeline to the in state kids.
Now I know some are going to consider other kids as ranked or not ranked and so on. I also counted kids if the school the signed with was their only BCS offer whether is UMD or not. Now thinking about it I should've have added that stat to.
I've talked with many kids and parents over the years about UMD. And this is just my opinion but I think Edsall is the main issue with kids not going wanting to go to UMD.
These are Edsall’s recruiting stats from his arrival in 11 to 14
There have been 6 5* and 24 4* players produced in MD high school football from 11-14. Only 4 have gone or are going to UMD.
MD high schools have had 115 kids sign with BCS schools, 24 of those went to UMD. 20%
Of the 115 65 went to either conference or bcs contenders, 8 of those went to UMD. 12%
Dematha, GC, and Gilman had 45 players sign with BCS schools, 7 of those went to UMD.
2015 MD has 8 4* star kids and 2 have already committed to USC and PSU. Outside of Locksley I don’t see any of the rest going to UMD.
