8 in 5 if you want to get technical, which I do since you're being so petty. Braglio/Jackson are the oldest and graduated in 2012. That list doesn't include the 2017 kids so 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016= 5 years.
Again, name any McD skill players who should have gone higher. It's SO surprising that half of McD's scholarship FBS players in that span (3 out of 6 if you need me to do the math for you) come from the positions they've improved the most in since 2012.
A bunch of D2/D3 kids and lax players at the skill positions beat up on Gilman's highly ranked skill players 2 years in a row (and put a big scare into them in the 100th game) behind a star-studded OL/DL. When you only have 5 or less spots a year to bring kids in, you have to use them wisely. Skill players are a dime a dozen. Games are won and lost on the LOS.
Not my place to say who should have gone D-1, truth be told, McD is pretty horrible at developing their players. And stop saying 8 kids, we aren't talking about walk-ons! So we are talking about 6, 5 if we are being technical because Josh Woods didn't even get his offer until the after All Star game, where Maryland saw him.
And as I said, for all the money and shady business it does, McD is terrible at getting kids into schools.
