I was looking at recruiting in the MAC. Miami reports a class of 29.

https://miamiredhawks.com/news/2018/12/19/football-martin...

Seems Miami's roster only shows 20 RSSr/Srs. Typically some others are lost to medical and some rs Jrs may graduate and move on. However signing nine over the Sr group is a bunch. Thinking coach Martin might be churning his roster like a big time program. I hope this does not become the norm in the MAC. No doubt in my mind coach Martin will will be moving up shortly.

Buffalo at the last moment landed 6'5" 220lb. QB Trevor Bycznski of Berea-Midpark High of Cleveland. Trevor had been a commit to Rice.

I did a quick analysis of MAC recruiting quantities. If you assume that all freshman players recruited from 2015-2019 will still be on the roster this fall, and all JUCO players recruited in 2018-19, the teams would have the following number of scholarship players:

Miami 114
WMU 109
NIU 108
Ball State 107
Toledo 106
EMU 102
Ohio 98
BG 96
CMU 92
Kent 90
Buffalo 74
Akron 53

There are obviously errors in this data or everything would come out 85. So, things that cause these numbers to be over 85:
1. "Churning players"
2. Career ending injuries
3. Academic Non-Qualifiers
4. No shows
5. players suspended for off the field events
6. players who never redshirt, and in this case, were from 2015.
7. Players that leave the program for person reasons
8. Players reported as signed who were actually preferred walkons

Things that cause numbers to be under 85
1. Scholarships issued to walkons
2. Players that transfer in, including graduate transfers
3. Players whose data is not reported to the recruiting services, such as grayshirts

I would guess that CMU, Kent, Buffalo and Akron have a lot of players from the latter categories. The middle ground seems to be about 92-102. There are a number of schools on the high end. Is it explained by playing a lot of players from the 2015 class without redshirts? By a lot of career ending injuries? By a lot of no shows and academic non-qualifiers? Is it churning players, asking them to leave if they aren't working out? Is it players leaving because they aren't happy with the state of the program? I have no way to know.

FWIW, here are the Ohio players that this method suggests should be on the roster, but who are not, and the reason why I believe they are not here:

Used up eligibility in four years:
2015 Jake Hale
2015 Evan Croutch

Left due to injuries:
2015 Elijah Ball
2015 Mayne Williams
2015 Langston Provitt
2016 Sean Beadle?

Left due to off-the-field issues
2015 Addrell Taylor
2015 Kyle Belack
2016 Desmond Noel

Transferred for unknown reasons:
2015 - Maxwell Howell
2015 - Keith Key
2016 - Andrew Cree
2016 - Scean Mustian-Sherman
2016 - Taeshon Trotter
2017 - Brevin Harris
2017 - Jylton Tusha

Data Error:
2016 - Bryan Long, Jr - reported as scholarship, actually a preferred walkon
2016 - Nick Sink - reported as scholarship, actually a preferred walkon
2016 - Aiden O'Neill - reported as scholarship, actually a preferred walkon
2017 - Ogun-Semore - listed twice, once as Ayoola, once as Amos (sadly, there is only one of him)
2018 - Mason Bernhardt - preferred walkon?

As you can see, a certain amount of this stuff is going to happen, and a number in the 90s seems reasonable. 114? I don't know.

Lots of big time programs do this and much worst, I appreciate our coaches ethical support. Michigan forces out about 5-7 players per year on top of normal and injury attrition. Some coaches will not renew their players scholarship if they are not producing on the field, which is not always the athletes fault. If you go into somebodyís living room and say that you will take care of their son, you should do it.


Nobody despises to lose more than I do. That's got me into trouble over the years, but it also made a man of mediocre ability into a pretty good coach. Woody Hayes

They do it because it works. Four of the five teams with the most turnover are among the top 6 teams in the conference. The fact that Ohio and Buffalo were able to have good teams without turning over players so fast is to their credit.

In the past 3 to 4 years, things have been changing in Oxford, and the first place it has shown up is in their recruiting. They have gone from middle of the pack in the league when it comes to their football facilities, to a very clear first place. Their new indoor practice facility was long overdue and was their first positive step up. The next improvement was the the new home of Miami football in the endzone next to the practice facility. This complex holds big time locker rooms, team lounges, amazing training room facilities, coaching and staff offices, meeting rooms that are something to see. The only place I have seen that is head and shoulders above Miami's is the new home of Clemson football. It will be interesting to see how these improvements show up in their recruiting classes.

Yes, I knew that. Surprising thing was, after making that infamous tweet, he actually got serious about school and did fairly well academically. Nevertheless, that tweet shall live in infamy! ;-)

Miami raided a very talented Colerain High School (North Cincinnati) team and scored some quality D1 recruits for their incoming class in 2019. My St Ed Eagles defeated Colerain in the D1 State title game, but Colerain had some exceptional players. All of the Colerain stars seem to be going to Miami.

I'm not sure how OU recruiters evaluate the Ohio high school D1 landscape. It seems they're more enamored with JC transfers. That just may be my perception and not a true reality.

I do think there are a lot of great D1 high school players that would be great for the MAC, but they are never recruited. Some excel at the Big 10 or go out of state or attend smaller schools and a lot of them are really successful.

Miami has 8 signees from Ohio of their 29 recruits, Ohio has 8 from Ohio of their 19 recruits. Miami has 1 JC, Ohio has 2. All 4 of the Miami Colerain guys are 247 sports 2 star players.
Per Teds recruiting page, Ohio offered 48 Ohio players this year.
Not seeing your point.

Ohio typically has 2 JUCO players a year, a moderate number. BG and EMU are a couple schools who have done more than that. EMU has averaged 5 a year, for example. Akron hasn't had that many JUCOs, but instead has had a lot of transfers, which in the end are about the same thing, except that they aren't reported in the recruiting results, so numbers are hard to quantify.

It definitely is true that Miami is on the low end in terms of JUCO players, with only 2 in the last 5 years combined, but that gets us back to to the initial question in the thread. If all the players Miami has offered in the last 5 years were still on their team, they would have 114 players on scholarship (more if you include transfers, but I don't know how many of those they have). Where did the other 29 players go (they have to be at 85 or less)?

Any chance you know how many of those 48 were to kids from Ed's, Ignatius, Moeller, Elder, St. X or Hoban?

Wondering if Ohio offered QB Garrett Dzuro, RB Jordan Castelberry or SS Casen Kolesar from Eds?

Ted spends a lot of time maintaining a recruiting page:
https://www.bobcatattack.com/football/recruiting.asp

From the schools you mention, he shows an offer to
S Darnell Shields of St. Edwards - chose Cincinnati.
ILB Tommy Eichenberg of Ignatious - Ohio State
S Jeff Elad of Ignatious - Ohio
OG./DT Alex Merritt, Moeller - EMU
ILB Thomas Kiessling, St Xavier - no choice yet
QB Chase Wolf, St. Xavier - Wisconsin
DE Blake Basevich, St. Xavier - Cincinnati
S Matt Salopek, Hoban - Miami
DE Daeshon Martin, Hoban - Cincinnati
Ath Nate Bauer, Hoban - Toledo
