UW's New Recruiting Strategy

Posted: 6/16/2014 12:52 AM

UW's New Recruiting Strategy 


Recruiting cycles traditionally follow a pattern we've all grown used to. A staff evaluates hundreds of prospects, creates a prospect board, and offers from the top down. As top prospects move on, the staff offers the next group of prospects on the list, until they eventually land a prospect. The problem with following with tradition is that it traditionally always ends the same way. For UW, that means landing a few higher end players, several mid level guys, struggling to fill the last 5ish spots in the class, and winding up with a recruiting class ranked somewhere in the 30s-40s nationally.

To Coach Andersen, the traditional way of doing things was a giant headache last season. He got himself into several higher profile recruiting battles throughout the cycle and, by the time UW found out that they weren't going to land those players, the next several tiers of players had longstanding relationships with other staffs, were starting to pick up interest from the high profile programs or were too far along in the process for UW to make any headway. UW was pushed way down their board and left scrambling to find offer-worthy prospects. Based on some of the comments Coach Andersen made about the difficulties and frustrations of the cycle, it's clear UW missed on several prospects they thought they were going to land and ended up with more reach prospects and unfilled spots than they had anticipated.

With the frustrations of the 2014 class fresh in their minds, the staff made a fundamental shift in their recruiting strategy for 2015. Rather than an elaborate top-down tiering system, the staff essentially categorized prospects into four groups; can't miss prospects, B1G caliber prospects, prospects to watch, and passes. The can't miss prospects were offered throughout the fall and winter, which is no different from any other year. However, as spring rolled around, when most programs were working into their second tier of prospects, UW offered almost every player they considered B1G worthy. In doing this, UW was able to get in on prospects that most other schools have not yet, but eventually will get to on their board. For their efforts, UW has been rewarded with a plethora of early commitments from players they feel good about. Additionally, they have afforded themselves more time to cement their relationships with the recruits, which should help to insulate the class from late-season poaching.

Coach Anderson has said he would like to have this class 90% finished before the season starts. If that comes to fruition, the in-season recruiting effort will then be concentrated on high end luxury players, poaches, and emerging seniors that the staff has been watching throughout the summer and fall. In the end, UW should end up with a class full of solid players and a smattering of star power. To the fan who salivates over four and five star recruits, this approach to recruiting isn't sexy. However, for a coach who was frustrated by the lack of depth on the back end of his last class, this might be exactly what's required.
Sure...I'll take a look.

2014 class was the best class ever, staff should go back to that strategy assuming they've changed it like you said

The 2014 class ranking was the product of high numbers and a strong in-state class. The quality of the depth on the back end of that class and the number of scholarships that went unfilled were not in line with what the coaching staff had planned for. Further, there were several prospects the staff felt good about that got slow played and eventually went elsewhere, effectively dropping the proverbial floor out from underneath the staff's feet.
Sure...I'll take a look.

Re: UW's New Recruiting Strategy 


During the month of June commits yielded:

3 2-stars

3 players that are not rated yet 

3-star OT that needs a lot of reshaping and cardio conditioning. 

They took commits this month while there were still better prospects on the board that they had a fighting chance with. You know this and don't have the guts to say it. 

If that level of recruiting gets you excited then you will be excited how the second game against LSU goes and the games against Alabama. 

The DE out of St. Louis has the best upside potential of this group of commits and he is not college ready either.

247 has Howard rated higher than a DE currently committed to Bama.

Re: UW's New Recruiting Strategy 


I have unknownfan on Ignore.  I suggest everyone else does the same, or at least doesn't respond to him.  There is no point.

As to the change in strategy, it's clear they are doing something different and XRay seems to be on the mark.  Whether it is a good change or not remains to be seen.  I'm sure it is incredibly taxing to have to do hard core recruiting all season long while you're preparing for games and doing everything else that goes along with being a head/assistant coach in-season.  I'm sure it would be a welcome change to have more of the heavy lifting done before the season.  But the results are what matters.  I see a pretty good class taking shape - not an improvement overall compared to what we normally get but it looks pretty solid.  If AK47 does what I think he can do everyone will remember this as a great class because QB is such an important position.

Re: UW's New Recruiting Strategy 


In comparing the results of this year's class to date with previous ones, most all of the current commits hold a composite ranking somewhere within the normal range for UW and in many cases (like Nick Thomas), they're actually ranked higher than the majority of the players taken at their positions over the previous several classes. The fact that the staff was able to do this with relatively little resistance seems to imply that the new strategy is working. 

Sure...I'll take a look.

Re: UW's New Recruiting Strategy 


Thank you Xray for the insight, I like this approach.  All ask is for the coaches to go after passioniated football players.  I am hoping that a couple of the instate kids still get offers, because it seems the guys from the state bring an intangible that's hard to measure on paper.   Don't get me wrong I like the kids they did sign.

Re: UW's New Recruiting Strategy 


They are just upset because I spoke the truth of what this so called new strategy actually yielded for the month of June. 

We have the 13th worst star average rating per commit in the B1G right now on Scout and the 11th worst star rating average commit on another service. 

That is all based on everything as of this morning. 

That isn't going to get W's against LSU and Alabama, but it can keep you competitive against MN and Purdue.

It's hilarious, because 3 of UW's players aren't ranked yet in Scout.  A real fan isn't going to take those #s and showcase them.

He/She is like that drunk family member that you know is going to say/do something stupid and then think everyone is laughing at what they did/said.  When instead they are laughing at how sad they've become.  He/She really needs to get a life.

It doesn't take many brain cells to understand what 'right now...as of this morning' means. Maybe you need some more to understand the meaning of it? 

The staff still took 3 players that were not good enough to even be rated by all of the services when they committed. Two of the 3 have a grand total of two ratings right now so the composite rating can't even be discussed yet since it only contains 1 of 4 elements that comprise it.

The only issue I have with this comparison is 'drunk' implies a temporary state.

The only thing temporary about his embarrassingly awful posts is his screen name (allaboutrecruiting, shadowsofCR, Menomonie1, MadisonBadger, and now....unknownfan81).

Yeah,and if you used him in your rankings right after he committed, it would drag the team's avg down and be a stupid thing to use.  Just like using the ranking of a player who hasn't being scouted yet so they are at 0.  Unless you are a troll of another team.  Trying to show how bad 'we' are.  Why not just wait until their rankings come out to get an actual fair assessment?

You do realize Unknownfan is a troll right?  I applaud his persistence at trying to be a troll.  Even going thru multiple incarnations with obvious names.  I laugh at his idiocy to try and continue the charade after he's been found out.

Re: UW's New Recruiting Strategy 


Because his posts are utter nonsense devoid of any value. His entire premise is to make inflammatory remarks and misrepresent the facts. His challenge is that he has zero credibility. The only worthwhile info he posts here comes from information gathered on other sites (usually behind a pay wall).

That's why he's on his umpteenth username (allaboutrecruiting, shadowsofCR, menomonie1, madisonbadger, etc...).

You don't get banned that many times by accident.

Is it allowed to disagree on this forum?
I don't see much star power or other significant offers on ESPN or Scout for these recent commits.
So we're casting for smaller fish now? Perhaps you experts could enlighten me.

Re: UW's New Recruiting Strategy 


You do realize that three of the recruits out of 13 are not rated, right? This does not mean they are bad either.  All three will be mid to high 80's. I will take that all day. 

If you want to lock in all 4 and 5 stars, you will have to move Madison to an ocean and offer free tuition to female students. That is not happening here, plain and simple.

He/She is like that drunk family member that you know is going to say/do something stupid and then think everyone is laughing at what they did/said.  When instead they are laughing at how sad they've become.  He/She really needs to get a life.
Misnomer..most had him as a 4-5 star player. He was well known and one site just fukked up.
Thomas is indeed a bad example...he was a 5 star who was heavily recruited by many schools including ND. However, how about the 5 Badgers who were drafted this year? Only one (Allen) was considered a great catch. White was a 3 star. The others were 2 star or less....Abby was a freaking walk-on. If the staff sees the talent to play in the Big10, I trust them (see Leon Jacobs).

BM has already responded in one of his many threads that the rankings are out of date and will be updated soon (within the next month, I believe he said).

edit - And by BM I meant BW.  Old habits and all.
