Re: D2 looking for Safety/LB prospects for upcoming season

Re: D2 looking for Safety/LB prospects for upcoming season 

The South has been in need of JUCO programs for years.  Mississippi isn't an option for most (due to out of state roster rules).  Georgia Military and Louisburg fill up quickly (Louisburg is also very expensive).  That leaves the Southern kids with fewer options than most regions of the country.  I do not know Mr. Hill.  However, I know of him.  I have heard nothing but good things about what they are doing down there.  That can't be said for all of these type programs.  I hope the Florida program works out.  These kids need the option of staying on this side of the country.

The Southern kids tend to refuse to leave.  That is something about this culture that needs to change.  However, if these programs are well operated...they will work.  The top 1/3 of JUCO programs are TOP NOTCH (operated and competition).  The middle 1/3 are solid.  The bottom 1/3...garbage (operations and competition).  Choosing to play at a well run program of this nature will give these kids similar experience as a middle of the road JUCO...and far better than taking them 3,000 miles away from home to a bottom feeder.

Good Luck Mr. Hill.  I hope the program does well.  It should return what you and your staff put into it.  Working with college coaches everyday on recruiting...tells me that this will certainly workout for the kids if you guys do it right.  The name on the jersey does help...the product wearing the jersey establishes relationships.
