or Florida still have to pay the 35k? From a strictly talent standpoint does it make sense to recruit more regionally? Penn State has the same problem with their baseball team in my view. They cast a wide national net when there is abundant talent in the surrounding states. Trying to convince warm weather kids to attend a northern baseball school doesn't make much sense to me. It would seem that the local schools would have a huge advantage in this regard.

I just think we would be more successful recruiting kids from Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, etc. From a purely recruiting standpoint does this make sense?


Those kids may pay less

It's very possible that a can't miss kid from California or Texas is given more of an athletic scholarship while the local kid gets more of an academic scholarship.

My mind is fuzzy on this but I could have sworn I read years ago that after a year on campus, the athlete is considered a resident of the state and then can get the state discount.


I honestly don't know their recruiting strategy...

I know this is the first time I've ever heard of them taking jucos...the other thing that goes against them is comparatively shitty facility; I've been to many college venues over the past couple yrs and considering the resources ND has, the facility is a joke...it's not just recruiting, it's a total program commitment issue


Appreciate it *
