Hopson offered 587 recruits scholarships this year

https://www.si.com/extra-mustard/2020/0 … iss-offers


One wonders where they even found time for that, much less to assess the talent of 587 players.

And what if even half of them had accepted?

Re: Hopson offered 587 recruits scholarships this year

it's akin to the democrats running 25+ going into the primaries....and they still don't have one with any heart or soul....

#extraMustard was the apt label for the link to be filed under....

Zero value.......in fact a waste of money, time and energy and it needs to be addressed by McClain. I read a month ago how Hop goes all over the country and gets some really good fishing in when he does some of these recruiting trips. Curious to see how inflated our recruitment spend is compared to Monken and others before Hop. Just because he sucks at negotiating his salary doesn’t mean he gets to piss away valuable funds to pay for his outdoor expeditions.

Let’s not forget this treating offers like candy approach has still yielded average results in a below average conference at best so it’s a proven worthless tactic....

587 offers.... still only sign 23 a whopping 3.9% sign rate

that is beyond absurd... what if half accepted?  heck what if 10% accepted?  you can't sign 58 players

smh


Everyone has the right to be stupid... It's just that some people abuse the privilege.

He is using offers for marketing purposes. Would imagine a ridiculous amount of those offers went to 4 star or higher prospects that had zero interest in talking with Hop or our program.

Just dumb.........but hey as long as he still is making half a million and doesn't have any accountability I guess he can do whatever he wants no matter how strange and unproductive his approach is.....

There were 564 recruits that didn't like the "aw shucks" routine last year.  Know what I'm sayin?  But you "have to give credit to the other teams recruiting the kids...they were very prepared and had a good plan...I have faith that my men will get it done with preparation".
