Excellent article on the transfer portal / recruiting

Recommended Posts

Lots of different opinions from various coaches. Interesting comment from one that the most important recruiting now in the winter is recruiting to keep your roster intact vs high school kids.

Also how Spring Camp MAY contribute to the transfer portal problems and dislikes from coaches and fans.

It is going to be a skill that head coaches will need to master.

I suspect the biggest problem coaches have is saying one thing during recruiting and another when the player gets into practice. That's got to be tough.

This is where having a young staff across the board can be a huge advantage for Oregon.

It's a brave new world and no country for old men. (Except for Saban 😒)

The bottom line is in most situations players want to PLAY. They are not transferring to be third string. So they are looking for the best opportunities to GET IN THE GAMES.

Of course there are exceptions like Travis Dye where playing time was not an issue(I am assuming).

Some look to play closer to home; for a better system, etc. but overwhelmingly can they play vs standing on the sidelines.

However as the one coach noted, recruiting for roster retention and particularly with starters is as important if not more important. The best teams are not trying "to find" a lot of new starters every year...nobody wins big with that type of turnover.
