Tomorrow is a big day at SBU as it's their annual 7 on 7 competition and many very good teams from the tri state will be in attendance and then once that is completed many future SBU recruits will make their cay to the campus to show off their talents in the prospect camp this is the third one and there will be three more to follow

According to Brian McLaughlin. Hero Sports, tweeted, ElON Just signed 5 hot recruits and 3 had FBS offers from big schools, and more to come... If ELON, who is still new to the FBS can garnish star players, why cant SB football do this. It all comes down to coaching. Chuck Priore needs to change things up with his staff and find some big names assistants who can recruit .

I follow some FCS fan page groups on FB and and people are all over the country talking about their FCS teams and news that relate to the FCS. Nobody every talks or brings up SB football.I am the only one who will bring up some topics about SB football. But, they will talk about every other CAA team . This is a shame. If SB wants to make a name for themselves in football then they need to start making noise and get loud. This will only happen with a coaching change and bring in new staff.. Follow ELON approach coach P if you want to get recognized!!!!!!

Elon is FCS lol. I think you meant new to the CAA? Or perhaps new to actually having a team with a pulse....

The thing with our recruiting this year will be this; Coach P hasn't had his contract renewed as this truly is a make or break season for him. In my mind, we'd need another playoff appearance (7-8 wins) in order to retain him since the schedule is much harder and a lot of our talent has graduated. This year will be a real test for Coach P and his staff. Until we know if we're renewing his contract or not, we're going to have a hard time recruiting players since no kid is going to want to commit to a school where they don't even know who the coach will be.

And while we're on the subject of recruiting, JMU has gotten several 3* commits and FBS transfers into their program. Their current team could probably win CUSA this year if they were FBS, so they're positioned to run this conference for a long time. Only way that changes is if an ACC school poaches their coach.

Typo, Elon is FCS not FBS. I think you know that already.

I agree with you that star players wont take chance on SB if they dont know if their HC will be around next season or not.

SB had an easy schedule last year. This year not so much so. I am not expecting only one loss again for us in the CAA. We could go easily go 6-5 or 5-6. and miss the playoffs. Is that enough to renew coach P contract? Time will tell. Something inside my gut tells me SB can go 1-10 and coach P contract will still be renewed.

Star players who have multiple FBS offers from Power Conferences keep on rolling for ELON.. It all comes down to recruiting and the coaches who reach out to these athletes.

No one for the 2019 class can sign until December 22 (I believe) 2018 you can verbally commit but can't sign until then

When the 2019 classes become official we will then see how many of these verbal commits stay with Elon and how many get flipped to FBS Schools

Good point Campi.. I'll try and check in from time to time to see who stays and who goes..

Another team that gets Star players and Power 5 transfers is JSU. They recently got a 4 star graduate LB from Kentucky who could have been a starter for Alabama and has NFL aspirations..

The SBU Coaches don't like to identify verbal commits they would rather have the player put it up on twitter himself

just curious- at this level, is that less common? 
There are 29,413,039 corporations in America; but only one Chairman of the Board.

I think it's actually an NCAA violation for the coaches to announce verbal commitment before the student signs a national letter of intent. Almost all the high school kids these days announce their commitment on twitter and instagram though.

We did finish 2nd in the CAA last season .  The first time we played UNH was when we  were still in the  NEC .  They crushed us at UNH 62 -7 so we have improved in he last 10-12 years .  12 th . is about right for now we beat UNH  last year and just lost to Delaware.

Just as an FYI, there is not such thing as a "verbal" commit in the eyes of the NCAA-so there can be any infraction. Until the NLI and the binding financial documents have been signed players can "commit" their undying love for a School and the program all they want. The only "commit" that counts is the NLI. Heck coaches even will over commit on the amount of scholarships available in an upcoming year leaving kids to get caught up with trying to find another school when the coach goes with someone else (thus the joke when coaches "offer" an 8th grader).
