Over the long term average, what is the minimum Louisiana recruits we should annually sign
?

I am not referring to any one year, as the talent is different each year.

So far in 2020 class, it will be less than 33%, which is fine given the needs, Louisiana 2020 pool, and the entire Big Picture for 2020.

I am referring to multi-year average minimum FROM Louisiana HS talent base.

So...for a 5-year average, the min should be?

A) 20% or more is fine to craft the signers portion of the LSU roster.

B) 30% or more is fine to craft the signers portion of the LSU roster.

C) 40% or more is fine to craft the signers portion of the LSU roster.

D) 50% (or more) is fine to craft the signers portion of the LSU roster.

Just curious how much "national" we should be.

I fully appreciate that recruiting nationally, as well regionally, is essential...

I am not saying otherwise..


Thanks for your opinion.

Why does there need to a minimum? Get the best players wherever they are. I dont care if they're Louisiana or not.

This is a metric we should not attempt to define nor achieve. Just treat each recruit as an individual and recruit the best whether that live in state or not. I would only give the nod to in state recruits if their evaluation was even with an out of state prospect or some other extenuating circumstances.

Agreed. But that is not the question. That's an individual call.

Best. Players. Available.

Don’t care where they come from as long as they can ball out.

There is not answer - one year the top 10 cb's could be in louisiana & we only have room for 2 - so you move on!

There are advantages to La. recruits. For example more likely to stick to commitment. Logistics are easier and save us time and money. Etc. If it is a toss up, I go La. kid.

It doesn't go by quantity. It goes by quality. Unless you don't give a crap about winning.

The good news is more often than not, Louisiana produces a lot of quality.

We don’t need affirmative action in recruiting too

This is obviously the strategy you want in a vacuum or in the short term, but the recruiting game isn't played in a vacuum nor is it played in the short term.


The point is this: Taking some "minimum" (not a hard minimum, just some general guideline) number of in-state kids is not done with the goal of acquiring the absolute maximum amount of talent in the short term; it's done with the goal of ensuring, down the road, that when there are stacked Louisiana classes, these kids consider LSU as close to a foregone conclusion as possible.


Think of it this way: Imagine there's a theoretical class of Louisiana kids where the top 5 are easy, clear takes, and the next 5 are very good, but ever so slightly less talented than 5 nearly-identical-but-slightly-better out-of-state kids at the exact same positions. And imagine that, after all our definite takes, we have 5 spots left in the class and 10 kids who want to commit--the second 5 Louisiana kids, and the 5 similar out-of-staters. There is an argument to be made that the right decision is taking the Louisiana kids, despite the fact that their out-of-state counterparts are slightly better. The reason is that maintaining the proverbial "fence" around the state is likely to pay off more in the long run than the slight drop-off in talent will hurt in the short run.


So, although i obviously want the BPA as much as anyone else, OP's question isn't actually as stupid as people are making it out to be.

You would trade a 10-20% reduction in talent for 3-6 year in a row.....hoping that it would help to net 2-3 more recruits when Louisiana has an abundance of talent?

Look back at the years before you joined the board and imagine that LSU did exactly what you are proposing. And imagine that, there's a theoretical class of Louisiana kids very similar to what you are proposing. Tell me again how likely that proverbial "fence" around the state is going to be beneficial.

I understand why the OP's question doesn't seem as stupid to you as it does to others.

Hope I never have to work with you. You either can't read or think there should be no minimum tie of Louisiana State University (LSU) to Louisiana players, which is asinine and illogical. So is emotional down voting, btw
