So from the above list. Is it fair to say that James Morgan was the only player to leave the program with any real value. No other player from the list of past 4 recruiting years is playing at the D1 level with any consistency.? That means we have 4 years of makeup players. Only way to get better is to use the transfer portal.

I read j Wyatt and Can Jeffrey went to New Mexico together and were roommates. Off of some Twitter sites. Not sure so I won't start rumors.

If Morgan were still around he certainly would be the starter and I believe the offense would be far better for it. However I'm glad for his sake he left when he did. He found better play time, better compatibility with coaches, and a law school.

Cam Jefferies followed former BG assistant coach Mike Mickens to UC.

Morgan and Jefferies both left after graduating from BGSU and are now Alums. They earned my respect by leaving only after taking advantage of graduating early. I guess you're correct and wish both Alums well . There was also a young man who went to Alabama to finish his college career. Excluding these two young men, I don’t see any of the others making much noise on the gridiron. I would think that we got rid of all Jinks let over and should be looking at the Portal before the JC route. I don’t want to wait 4 years. It’s hard to recruit when you’re ranked 130th.

Basing my opinion on the number of players BG has sent to the portal to find limited opportunity I question what is available for a program at or near the bottom of D1A. It seems to me the locker too will fill up with recruits who didn’t pan out. Seems JUCO and slow developing HS recruits may get the program back to top more efficiently

Being able to take only 25 guys a season hurting a lot of schools not just BG.

I agree, but if your already at the bottom 130 rank who is going to come to BGSU? 1 or 2 star guys thats it. Indiana took 9 players from the portal and look at what they are doing? Winning! What I'm saying you have to use the portal to BGSU advantage and maybe change the way we recuit HS players. I listened to Luke Fickell and he stated that 80 % of his players are from a 300 mile radius of his univ.. It''s working for Cincy, why not here. Most of the players we have that are long distance don't stay at BGSU.

I would use the portal and get local kids who will stay for the 4 years. Nobody is going to stay 4 years on a losing team. The NCAA has made it easy for the student to leave and go elsewhere. 4 games. Look at Houston QB King and WR. Both are leaving for no reason to go play at Oklahoma. Don't tell me it's about BGSU education, because its not.

Loeffler has stated that recruiting local is key and his first class shows that. Jinks however was incapable of recruiting locally. His final recruiting class had I think only 8 Ohio kids. He was unable to connect with local high school coaches. Loeffler received over 300 personal calls from local coaches congratulating him and also saying please recruit my players. We've talked this topic many times around here about the merits of local recruiting against talented players who have positively impacted the program from Florida and the likes.

The young man who transferred to Alabama was Gehrig Dieter, who had a really nice run here!

Yeah, Coach Loeffler will be getting a LOT of Ohio players...hope to see a ton from the Cleve/Akron/Canton/Ytown area.
