It appears that we are hammering the state hard, and I can't say that I don't absolutely love it. Reports are out that we have offered two 2015 kids (the QB and Osa Masina, a highly touted OLB) and obviously are all over Star Jr. If you compare this to what we do instate, we rarely lose the kids that we offer early. However, if other big fish come in after kids right away as well (Natter this year, Hardy a few years ago come to mind) it seems to make it more of a battle. I think us throwing our hat into the ring now on these 2015 kids gives us a legitimate shot with some can't miss prospects, something I can't remember saying during BBs tenure.
It will be interesting to see how the new staff handles the offers for instate kids. BB seemed to slow play the offers to the big time prospects
Uhhh, 3 years ago maybe. They wanted to hold till camp, then till junior day, and the last year they offered summer between so. and jr. year. As soon as the rest of the world realized the quality of players in state and began offering early, we changed.

BUCKNUTS 21 self trolling.
2014 we were definitely more aggressive. Its hard to say if it was due to the quality of 2014 instate, a philosophy change, or a combination of both. All other years, however, he went the slow play route. 2014 does look to be the best instate class we've had since I've started following recruiting - I'm sure some other posters can probably shed more color on that subject though.
Yah, and they offered Melvin Gordon at junior day which was 4 months earlier than ever before. They changed too slow imo, but the last 3 years they were forced to treat instate guys just like out of state guys as far as offers. I think this is bad for UW, as seeing them at camp when their 17 is so valuable, but it had to be done.
