Come on you guys… We all knew this was the true reason why he came to UH. Deny all you want, but this was the case even when he first committed.
As long as we are in a G5, this is always going to be the case for us. Being in Houston helps us because transfers want to be closer to their families.
Terrance Williams transferred here because of Coach KB.
Deriq King chose to play at UH instead of TCU because he had a better shot at QB.
The list goes on, but the point is that as long as we are G5… The best talent choose UH for unconventional reasons. It’s not because they actually want to play here. It’s an unfortunate fact.
The IPF is a great thing to add to our toolbox, but it’s not going to be a deciding factor for recruits. We need to be in a P5. We need to have a more attractive campus. We need to continue to improve our academic profile. All of this ties into getting solid recruits. (This is specifically for football by the way.)
I’m still going to cheer on Ed wherever he goes because he was an incredible piece our journey to a P5. I’ll admit though, this piece is not a good look for us.
