I would initially target post-graduate transfers from P5s and G5s. They can come immediately and provide experience and leadership. Think Kody Russey. There will be demand for P5 players and the competition will be less for G5 players. Pitch to those G5 players this is their chance to impress NFL scouts against better competition.
I hope the staff has identified who they intend to target and puts on a full court press. It will be interesting to see if the NIL strategy has changed since last season.
Additionally, almost everything I have read about players in the portal indicates that the quality is in the skill position players and that line help is very hard to find and often goes to the highest bidder.
Lot of people still don’t understand that’s it’s strictly $$ that drives recruiting. If we signed a bunch of high school kids and they are really good, there would be bigger schools offering way more $$ to pull them away.
This is why I am curious if UH has changed its NIL strategy from last year’s lessons learned. It seemed like this board was living and dying with every potential transfer that named UH in the Spring, only to get disappointed. If you have a solid OL and DL, everything else in those units seem to perform better. Since Paul is leaving for the draft, getting a LT is numero uno.
