BGN Podcast: WVU Summer Recruiting

As West Virginia's final summer football camp looms this weekend, Kevin Kinder and Jonathan Martin examine some of the trends of the recruiting season to date and discuss attendees and more at the final event.

West Virginia has gotten commitments from two quarterbacks in the class of 2015, and both are similar, though not identical, in terms of skill sets and abilities. We examine that decision and how it might play out down the road, and also look at a pair of in-state quarterback prospects that would bring an entirely different dynamic to the position where they to attend WVU. Both are scheduled to be in attendance at West Virginia's final 2014 summer football camp this weekend.

Also in this edition of the recruiting podcast, discussion on how coaches look to fill out the recruiting board each year, and some of the dynamics that can make estimated numbers at each position (and overall) shift as the year plays out.

Finally, we discuss an interesting series that's underway by Allen Trieu of Scout.com. In his Coaches Breakdown collection, Trieu gets input from coaches across the nation on what they look for when recruiting players at each position on the field. Three articles are already in the books, and they are well worth a read!
