In the first 10 minutes after I posted the new recruits in the football forum the were 15-20 views and the first thirty minutes after posting in the recruiting forum there were 3-5 views.

I really like the recruiting forum as an archive for recruiting information but I'd much rather be debating how good Amone and Wolford are and whether they will be better than Ah Ching and Pauu, than trying to tell TH what to do with the ESPN money.

Just my 2cents but I'd leave them in the football forum and archive them in the recruiting forum to improve viewership.
It's more work for the mods, to use it as a repository that way, but what happens when new info shows up for the same recruits? Do we start a new thread in the football area and then let you worry about consolidating? We also lose information that may have been posted by the fewer people who DO go directly to the reruiting

I've been thinking about this as well and I kind of miss having recruiting information in the topical areas themselves. I do like the idea of a repository, but mixing basketball and football doesn't seem to be the best solution, I kind of liked the recruiting lists we used to peg at the top of the topical areas themselves.

I guess I just miss having all the football info in the football section. Something like that.

The problem is as you have said. Information posted in individual topics in the football and basketball forums quickly gets lost to the past. Having a single recruiting thread helped, but even then it quickly got huge and who is going to scan through 40 pages of recruiting thread talk to find information about a specific player.

I'm not sure what the right answer is, and I'm certainly open to suggestions.

Can you have the same thread show in both locations? Then after a week of no comments have it removed from the football section.

Don't you think Amone might be better as a safety? He was a LB, so he's a hard hitter. He's a bit smaller, but that leads me to believe he's got a bit more speed. Those sound like safety traits to me.

Anybody know anything about this Justice Alo kid from St George? He's a defensive end, an eighth grader, with national recognition already. Has BYU looked at him?

Bryan Engstrom, a new walkon to BYU Football reminds me of John White of the U of U football team. Even though he is only 5' - 9 he is fast, decisive and strong. He can find a hole in the line so fast and accelerate with such speed that defensives cannot handle his athletism. Just watch the following games and see for yourself against the best teams in the state.

He can squat 535 pounds and only weighs 175 pounds. Don't believe it, Watch for yourself.

Could this kid be a Di Luigi with power/leg drive? I assume he had to lose weight to get in the 175 pound class.

The kid has some moves. Is he planning on serving a mission? If not, I don't see him beating out williams and Hine.
