Is it just me or is IU's next recruiting cycle way too quiet? I'm not sensing any sort of momentum right now -- those of you in the know, is this just par for the course this time of the year or is it abnormally low?

Its low, for sure.. I'm wondering/thinking/hoping.... 

We are going to start saving a substantial amount of scholarships and resources for the transfer portal. 

In my opinion, us taking a true FR and them staying 4 years and developing into a star/stud for us, seem pretty low. Or lower than a lot of program. 

Maybe go more into the portal route? Spitballing, obviously. I am also completely unsure how many scholarships we will have.

It certainly appears like a specific choice and strategy is in place, even if it hasn't been articulated to the public.

There's no doubt that accepting transfers from other, high profile schools is intriguing, but I still feel that getting commitments from stud HS players reinforces a message that IU is a destination.

There are a few players who like to go against the grain and take a flyer on an 'outsider' program, but by and large, most players want to go somewhere that has energy, momentum and other good players seeking the same thing.

it's optics and perception. Hopefully CTA and co. didn't lose it.

Article in this morning's FW Journal Gazette quoting CTA that this year's class would be small--between 12-15 as a result of players getting an extra year due to the pandemic.
