Correction? - I think that attendee coach Mike Sanford is from Boise State (not Indiana State)? Sanford is BSU's new OC. I believe that he was planning to attend this camp.

U-PAC,
I would think that the recruiters at Utah put some focus on Instate and Poly. For some players the on campus LDS institute is icing on the cake. Go Utes!

It would be cool for a kid to try out at 10 different schools if he wants a scholarship. The simple fact is that a family can only afford so much and the body can only take so much before it breaks down. If the NCAA would form a way that a whole bunch of schools come to this camp. The biggest ones take the top kids, then smaller schools take the rest. With this format, it's efficient for both kids and coaches. For three days, kids can display their best efforts. 1 in 8 Polynesians play college football versus one in 1000 caucasian kids play college. Makes sense.

UPAC - agreed. The LDS poly kids are really nearly all the LDS kids we have to land. Other than that, I support and think we'll continue to see a shift away from the LDS kids. Now, I'm not saying we'll never have any, I just think it will be less and less of non-poly LDS kids. There are better athletes when we go recruit in Texas and California. There are fewer LDS kids now than there have been on average the past couple decades, and I hope that trend continues. the Utah population just doesn't have the talent compared to Texas and California.

Goooo UTES
