posted this link in the threads for offered players but a few mentions of in-state guys without offers.

Right now, Drake has up to six scholarships available.

With the addition of Penn, Drake can sign up to five guys in this class. I could see them going after another JUCO or grad transfer or two if they want to avoid having five freshmen.

right now:
2019 − 3 (McGlynn, Norton, Elligson)
2020 − 2 (A. Murphy, T. Murphy)
2021 − 2 (Thomas, Pilipovic)
2022 − 4 (Robbins, Gray, Wilkins, Penn)
2023 − 1 (Samake)

Penn could win up in 2021 if he wins his appeal to play this year or loses his appeal to not have the semester in 2017 count as a full redshirt. Might even be more likely than 2022.

I love the athleticism of the guys we know they've offered (Samake, Arop, Manning, Grill, Yesufu)

Here's an article from Matthew Bain in the Register that talks a little bit about Drake recruiting.  No real new information, but nice to see him at least mention the Bulldogs.

Interesting that DeVries was out in LA. Has Drake ever really explored that area?

Napoleon Gaither and Greg Johns, two very good players from the mid-70's, were from the LA area as I recall.

Rudy Washington had several players from SoCal.  Phelps had Jordan Daniels and Gary Ricks, Jr.

It seems that we have a large number of new 2019 offers compared to available slots. Perhaps part of the strategy is to persuade top-notch players to make an early commitment to Drake.

I think that's true for every team every season.  Lets say your recruiting a bunch of guys with 10 offers each.....any of those 10 teams has a 1 in 10 chance of getting him.  So, you're gonna get about 1 out of every 10 that you offer (if you're offering guys who have 10 offers).  So, if you have 5 openings, you might need to make about 50 offers.  Now, I know that not everybody Drake is after has that many offers, but you get the idea.

I know we’ve grown accustomed to 5+ players in a class this decade due to bad hires and coaching changes, but it’s actually a pretty big class for most programs.

Also we know more of Drake’s offers than we did for classes 10 or even 5 years ago due to improved coverage and social media.

I thought Ricks was SoCal. So no high school players from that area in a while.

None that I can think of in the last 20 years.  But, there's no guarantee that DeVries was looking at players from that area.  I'm sure whatever tournament he was at had teams from all over the country.

I glanced through old rosters on Drake's website....Daddy Ugbede was from LA area.

The Iowa Barnstormers were out there, OSA out of Omaha (which Devries son plays for and their older teams have some very talented players) were also out in LA. It wasn't California teams only. A big ADIDAS tournament with teams from across the country.  The major tournaments were in LA / Milwaukee / K.C. for sure were three big ones with Midwest teams.  Open period some teams based on shoe contract, Milwaukee can be teams from anywhere not tied to shoe company tournament.

It looks like Verbal Commits now lists Montrell Horsey as a 2019 Drake offer rather than 2018. Apparently he hasn't received an offer he likes and wants to wait a year. I'd be surprised if Drake has any actual interest in signing him since his offer came from the prior team of coaches.

It got buried a bit but DUB mentioned in Horsey’s thread that he thinks he’s probably going to prep school.

Don't know that we ever officially offered, but I know we'd been following him - Cole Henry of Osky committed to UNI last night.
