By  |  2 Comments

PAC12 2014 roster and recruiting distance from home chartThe PAC-12 2014 roster heat map breakdown.  The hotter the color, the greater the number of guys on PAC-12 rosters come from that area.   It’s no shock to see the LA area is the monster and all the major metro areas of the PAC-12 are hit hard.

Observations:

  • Unlike the other conferences, the PAC-12 teams reach way outside their conference area to find players, especially into Texas.
  • Stanford and Oregon lead the conference and the nation with both having their average guy on their 2014 roster over 1,000 miles from home.
  • Before McIntyre, the Buffs signed very few guys from their state. The focus on in-state guys and increased LOIs from Colorado show up in the numbers.
  • Unlike most of the other Major conferences [P5], half of the PAC-12 teams had a lower metric per guy for their 2014 class versus the 2014 roster.
  • USC, with a new coaching staff, pulled way back from their average recruiting distance and stayed much closer to home.
  • The Utes went waaayyyyy outside their comfort zone and recruited guys, on average, nearly double the distance than the average on their 2014 roster.
