2007 MAC Football Recruiting Report Overview:

Welcome to the ninth annual MAC Recruiting Report by VanDelay Sports. This is another solid group of new MAC prospects. Each team brought in several players that should help their program this fall and beyond. One thing that has become apparent to me over the years is that there is no longer a very big difference between the top classes and the bottom. Every team did well at addressing immediate needs and building overall depth.

Please note that the data you are about to review is a compilation of several published sources. These sources include over one dozen recruiting "guru" publications; newspaper articles, internet sources, personal observations of some players, and information provided by each school’s sports information departments.


Be cognizant of:

  • These young men are anywhere from 17 to 22 years old. Published rankings are quite subjective - many things can happen to a young man in his college-playing career like injuries, academic problems, personal issues, etc. Ultimately, there is no perfect way to accurately assess their playing futures.
  • There are often late bloomers and walk-on’s that rarely show up on the recruiting radar screens only to become all-conference players and sometimes even NFL players. The only way to know how to properly assess a recruiting class is to look at them after four or five years.
  • The "MAC Freshman of the Year Award" winner has been listed in my Top-25 Ranking in five of the past six seasons.

If you see any typing and/or spelling errors, I sincerely apologize in advance. It’s very difficult to read about, view video when available, and report on over 275 new MAC players - but I certainly did my best. Sit back, read and enjoy the most complete and in-depth MAC football recruiting report anywhere.
