2009 MAC Football Recruiting Report Overview:

Welcome to the 11th annual MAC Recruiting Report by VanDelay Sports. 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-25/30 Ranking(s) seven of the past ten years doing this analysis.


About the 2009 MAC Football Recruiting Analysis

As rankings are subjective, it must be noted that there are very small differences with these classes so therefore they are grouped together by the following ranking tiered categories – Outstanding, Excellent, Very Good and Good. Comments, good or bad, are always welcomed to my Email below.

Final Note: 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 nearly 300 new MAC players - but I certainly did my best. I hope that enjoy one of the most complete and in-depth MAC football recruiting reports anywhere.
