Recruiting analysis

We've always thought and said that college football recruiting is best in an area where talent is nearby.

Thus, it should be easier for LSU to sign a player from Baton Rouge than Birmingham. It should be easier to sign a player from New Orleans than Newark. But as you go out farther from your school's location, the degree of difficulty begins to increase.

There is statistical evidence to back up this theory. You can find it here . I don't think it's an earth-shattering story. But it does back up the importance of closing off the borders in your own state.

Miles knows that he has to maintain the fence that Saban put up around the state of LA, but LSU may lose a player like McKnight occasionally.
