I have a non-snarky question for the class.
I know Kirby thinks it’s a big deal, but when I see the occasional poll of recruits about what factors are important in choosing a football program, there are all kinds of things cited, like education, proximity to home, bonding with staff, opportunity to win championships, preparation for a pro career, etc. But one thing I’ve never seen on a list is fan turnout at a spring game.
So, just wondering… how much do you think it matters? Is it something that a recruit makes a priority, something that maybe is a tiebreaker in a close call, or simply something nice to note?
