Last year we took 16 in-state guys. This year we already have 11 local boys with verbals. Before last year we normally averaged around 10 Louisiana players a year if I remember correctly. I couldn't access the numbers from years' past for some reason to give exact counts. I know we had an exceptional abundance of talent in LA last year, but the early offers to LA boys this year has me wondering if there is more to it. I know we aren't going to pass up 5 star talent from out of state, but I think maybe we are judging the talent in our backyard a little differently. Since the rise in local signings seems to correspond with Wilson's arrival, it is only natural to wonder if he is influencing it. What do you think?
