2013 Recruiting Map 1.0

Submitted by Rescue_Dawn on August 26th, 2012 at 12:39 AM


Here is a map I put together with the recruiting data found in the "useful stuff" tab.  I made a few of these last year, but this is the first one I have done for 2013.  Mainly because I was using a educational copy with a one year license that expired, but I was able to obtain this one through my works "Home Use Program".  

I included the School where the player commited in the labels.....so if you dont see a school name then the player is uncommited.  Here is a direct link if you want to zoom in for a little more details.  Let me know if I happened to mis anything.  I'll try and put out a few more of these in the upcoing weeks.

It looks like some Tableau views I've created. The program is a great way to visualize large data sets. You can make really big Access databases somewhat understandable in a way that simple statistics just can't.

I thought I had that fixed.......I geocoded each location based on City/State each recruit is from,.  This worked great, but for some reason the software did not like Westwood, MA.....I am going to wait a day or 2 to see if there is anything else thats needs fixed then I'll incorporate all corrections in the next map.  Thanks for spotting that. 

I'll do some more analysis in the next maps incorprating Hokes past classes.

Sometimes, it is easy to forget just how far and wide the staff goes to find the talent that we get. This is a great representation of that very thing and thanks for sharing.

If I counted right, we offered players in 25 states and DC, with some of the biggest contributors being rather unsurprising -  Ohio, California, Texas, Illinois and New Jersey, among others. Now, is it just me or did we grab about half of the recruits in Ohio? It looks like we were similarly successful in Illinois. Very informative.

Must. Lock. Down. Cass Tech.

That school is bursting with D1 players. Can NOT let any of them get to a rival school. Iowa has already managed to put a dent in the armour with two straight years of players.
