An early look at MAC recruiting

It's way too early to analyze or rank 2008 recruiting classes in the MAC.
In fact, only Bowling Green has received a commitment so far.
However, we can tell how many scholarship offers each team has made, according to Rivals.com.

    1. Akron - 28 2. Toledo - 20 3. Miami - 19 4. EMU - 18 5. Temple - 16 5. CMU - 16 7. Ball State - 14 8. Bowling Green - 12 8. WMU - 12 10. Buffalo - 8 10. Northern Illinois - 8 12. Kent - 7 13. Ohio - 4

What does that mean?
One of two things: 1) The teams at the top are more active (or aggressive) so far. 2) Every team has offered a similar amount of scholarships. The teams at the top, however, have offered them to better players. The lesser players are not listed in Rivals' database.
Either way, the data indicate Akron is on its way to another recruiting class near the top of the conference.
