Certainly not for many recruits. A lot of top recruits care only about getting to the NFL. Some want to play right away or close to home so their parents can come up for games. Some consider getting a degree from a top school important as the majority of athletes do not make it to the pros and many get injured in college So basically schools emphasize what their strength is. If you are a school that has great academics like UF you highlight that. If you are school like Bama that gets a lot of athletes to the pros you emphasize that. Some schools have more than one attribute like Bama which has NFL, head coach and facility things to brag about. Bama recently has higher turnover in assistant coaches and don't be surprised if their defensive coordinator gets fired. UF can emphasize to top south Florida athletes that we have better academics, are closer to home and have put many players in the NFL also. With many of Mullen's assistants being with him for much longer than most other team's assistant coaches that may appeal to some recruits. Bottom line is you emphasize your strength and one of UF's is academics and our Farrior academic center. Many recruits could care less about academics and will like other things that UF offers. However, to not highlight one of your strengths to recruits that other schools cannot offer is not wise. In December of 2021 we will finally be able to talk about a stand alone football center as a strength. Been a long wait.
