I agree, Al. They probably have a very short history of NFL prospects. But I'm sure that doesn't stop many Division 2 programs from dangling the NFL in front of their recruits.

@apresher: It looks like Missouri S&T was 10-1 last year, and came in second in their conference.  I agree that most of their players are probably not headed for the NFL, but it is a very highly-rated Division II team.

I agree wholeheartedly that this is the kind of recruitment effort we should see more of.

Chuck, MS&T was one of the schools my older son got into.  He ended up going to another engineering school, but MS&T was a close second.  We visited a couple of times and it is a great school and environment for engineering students.  One of the things I hear a lot is how we don't have enough engineers in the US.  I don't believe that, but with the talk about the issues in education in this country, the success of our engineering schools sometimes gets crowded out.  It is good to see a school like MS&T getting the message out.

Chuck, It may be that only a Science and Technology could get away with this kind of promotion to prospective students.  Most of their players are probably not thinking about the NFL. Thanks for the interesting angle on engineering recruitment.
