Bucknell has some local guys, but if you look at Paulsen’s 15 recruits over his five years, it’s fairly geographically diverse:

Pennsylvania 2

Minnesota 2

Michigan 2

Texas 2

New Jersey 2

Illinois 1

Canada 1

Tennessee 1

North Carolina 1

Maryland 1


From what I’ve seen and heard of Bucknell’s recruiting, the great majority of the early scouting of these guys is at AAU tournaments.   That may be followed by visits to the High school to watch an individual or small group workout.   Also feedback from the recruit scrimmaging your players during on-campus visits.     Coaches usually don’t watch many H.S. games – and if they do, it’s often just for show, not to try to evaluate the player.
