With National Signing Day on the horizon I figured this would be a good time to catch up on the players who signed in 2009 and 2010.

How many stars did Carlos Hyde have? What was his 40 time coming out of high school? Whatever happened to Jonathon Newsome? Did he extend his playing time? What happened to that defensive end who signed and was shot multiple times?

I'm sure you'll be surprised at some of the overachievers as well as some of the underachievers in these classes.

Below you will find the players who signed and their vitals coming out of high school. You will also see how they ranked with Rivals and ESPN.

Players are listed by star ranking. Five stars are listed first alphabetically, then four stars alphabetically, three stars etc.

Unfortunately, this is one. I have to go to bed and cannot save what I worked on.
Will complete career stats, fix the 2009 graph and add pictures Thursday night.

If you can't live it down for 4 hours, call a doctor

While this may be unfinished, Remy, you compiled a lot of data. It surprised me how many guys left the program for a variety of reasons. It is sad to see careers that have ended due to multiple injuries (Wood, McVey, Griffin) but even more sad for careers that have ended for other reasons (Clarke, Klein, Newsome).

Great work, REMY, and a fine read.
