I try to remain level headed through the ebb and flow of recruiting. It helps when Urban is the coach and you know at the end of the day you are going to end up with 20-25 absolute studs. However some others are not as patient which begs the question:
Would you rather:
- Have the entire recruiting class finished closed with 20ish players (of good quality) completed BEFORE the start of the football season, or
- Have a continual recruiting season, where we might have some down times and good times including a mad rush of flips/late commits/late decommits/and overall craziness during the end of January and beginning of February. (Similar to 2013 class with Bell, Smith, Jacobs)
In this hypothetical, Option 1 does not allow for any changes after the season starts. If a kid blows up we can't go after him. If a current player leaves for the draft we can't then go after his position. Also this Option assumes that we won't miss out on a kid because of their announcement date. However for Option 2, as it states, nothing is set in stone and we might gain or lose players throughout the recruiting process.
