Apologies in advance if this seems obvious to those who follow recruiting closely but...
Pre-Urban departure, I've been wondering for a bit how we look for this year's recruiting class:
- Compared to the last few years it seems we have fewer "in the fold," but a similar quality of those who are.
- Not at all saying that's a bad thing - Urban always had a rep as a closer - but what I didn't have a sense of is whether there were the 7-8 four or five star guys almost certain to sign and give us a top five class or whether it is more of a question mark in terms of if we were going to end up more Top 15 vs. Top5.
Regardless of what #2 was, the transition creates uncertainty.
So how are we looking? Take a top 5 class to the bank? Not likely this year? Expect top 15 and be happy with Top 10 if we get there? Or no one knows anything, check back in a month.
