Couldn't agree more Tom.
Think back to last year when Urban retired prior to the signing period.
Recruits would never forgive a coach for doing that --- AND the NCAA has allowed athletes to transfer based on that happening so the right thing for Hafley to do was to announce this before the early signing period.
I hope we can keep all the DBs, but guess what, OSU will be just fine with the ones that have already announced they are coming.
Keeping Watts, Cavazos is huge as they will be playing on the outside. A slot corner is critical as well, but outside corners are even more important.
