    Ok what am i missing with our recruiting?

    Disclaimer: Im not flaming on CPR or saying i know more than he does.....so no need for the Sunshine and Rainbows Jihad to come out......

    But im looking at our football commits....and
    A) Not exactly world beater recruits
    B) Didnt exactly beat out any good teams to get these kids

    Heck...couple had ZERO other offers. Couple others we beat out teams that i wasnt even sure if they had a d1 level program.


    What am i missing? I thought we'd have some good recruiting momentum....im not expecting 4 or 5 star talent....just curious why the length of time to get anyone, but then we get some pretty mediocre players to sign.

    You obviously don't know that CPR is out of gas.

    Good. We have a couple 3 star guys and a couple guys that didn't have recruiting profiles or rankings until we got their commitment.


    A) Not exactly world beater recruits
    and those profile rankings don't mean ****.

    It's a legit question

    but it's a question that's been asked a hundred times already.

    You're not missing anything. But be prepared to get reamed nonetheless.
