Of the new notable head coaches with a full year under their belt it appears only Kirby is a hot recruiter. As of 1-4-16 on rivals
Georgia is #3 nationally and #2 in the SEC. Winner
S Carolina is #14 and #6 in the SEC
Miami is #21 and #3 in the ACC
USC is #16 and #1 in the Pac12
Not in the top 25 are Virginia Tech and Virginia. Fail. It appears Fuente will try to mimic Frank Beamer by over achieving. That will be difficult with six ACC teams ahead of him. I really thought Fuente would do better with his Rep and going to the ACC CG this year. That surprises me.
Mendenhall is not doing any better at Virginia than at BYU and I am certain his seat will be really hot next season.
The winner looks to be Kirby Smart. I suppose Miami and USC could be considered a win by being #3 and #1 in their conference.
