    What can we take away from this year's recruting rankings ...

    Since it seems that everything is pretty much wrapped up for the 2019 recruiting season, though it would be interesting to take a deeper look at the results nationally:

    • The PAC 12 only has one team in the top ten, the next team is Washington at 15 (ESPN, 17 on 247Sports)

    • SEC West continues to be loaded with talent with Bama, TAMU and LSU boasting top 5 teams

    • The SEC ends up with 5 teams in the top 10 ... the next conference is the Big 12 with two.

    • This is the first time since 2010 the Ohio State doesn't have a top ten recruiting class.

    • USC has 0 5-stars in this class.

    • UM is the only B1G team in the top ten

    • Oregon has the first top ten class in over 10+ years The next highest ranking was 12(?) in 2010

    • This is the first top ten class for UF since 2014

    Anyone see anything else that stands out?

    We have a signing day curse. I think we lose more than we win here lately. I'm not complaining about the class, just that it seems we fizzle out on signing day.

    Staff turnover probably hurt more than many realize.....................that as well as playing time and negativity across the league..............

    Its all relative honestly ... all I can say is we today have the number one class and have been in the top ten with recruiting for almost a decade. There are going to be programs that have wins that look bigger than what they are but the key is can they sustain it like CNS has in the midst of staff turnover and attrition to the NFL?

    We've done good at filling a majority of our needs in sustaining where others are either trying to get talent or develop depth. Only Clemson, OSU are arguably the only two programs that have similar level of depth (and mind you I said depth ... not talent). Its several programs that have a good range of talent but not depth.

    I understand the perception but we did sign three high rated 4 star players today at need positions. That is more of a bang than a fizzle. Could have been better...could have been worse but overall, very, very nice class indeed.

    You mean the day Trey Sanders, Evan Neal, and Ish announced they’re going to Bama?

    Staff turnover has damaged our ability to land recruits but landing a #1 or #2 under these circumstances is hard to be upset about. Bottom line is we need to do a better job of taking the mid level recruits and getting mileage out of them. We had too many guys sitting on the bench last year. We need to develop these guys. I realize they have to earn their way on the field. but part of that is coaching.

    We crushed it. Saban took his hatred of the early signing period and shoved it down their throats

    Precisely....................which is why I aint complaining..............

    And I agree with bamaslammer, in that I'd love to see the mid level players developed and get more playing time.

    Well, you can say we had the number one recruiting class. And yes, it does take a little of the bloom off the rose, when you don't get a couple of guys at the end you really wanted. But we got what we needed, and got a lot of very good players. I just hope we can keep coaches around long enough to insure the players proper development.
