Yeah if you look at all the big guys this year they each have a different primary guy consisting of either Huff, Scott, or Kelly. But coach Flood is listed as secondary for all of them. Without insider info it’s hard to know how much of a role he played in pulling in these guys this year. I know on paper this is our best offensive line class.I have to question this just a bit. I've heard that argument about Stoutland over the years but don't our coaches recruit areas of the country and not positions? If we didn't sign a particular offensive linemen was that Stoutland's fault or the coach that was recruiting that player? Perhaps he had a problem identifying who to go after? All I know is he is a heckuva offensive line coach and I would welcome him back with open arms assuming there wasn't some internal issue that we don't know about. We have some coaches on staff who are great at recruiting so let them be the primary recruiters.
Having said that I would be happy with a coach as good as Stoutland, and there’s no telling what may have led to some of those misses in recruiting when he was here. Plus, we’ll get our guys just being who we are more often than not.
