They pretty much still take Studs and leave.Pretty much......the top teams in general do that. If DJ Ivey went to OSU he would be DJ Ivey not Malcolm Jenkins. That's just what I believe. Teams come in here take who they want and leave.....it happened back in the day to but now evals are way better. Back then we had the best evals and others didn't know wtf they were doing. Now it's the opposite....they always got who they wanted but now they are relatively accurate.
Mannny has done a solid job getting better classes, and signing more South Florida talent:
With that said Florida paid up and took Jason Marshall, Bama paid up and took Jacorey Brooks and Dallas Turner, and Clemson grabbed Marcus Tate. You could make an argument those 4 plus James and Leonard were the top 6 players in South Florida this cycle.
All 4 of those STUDS that left South Florida would more than likely start at Miami in 2022. If Zion leaves early, you wouldve inserted Tate. We lose our top 3 CB's insert Marshall, that is how you replace talent keep moving without dropping off.
