It wasn't a national championship caliber class and late targets failed. We ended up scrambling for sleeper defensive tackles instead of multiple top tier kids locked up.Can we keep it real...it was the #9 class in the country. It was good...but lets pump the brakes on claiming it was something to hold up as a standard in comparison to this disaster of a class. It wasn't like he was getting the #1 recruiting class in the country, which Randy did, FWIW. It was a nice, solid class after a good season...but to be fair, that class didn't finish particularly strong nor did it have the top South Florida talent as they for the most part went elsewhere.
Definitely an improvement but we needed to do progressively better than that. Instead this group may essentially nullify last year.
Jim Harbaugh's situation is what we need to mirror. He fell off into the 20s last year after two groups well within the Top 10. The difference between Ohio State and Michigan's recruiting last season was shocking. But this year Michigan has rebounded back to prior range.
