We also recruited Clowney, Jernigans, etc. Recruiting people means nothing, we probably will have recruited 200+ kids this year when all is said and done. Those West coast guys are usually pipe dreams.

I agree that we need to keep kids like Bernard, Watkins, and Bridgewater though. Merrill Noel was a 5'8" CB that Shannon would never have recruited (he was a RS FR so in the 2010 class)
