Not casting judgement (yet), just asking.
This was just about the typical recruiting class under the old staff. There were certainly years that we did better, but most were like this.
Sean Fitz, who runs Lions247, said he thought we would easily have had a "top 10" class if it weren't for the sanctions.
I posted two articles over in The Locker Room. O'Brien and the staff have been to pretty much every school in PA who plays football. O'Brien is also all over the place making speeches, which he's supposedly pretty good at doing. The staff is working tirelessly, and seems to be pretty darn organized with what they are doing. And, even kids who go elsewhere are praising O'Brien and our staff when asked about PSU. If not for the sanctions, I have no doubt that we would have had a roster with "top 5" talent within 4-5 years.
