It looks like we may have to hope for a last minute signing or a flip to get QB help the way mac recruits. We have "settled" with our recruiting status being top 15 type of program or in some circles top ten. Interest at the upper levels just does not seem to be there anymore. Losing Milton really hurt, to a northern team, we need to admit that unless we sign a top level QB in this class, we are now South Carolina, Mississippi State or Ark.
Recruiting evolves around stars, and it starts at the top. This is how many classes that Mac has had to operate without putting together a top 5 class. UGA, with a defensive coach has recruiting 2 5 star QBs....we have Franks....a very talented kid with a rifle who will probably get drilled vs SEC competition in 2017. While the jury is out on Eason, UGA will have another 5 star in competition.....we haven't recruited a 5 star player in any position in years. What does that tell you. The chumpster out recruited mac??????? OMG
Transfers that are other teams leftovers or rejects are there for a reason. Bringing in a decent QB transfer like Zaire might not even be an option.But it still does not solve our problem. And that is Mac. Nice guy, great smile, says the right things, does things the right way.....but we are back to square one...again.
UGA, as bad as they play now is out recruiting us with a coach that looks talks like a feather duster. Still don't know if he can coach, but he beat the snot out of us in recruiting. BTW, if you feel that 2016 was a great class......well in the last minute we were elevated to the top 12-15....the bar was so low.........you get the picture.
The UF brand alone should bring in a top ten class. The brand is diminishing and quickly. UM, Clemson, UL and now even Miami have poached our states best players. While we will be competative, we will never be dominant with the current coaching status. Let the chips fall......glad Fooley will now teach at UF......will he show his students how to recruit a "coach"??????
