We have ALL 4-Star recruits but 1 out of 9 so far and 3 of those are top 100 players overall in the nation according to Scout.com which is the most consistent recruiting analysis site and has been my entire lifetime. The one ? He is 6′ 4″ wide receiver the # 5 best WR in the state of Georgia from Valdosta. Excuse me but that presents a match-up issue with a QB like Jacob Eason.
Mark Richt averaged # 7 because (1) he did NOT lock-up this state as well (2) because the Elite Prospects especially on the OL wanted to win and knew 68 % win percentage starting 2008 sucks especially at # 45 vs top 15 teams whom Mark Richt simply could no longer beat his last 8 years here losing 18 of 24 such games and (3) because I told you ALL ALONG these last 8 years here that ANY coach would do BETTER than Mark Richt here in recruiting.
We are the # 3 state producing recruits who go on to the Power 5 Conferences.
We should be better than # 7 average as we did with Mark Richt.
And the big bugaboo with Mark Richt was that DESPITE all the talent he got he was an abomination against the top teams his last entire 8 years.
It was in fact too much to bear.
For me anyway.
I was sick and tired of it.
Kirby # 5 in Recruiting today. Alabama and Ohio State are doing slightly better maybe. Clemson is not better than we are but are doing well. Oklahoma is not doing as well and neither is Notre Dame doing as well as Kirby.
Kirby is a better recruiter than Mark Richt who has not recruited a soul from the state of Georgia since we fired him. None. Nada. Zilch.
But if you want to trip the light fantastic about Mark Richt please keep it up. I report such bullshit here.
