. Thought I'd share. "I know this is basically another pile on thread on our recruiting misfortunes of late, but we seem to have a particular problem when it comes to guys who are rated as 5 stars coming out of high school. Here is a list of our 5* guys in the last 10 classes: 2011: Malcolm Brown 2010: Jordan Hicks, Jackson Jeffcoat 2009: Garrett Gilbert, Mason Walters, Alex Okafor 2008: None 2007: Tray Allen, Curtis Brown 2006: Sergio Kindle, Eddie Jones 2005: None 2004: Franklin Okam 2003: Tony Hills 2002: Justin Blalock, Vincent Young, Rod Wright, Bryan Pickryl, Edorian McCullough, Marquis Johnson So that is 18 guys who were rated 5 stars in the last 10 classes. I will exclude Malcolm Brown from the discussion since it is too early to judge him one way or another, but how many of the remaining 17 lived up to their 5 star billing? I would say only 3 really did (Vince, Blalock and Sergio). Some were solid, some got hurt, etc., but a 3 for 17 hit rate on 5 star guys including really only 1 hit since 2002 is really head scratching. What the hell are we doing wrong?" It's funny how puzzled they are.
