    Says that he doesn't know if a Top 10 recruiting class is possible at Okie Lite and that he believes they wasted a lot of time & got distracted chasing the stars only to almost always lose out on them in the end.

    Good approach for them. They had a ton of success, got the big donor and facilities, and quickly lost their way.

    “We would get in a little bit but we didn’t finish. So right, wrong or indifferent, we’ve gone right back to: Know your area, find out who’s out there, this is what we’re looking for to fit our system,” Gundy said. “Do they like to play football? Do they have respect for themselves, which gives them a chance to be successful? Then, do they fit what we’re looking for. Do we believe in them? If so, we’re going to go for them.”
