Just wanted to see what people thought about Chizik's ability to recruit compared to Mac's. I know most people are sour on Chizik and like Mac, but lets hear your honest opinions.
I think when Mac lost some good assistants his recruiting and record suffered causing him to recruit Juco's. That left his team's pretty shallow his last couple of years.
I think Chiz's 2008 class is the best overall class that we have had in the last 5 years. Here are most of the players that contributed and their class.
2008(true freshman) - Benton, Darks, S. Johnson, L. Johnson, Mahoney
2007 - dont know who's class to call this because of the job switch.
2006 (redshirt soph, true Juniors)- Arnaud, Lamaak, Parker, ARob, McDowell
2005 - (redshirt Jun, Seniors) James Smith, Chris Singleton, Marquis, Catlett, Reggie Stephens
2004 - (redshirt Seniors) Chris Brown, RJ, Scales, Travis Ferguson
I didnt count any JC guys because they only help for a short time and they didnt affect this last year. Look at how few of kids played out of the 2004 and 2005 classes, which should have been our seniors.
