It's interesting that the kids who were at the 4 star level in this class were Ricker, Whitmore, Green, and Washington and none of them ended up contributing. Gloster and Perez were up there too. Scott was close and I'm glad he stayed. Once again, the recruiting rankings aren't always what they're cracked up to be.

2-10 nosedive was in 2009, not 2010.


This is an awesome post - I'd love to see this every year!


Like Scott alluded to, this analysis would be much more interesting if you added the rivals/scout pre-college star rankings so we can see which players exceeded expectations.


I will always maintain that the turnover at recruiting coordinator was the strategic error that caused Friedgen's teams to decline.

Lockley to Franklin to Solazzo in three seasons destroyed continuity and left huge gaps in Maryland's recruiting.
