The players seem to love Bielema and his staff and that he is a personable guy but still means business. He put together a HELL of a staff and has been recruiting extremely well. We've been on the radar for so many high recruits that we weren't an afterthought to a month and a half ago. He's locked some of thsoe guys in (Koehler, Skipper) and has a VERY good chance with some others (Collins, Kirkland, Lacy, Johnson). This class was never going to turn out to be stellar given the year of non-recruiting and shittastic coaching, but it is looking like it is going to be as good as it possibly cold have been. He's also gtting a head start on 2014 and has handed out a good amount of scholarships and been in contact with a lot of 2014 players. 2014 is looking like it could be a monster recruiting year. We've already got a 4* DT and a 4* dual threat QB who is being recruited by everybody and could possibly end up a 5*. And one of the top DTs in the country is from Arkansas and considered a Hog lock but just hasn't committed yet, which is annoying his momma.
