A lot of offers were sent out at camps which is good despite the players being lowly ranked

More than half of those kids have us as their only P5 offer

Hope they’re good salt grinders. Maybe even a little zirconium

Don’t look now guys but we just landed an unranked defensive lineman from Alabama. I’m still shocked at how Luke managed to beat out Kansas, Tulane, Southern Miss, and Jacksonville State for this guy

Don't worry. He will sign a kid that's a borderline 4 star on Rivals and his blind supporters will say "SEE!?!? LUKE CAN 'CRUIT ELIIIIITE TALENT!"

I don’t really see an excuse for it at this point. I’m not saying I expect Luke to recruit the caliber players that Freeze did (yes I know Freeze missed on a lot of targets before people remind me) but hell, he could at least recruit kids with other power 5 offers. About half our class is made up of kids with no other power 5 offers. Maybe 1 of those will be diamonds in the rough that end up as high 3/ low 4 stars that other major programs actually want

Its June man. Half these guys that was there first camp this year. We just got another recruit at LB who is unranked but has a offer from Tennessee, SC, and A&M. This staff knows what they are doing.

Even if you don't like Luke, Bicknell, Rich Rod, Mac, Nix all know SEC talent. Once again its June. Unlike Freeze, Luke seems to know how to fill a class with depth not just stars.

Based on what? Luke and the coaches from last year who sucked w/ best qb/wr combo in the SEC? The fact that our new OC and DC got run out of the last jobs they had?

Meanwhile...

2019
Jerrion Ealy 5*
Danni's Jackson 4*
J. Mingo 4*
Lakia Henry 4*
Darius Thomas 4*
John Rhys Plumlee 4*

Thats a year after being 5-7 and first year after a two year bowl ban. You guys act as if this last class was trash. Surely it could have been better. But these guys are doing fine.

Name the last time we had a class that beat Alabama twice, was consistently in the top 10 and won the Sugar Bowl.

Luke can't hold Freeze's jock strap when it comes to recruiting or coaching. Freeze's first full recruiting class was a top 5 class. And that was after taking over a 2-10 team.

So we just ignore the entire two post of showing the stars of those classes in most cases didn't pan out...

There’s really no point in arguing with people over recruiting stars in June. Don’t forget that the recruiting sites created a profile for a fake player and gave him a mid-high 3 star rating just last year. All based on a twitter profile.
