    We have not been outside the top 15 in recruiting since 2006. How spoiled are we?

    I took a peek at the 2005 class that ranked on average about 20th:
    Kyle Anderson TE, 6-6, 260, Woodlands, Texas*
    Darry Beckwith LB, 6-1, 225, 4.5, Parkview Baptist
    Ciron Black OL, 6-5, 325, Tyler, Texas
    Harry Coleman LB, 6-2, 215, West ST Mary**
    Ricky Jean-Francois DE, 6-3, 260, Carol City, Florida
    Chris Hawkins DB, 6-1, 175, Walker, Louisiana
    Lyle Hitt DE, 6-3, 275, Parkview Baptist
    Trindon Holliday ATH, 5-7, 170, 4.27, Zachary, Louisiana
    Max Holmes C, 6-5, 270, Parkview Baptist**
    R. J. Jackson RB/ATH, 5-11, 196, 4.4, Houston Westside
    Alfred Jones DE/DT, 6-3, 240, ST Augustine of NO
    Sammy Joseph CB, 6-1, 190, from Colorado to LSU
    Steve Korte FB/LB, 6-2, 232, Fontainebleau HS *
    Brandon LaFell WR, 6-2, 185, 4.5, Houston Lamar
    Ryan Perrilloux QB, 6-3, 210, E ST John*
    Chase Pittman DE, 6-5, 270, from Texas to LSU
    Antonio Robinson RB, 6-1, 210, , Winnfield, LA*

    Not too shabby!

    It was 20th due to a small class. But the average star rating was top 5 easily.

    Smaller classes were common back in the day.
    Top 5? No way
    1-5 star -- 6-4 stars-- 5-3stars
    Did not realize Ciron Black, Lafell and Holiday were all three stars.

    They don't really know how to rank linemen. Highlight reels are....highlight films. Everyone looks good. I think coaches have to see them in person and against known opponents. I bet we get some real good ones developed down the road. Lots of eggs in the football recruiting basket.

    The best player from that class may have been Ciron Black - 3 star recruit.
