    Just wondering........

    I happened to see a post on a Vol board where a poster was saying that Tennesee had no chance to win the SEC East next year because they would only have about ( 25 ) 4* and 5* players on their roster and no team has won their SEC Division with that few high ranking recruits on their team.

    Now, as to the validity of his statement, honestly, I don't care. Truth is, those rankings have only been coming out for a few years anyway.

    I also know that the number of 4 and 5 star players doesn't always make a huge difference, as there are teams like TCU, Va Tech, Boise State, Miss State, WVU, and others who often do alot with very little. Not to mention the fact that even top-10 teams have many 3-star and lower players who make big plays, become standouts, are huge contributors, and even just provide support, leadership, and the character that makes great teams truly great.

    However, just for Shhhts and Giggles, I'd like to know how many 4 and 5 star players we are going to have on the team going into next season.

    Anyone?

    Arkansas back in 2006 would be a close bet.

    I just checked, and I counted 21 four and five star recruits from 2002 through the 2006 class and I doubt all of those 21 recruits played that season.
