What percentage of available players are 5* ; 4*; and 3* players.
Does a 3* mean BCS Division caliber?
I am happy how this class is coming together, but the latest Auburn commits and offers are leaning towards 3* players. Is this staff putting speed as a qualifier. One quality I have noticed from these pick ups and offers was SPEED.
I know Auburn will score points in bunches, but I am still concerned with DEFENSE. I am getting the impression the staff change has impacted our defensive recruiting a little.
I don't get it. This staff looks solid to me and I would expect the opposite.
Not Bryan, but if you look at the recruiting rankings, the top teams (which also generally seem to be the teams competing for championships) have considerably more 4* recruits than 3* - typically about 2 to 1. The second tier (where Auburn is currently) have considerably more 3* than 4* recruits. If you look at the teams in this group, they are generally competitive but don't win championships. As you go lower, the teams have almost no 4* players. Of course, there is no science here and this is just a snapshot in time. My personal opinion is that when Auburn reaches the point where we tip the scales and begin signing more 4* than 3* recruits on a recurring basis, we will be back in the championship hunt regularly.
I noticed that too and hope by next year theses coaches will get more 4s
WE COMING . WAR EAGLE !
Lawson, Foster, the Mckenzies etc....... Someone is vetching about the defensive recruiting?

There's way to much luck involved currently in the selection process for a "championship".
