He was as vaunted as they came after his HS career. Seriously, I think we've done brilliantly when you consider Bullard and Fowler's immediate impact.
Stating stars don't mean anything is true in some respects but there's a correlation that can't be denied - teams that win historically are up at the top of these rankings.
Recruiting is just fine. Arguing to the contrary is not seeing the wood for the trees.
I agree, Muschamps recruits have made an earlier impact than our #1 recruited guy Ro Po, who so far hasn't done much for us. I would say Morrison, Fowler, and Humphries have done more as freshmen then he did his first two years. No knock on him, but Muschamps recruits have made immediate impact, star power or not.
