    5 WR's, 2 DE's, 2 OL, 3 DB's, a very good athlete, and an excellent RB... good balance, addressing needs.

    I'm liking it so far.

    For the folks caught up in stars, Wells is now a four start on Yahoo and ESPN, and Hammond is a four star on ESPN, and looking at his film, he's definitely a four star athlete.

    LB Vosean Joseph is now a four star on ESPN and in the ESPN 300. He is still 3* in other rankings, but has offers fom Arky, USCe, Syracuse and USF as well as ome smller D1 schools.

    Isaiah Johnson is also a four star on ESPN but not other rankings.

    Spencer Perry is getting offers from a lot of big achools including the Bucknuts, ND and Meatchiicken, and Muschamp is trying to flip him to Auburn. He will move o a four star.

    Tyrek Tisdale also has a growing offer list including the Bucknuts and USCe. He may end up a four star as well.

    Just posting this for infomation. Seems our coaches have a good eye for spotting talent that others haven't yet spotted. Seven or eight of our current commits should be four star by signing day based on the ones already rising.

    Shannon's right , forget the number of stars because the staff looks at the players and not their star rating. Get the right players, coach them up and then turn them loose. Like SOS said "how come Georgia gets all the best HS recruits but we beat them every year?" Look at what Mac has done with WM's recruits.
