    The Good:
    Brock - 4* G = 84
    Fields - 4* SS = 84
    Hill - 5* WR = 82
    Slaughter - 5*T = 81
    Woods - 4* QB = 82
    Stanley (JC-JR) - 3* FB = 82

    The Bad:
    None really. I fours and threes in the high 70's down to the high 60's - all pretty much what I expected, and I got the real talent where I really needed it.

    Pretty happy with my 3-stars:

    SS Jason Miller (78 OVR) with 95 Hit Power
    MLB Larry Thomas (76 OVR) with good speed (84), strength (81), and tackling (76) for a FR
    DE Justin Gray (77 OVR) with good skills across the board aside from speed.
    QB Paul Turner (75 OVR) with speed /acceleration (84/87) and a decent arm (87). Needs to improve accuracy (71). To be red-shirted.

    Those guys will develop. It's the three stars that keep you relevant. Pick them wisely, and you'll do well.

    I think I remember Brown having sick speed for a safety.

    Miller's 90-something press rating will be sexy in the 4-2-5. Love it.

    Looking forward to having a full year to recruit now ..

    These guys sure came in handy. I got three starters, a big special teams guy, my quarterback of the future, and 3/5 of my next O-line. Doesn't get much better than that. If I get another big class this year, the Irish are going to make some noise in a couple years.

    You are welcome Arch...I put a bit of time into that class...

    On the bright side my 5* DE is rated 84 with 80 speed. I also have some great olineman, two tackles that are 80+ and a guard rated 80.

    FYI - JPWalker came in at a 78. He's a bit slow, but big guys come in handy. He may become a TE if he puts on some weight.

    Lets see how LSU did...

    We signed three 5* recruits. These were...

    HB Scott Simpson. He ended up being 84 OVR with 98 SPD / 96 AGI / 99 ACC/ 94 ELU / 88 SPM / 89 JKM. Luckily he has 85 STA and 88 INJ. BOOM!
    DT Chad Thomas. He ended up being 82 OVR with 85 STR / 82 TAK / 79 POW / 85 PWM / 88 FSM / 79 BSH. He'll start on the DLine in the 4-3. BOOM!
    CB Jose Jackson (post season addition). He ended up being 84 OVR with 99 SPD / 92 AGI / 94 ACC / 85 PLR / 88 MCV / 85 ZCV / 82 PRS. He will start at nickleback. BOOM!

    At 4* we signed...
    DT Matt Mills. He ended up being 80 OVR with 82 STR / 84 ACC / 81 TAK / 79 POW / 84 PWM / 78 BSH / 79 PRK. BOOM of a 4*!
    OL Brett Jones. He ended up being 80 OVR with 81 STR / 85 ACC / 77 PBK / 80 RBK. He should develop nicely. BOOM!
    MLB Matthew Williams. He ended up being 83 OVR with 80 SPD / 90 ACC / 90 TAK / 86 FSM / 85 BSH / 73 MCV / 75 ZCV. 4* player with 5* talent!
    MLB Mark Harper. He ended up being 79 OVR with 86 SPD / 84 ACC / 76 TAK / 88 BKS / 75 MCV / 73 ZCV. BOOM of a 4*!
    OL Ben Brooks. He ended up being 75 OVR with 79 STR / 93 ACC / 82 PBK / 83 RBK. He should develop nicely as well. Decent.
    WR John Johnson. He ended up being 71 OVR with 75 SPD / 81 AGI / 85 ACC / 78 CTH. This guy is a BUST!
    P Kenneth Williams. He ended up being 81 OVR with 93 KPW and 69 KAC. His ACC is a bit low for a 4* and hopefully I never punt but if I do he will push the ball back deep.

    At 3* we signed...
    MLB (recruited at OLB) Clay Harris (RS So). He ended up being 77 OVR with 86 SPD / 96 ACC / 76 TAK / 82 POW / 80 PLR / 76 MCV / 84 ZCV. This guy is a BOOM of a 3* and could get moved to SS at a later time.
    OL Earl Brown. He ended up being 70 OVR with 80 STR / 69 ACC / 76 PBK / 73 RBK. He was a bit of a disappointment. Decent for 3*
    OLB Ryan Daniels. He ended up being 73 OVR with 87 SPD / 98 ACC / 75 TAK / 81 POW. Decent if he develops his other skills.
    K Phil Lake. He ended up being 83 OVR with 99 KPW / 69 KAC. He will be sporadic until he develops accuracy but his leg is second to none. BOOM!

    Getting the cut were 3* QB Ryan Anderson (68 OVR), 3* SS Stephen Lundy (66 OVR), and 3* P Jay Campbell (73 KPW / 76 KAC).

    Other then that waste of space 4* WR I signed, the rest of the class is solid.
