I definitely agree with your sentiment, but at the end of the day recruiting comes down to results. If we get 2 all-conference caliber starters out of this class then it is a great haul. Getting Diamond or Kozan would increase the odds of that happening, but at the end of the day bringing in a ton of guys isn't what will determine the team's fate down the road. If Kalis and Magnuson (or Braden or Bars) end up being really good players, then missing out on other guys won't really matter.
The 2003 class was great because Long and Kraus became good players. The fact that Jeff Zuttah transferred and Pat Sharrow never played didn't matter. If we had signed two more guys and only ended up with Long and Kraus as quality players, it still would have been a job well done.
