Apparently they got some 4 star DE last minute. Obviously the ratings don't matter much, but it's ridiculous that Lane Kiffin has this kind of pull/swagger already at SC. Moreover, I think the cream of the crop players for Texas and Florida are more balanced than USC. Ambles, Woods, Prater are all wideouts plus RB Baxter. Texas scored big with Jeffcoat and Hicks. Florida got the best deal with Floyd, Easley, Elam, Powell. I think most people would take blue chip defenders over pure skill positions any day of the week.
USC claims rivals recruiting title
i thought it was funny that yahoo/rivals on their own front page declared florida the recruiting champion but then you go to rivals team rankings and USC is #1
Can't disagree with your sentiments. Defense wins championships. 8 5 star receivers wins a game or two.
