Auburn has accepted Kris Frost's commitment according to Rivals, via twitter.

RT @auburnrivals: Auburn has accepted a commitment from Kris Frost.

Well this sucks. So much for that slim piece of hope.

I always assumed Auburn would find a spot for him in their class, its just going to come down what he wants, a school that went through a coaching change, or a school that he almost wasn't good enough for. I believe he will be at Michigan next year.

Reality. The hot girl we liked asked some other guy to go to the prom.  He said yes. Presumably she liked him better because he is more attractive, looks like a better long-term bet, and has more coaching staff stability (okay, so the metaphor breaks down here).

Sure, he had to check and make sure he was still free that night... but I'm not exactly renting a tux if you know what I mean.

Wasn't Frost one of those who wanted to go to a quality school?  If that matters to him, I just don't see how you pick Auburn over Michigan.  I understand the effect of all the coaching turmoil, but if Hoke reassures him, why would someone who cares about the school (and not just football) want to go to Auburn over UM?  So I hold out Hoke until I hear that it's over with Frost.

has more to do with the horrible timing of the Hire/Fire process than the new coaching staff. Let's face it, DB sacrificed our incoming recruiting class to interview a bunch of guys who led him to the coach that would have come here months ago. Hoke said himself he would have gladly walked from San Diego if he had to. This is the Dong Punch that doesn't quit...

OK - (almost) everyone on this board is seriously freaking out.  I like to follow recruiting as much as the next guy, but seriously - chill the fuck out. 

One recruiting class does not a great team make.  And one bad recruiting class won't break us.  All the guys who were going to be contributors for the next year or two are on campus already and have bought in to coach Hoke.  If he wins games for us, the recruits will come in.  If he doesn't, it really won't matter whether or not we got another 4 star or two in this class. 

It seemed like people were pretty excited about Hoke a week ago, and then we lost a few recruits that weren't even his fault.  Seriously, let's settle down.  I'm not saying to not follow the recruiting, but don't get all bent out of shape when a guy you wanted doesn't go our way.  Or - rip on the coach of the team you love and get yourseld all angry and pissed.  Whichever you like better.

Wow. You're like, the anti-Dudeness. I have to say, though, "WolvinLA2 abides" doesn't quite sound right.

I agree with what you're saying though - while it looks kinda bad, we're dealing with yet another transition. Things will catch up. I think we have to go into this thinking there's something the coaches know that we don't. We have to let them do their jobs. If we don't, it'll be another RichRod situation. Then - in a few years, we won't have anyone who wants to coach for us, because we've scared off all the "outsiders" and pissed off all the "Michigan Men."

Then again, that might not be too bad - Hello: Coach Mike Hart?

I know what you're saying, but a weak 2011 class translates to a weak RS junior/senior class in 2014, when those guys would be traditionally expected to be the biggest contributors on the team.  I know that's not always the case (see: 2010, Michigan), but it is enough for it to be a decent rule of thumb.
