It's still a solid class on the offensive side of the ball with Tate, Eletise and the running backs but the majority of the decommits have been on defense. That's not a surprise with the coaching changes, but the recruiting struggles were also the reason for the coaching changes.
It would be great if we could land a couple surprises on signing day but it's not realistic given half the staff just got here (and one guy hasn't even been hired yet). Yates has said he's not going to go after Boise State commits (which is honorable) so we don't even get a bump from the new DC bringing players with him.
It's going to be a thin class and we have to keep that in mind when we have a thin team (again) the next year or two, especially on defense. But I'm on board with the new coaches and the hope is starting with next year's class we'll start to see the cupboard filling with large numbers of quality players.
