There is no way you would call this class a disappointment without Keeley and Bowen. The blue chip ratio is still 88.89% with removing Keeley and Bowen.I've been thinking this for some time. The BK bashing that happens on a daily basis on IB, yet BK has finished as high as 3rd in recruiting and was 6-7 last year. If MF's first class doesn't even beat BK's last class, what does that say? While I certainly think MF had a big impact on last years recruiting, BK hired him. HC's hire good recruiters all the time.
This class essentially hinges (Bowen and Keeley) on the verge of being a step up or a complete disappointment. The two best recruits in the class are veering off course, you miss Dante Moore, Hanafin, Love, J Moore. Highly doubt you get Novosad. No good QB recruit for the cycle. It's very very possible we are just looking at status quo, despite MF's hussle to prove the naysayers wrong.
The only way you call this class a disappointment is because of recency bias with the amount of recruiting success the current coaching staff has yielded.
