Your last part is exactly what I’m talking about. Both WDE and E have both basically said that TWill and Porter are doing the most leg work on the recruiting trail. I was referencing your post earlier to loof. I have never seen you make a reference like that about Kodi or Hand/Grimes. That was the point of my post, but you suddenly want to downplay our Ace?
“Since Grimes allegedly is a loser at recruiting, I, too, am puzzled. Driscoll even spent time talking with Grimes and is still thinking of coming to Auburn. Imagine that!”
“Don't bother. Their minds are made up. Some here have crystal balls through which they can see the future and thus, they know that Kodi will not be a good or even adequate recruiter 10 years from now.“
We signed one very good WR. Anybody that watched Iggy in the AL/MS game knows that. The '15 class had five LB's so we only took one in '16. The practice of following a big group with a very small one is not unprecedented.
“Then there's the fact that we've used 24 of our 25 slots and are on the verge of giving slot #25 to a transfer lineman, OL or DL to be determined. So, it's like fishing with a bag limit of 25. Which signee should we have thrown back in order to get another WR? Which two should have been thrown back in order to sign two more WR?
It looks to me like Kodi is doing just fine recruiting.“
but then you say this about twill
“Williams has been handed the richest recruiting area in the Southeast. (Possibly in a tie with the Miami area) Williams's assigned area is in close proximity to Auburn. UGA is the only other school as close as AU and they can only take 25 a year. If Williams did anything other than lead the pack he'd be a complete failure.”
“Now, I think he's a very good recruiter who is doing a great job but there are others on staff that are working just as hard. Williams is not the end-all be-all of recruiting. He is excelling and he should be excellingwhen considering what he's got to work with.”
Seems to me that you give others passes but arguably our best recruiter on staff you seem to have no problem criticizing for small things. I’m not saying that others aren’t doing a solid job of building relationships, etc, they obviously are. Twill and Porter are helping tremendously.
