Yes, how dare someone suggest that it's a huge let-down to have one of the worst recruiting classes in the country?
On 247, our class ranks 170th in the country. That's not just worst in the Big Ten, it's 14 spots behind Rutgers. We're tied with James Madison, Robert Morris, Stony Brook, Louisiana-Monroe, and Wagner.
Some schools that rank in the top 100 include Stephen F. Austin, South Alabama, UNC Wilmington, La Salle, Loyola-Chicago, Wyoming, and Lehigh.
Yes, that's embarrassing, made all the more so by the fact that Pat actually has been making in-roads, as proven by Watkins, Carr, and Stevens. He just struck out on every single recruit of consequence, and had to settle for mid-major leftovers this year. And, again, nothing in his 6 years at Penn State suggests that he has any ability to identify the diamond-in-the-rough.
