Discussion: LOOKING BACK: Hits and Misses in USC Recruiting
 
Pretty good read. Really liked looking at the "two star" part of the article.

Man that 2009 class was special and had a chance to be really special. 2010 was good too.

What year was geathers? That was maybe my favorite class where we stole geathers and another DL (was it travian robertson?) out of nowhere at the end of the recruiting period.

I know grades were an issue along with a huge class that year but one miss I would've mentioned would be Lorenzo Mauldin. He'd probably be pushing to start this spring.

Kinda early to say anyone in the 13 class is a miss.

I agree. And I think Qua Gilchrist contributed to the team, just not at LB.

Yeah saying someone still on the team (Martin) is a miss is pretty messed up IMO.

How can Tanner McEvoy be listed as a miss?

We just didn't know he was a safety.

Seems like few players we land are misses to me. You just can't get everyone on the field. Some have to be better than others, doesn't make them misses.

But Mauldin wouldn't be considered a miss in the scope of the article. These are all players who have been on the team at some point. Unless I've blocked something out of my mind, I don't think Mauldin was ever part of the USC program.

Yeah he never made it in but neither did Clarence Bailey (if I remember correctly) and he made the list.

Culliver a miss at WR yes, but how can you say an NFL corner is a miss?

From what I've read, I would be surprised if Martin is on the team after the spring semester.

He played there this year just to get on the field. Next year he will clearly be in the mix to compete for a starting spot at QB.

Sheldon Royster is by far the biggest disappointment to me out of all the "misses" on that list.

I've Ben Axon myself how he can be a miss. He never made it to campus.
