Richard, holdenhogfield

Made a good point (imo) that is buried in another thread on the football board.

He mentioned that we are still playing with lots of Chad’s recruits.

Are you surprised that more of Pittman’s players from his first two classes haven’t stepped up?

I’m not RIchard…but it is my impression that Sam wants to build for the long haul. He doesn’t want a player playing a handful of plays in 2022 vs. redshirting, and then playing a major role on down the road.

It is the formula of Mark Stoops at KY, Mike Gundy at OSU, and Matt Campbell at Iowa State (to name three). You turn 3-stars into something bigger and better and smarter and more mature. Still need some of those uber-elite recruits but we are getting those. Need a deeper, and older, supporting cast.

Seems the Redshirt process that was a major benefit to taking a flyer on some recruits, which has been a cornerstone of those of us who don’t routinely get a boatload of 4/5 star recruits can have its risks in this new portal world.

Sounds good to me.
