I am not sure why this type of thread keeps getting recycled. Your thoughts

seem like the most reasonable take. Hiring Mendenhall, while a surprising move, did not have the same sizzle as other high profile hires. His staff is not stacked with shoe company recruiters and yet they have manged to land very good players in the region and talented players from outside the region.

He took over a program that was in terrible shape. Two winning seasons in the decade before his arrival and had not won a bowl game since the current crop of recruits were still using a stool to get to the cookie jar.

Now, the staff is clearly building momentum with recruits (every class has been rated better than the one before it) and just landed their best class. Back to back bowl games, a winning season, a bowl win over an SEC opponent, and improving resources and facilities all indicate that this is a program on the rise. I expect recruiting within the region will improve with demonstrated performance on the field. Simple
