Correct me if I'm wrong but....


When DeSorbo was with the wolfies and they started their rise they did not land top 25 recruits. It was more of the #75-300 ranked guys that came in and then dropped boatloads of time in their first year or two in the program. Held was their first big recruiting "get" and I remember he had some pretty big drops his sr year in high school at the Y-Nats meet in April of his sr year.

If anything you can look at it as we are ahead of where they were at this point. I would also expect 1 or 2 from overseas to sign this spring with the coaches having a chance to recruit with their feet under them now. What we have signed in the fall is purely based on reputation at this point, both of the school and DeSorbo, so that definitely shows that our reputation is still up there with DeSorbo now included when I say "our".

It's also kind of expected that the women would have a bit of a lull in their recruiting with how great they were recently, and maybe Leah Smith leaving to train elsewhere hurt a bit (but I dont blame her one bit as I would probably do the same)
