This class would be ranked 31st overall if Tuttle was allowed to be in it. Which I think he should be since he hasn't played a college game yet.. but oh well. Numbers wise it isn't big as of now.. but with him we have 20 commits, one being a long snapper.... so we did get some high quality players.

I want to see if we can grab a JUCO OL or 2

I was curious. Tommy Kennedy just transferred from Butler to Miami for his grad transfer. Because of departures plenty of talk about him being instant impact there. Did we even look at him or why do I not know a thing about him.

Every single one of them could play next year. 

Harris, James, Tuttle could all be starters Day 1.

Here's the thing that struck me as odd. Best recruiting class ever for IU Football is the general consensus. Especially considering the top end talent upside. With that said...I've searching for rankings this morning and the same general consensus has us at 9th or 10th in Big 10 Class rankings after yesterday. 

I know plenty can and will change between now and next signing period but our best ever is 9th in conference?

Think of how Arkansas feels; top 20 class overall,  but last in your own division! Urban kicked B1G recruiting up another level. The SEC will always have a geographic advantage to southern talent and speed, but we have to realize we are in an arms race.

If we take care of non conference every year, we still have to find a way to win 3 conference games to be bowl eligible.  Without conference realignment, there's a good chance we're playing Purdue for our 6th or 7th win regularly. 

Glad coach Allen's Indiana high school relationships seem to be paying off. Along with his Tampa connections, we have a great foundation. Love for us to build even better relationships in Ohio.  Stoops at UK has built quite a base with his connections in the Buckeye state.

Most of the "evers" I've seen have only been since the early 2000s when the ranking service really got going, so it's really only from the last 15 years or so.  We haven't been very good in that stretch lol.

I know there are guys we were on that didn't sign early,  like David Bell, Danielson Ike, and Kristian Williams (even though he verbally committed to Minnesota).

 

Has there been much noise out there on guys available we can fill those las slots with?  I wouldn't be shocked to see a spot or two held open for JUCO or 5yr transfer.

I would love to get Ike and to flip Williams, but I wonder if Williams is waiting for bigger schools to come calling and that's why he isn't signing until February.

Somewhere in that interview Allen talked about how they have their eye on some JUCO and 5th year guys, but wasn't going to take one just to take one.  Wanted the best available players.  Not sure if there's any we're in on, but maybe they'll come out of nowhere like Tuttle did.
