Recruiting was clise to done by then .IMO,the frosh class a definite step up from soph class overall and certainly not worse on D.
DL,for example, Stubbs has made it. Mitchell has gotten some PT.Smith .the headliner not yet. This year Gille,Johnson and Cavenas much larger and with more upside.
Jones already on 2 deep.
Whether new D assts are capable coaches of not,I belive the central problem is poor tecnique and failing assigned roles. Fix those and D may be addquate enuf. Do think once the schollie players are upperclassmen the D could ne very good with proper coaching.
Whatever the future brings,lets beat Cornell first.
