    And Adoree Jackson is a perfect example. A outstanding athlete and a game changer. I have not seen anyone even close to him on the Offensive side of the ball since he left and it shows in the offensive production. Then there's Sam Darnold, though he was underrated by recruiting services due to injuries in HS. If not for his play, Helton probably would have fired let go by now. Darnold alone made a mediocre Offense better. Both are game changers by virtue of their athletic ability, not by the coaching they received in college.

    I am willing to place a bet on this year's class not being "like those previous high ranked classes" (paraphrasing the OP)

    That is THE biggest difference. And in-game coaching/adjustments

    Not really. They were coming off a PAC12 championship and 11-3 season. I don't think that equates to the following season being "make or break."

    Paragraph of the year so far. This is so true and it is what the "blueblood" programs struggle with. The blue blood programs that can get the 3* work ethic out of a 5* will succeed and will be in the running for the national championship every year, the ones that don't, won't. We have the recruits, we just need someone to instill the work ethic and accountability while getting rid of the entitlement. When we get that back, we will be on top again.

    suffice it to say, more 5* recruits will succeed than not. however, if you get a dedicated 3* that's willing to bust his tail off, he can be just as good in the long run
