I am not celebrating. I know Doeren had a late start, but his class is nothing of which to be proud or celebrate. According to ESPNU, State's class was ranked as 66th best. That was behind 10 other current conference members. Future conference members Pitt and Louisville also did better. How about this BTP fan post?
Here is the breakdown for the conference as it currently stands from ESPNU (only 75 schools are listed):
FSU 9; Clemson 13; VaTech 19; UNC, on probation 20; Miami 21; UVA 34; Md 45; Wake 60; GaTech 64; Duke 65 and finally State 66.
For future conference members: Pitt 41; Louisville 43.
State's class had no ESPN top 300 players, one four star player and 19 three star players. ESPNU.
I note that Doeren is excited by his class. Of course, he has to say that. Further, he has the old TOB spin as pointed out by adwomack (see above).
This is not good, not good at all. But, again, he did have a late start, and he, just like Tom, can turn his three star players into five star players by the time they graduate.
