I'll put an amendment to my previous statement. It does say something about the talent. I just think Nashville developed a bad opinion from that something.

So let me get this straight... We are NOT a recruiting powerhouse? This explains so much!

Yeah, I don't see how this really reflects on PJ's recruiting. He barely had a few months to string together this class when he got hired.

He had a junior declare early and almost go in the first round which only helps his case. The rest are mostly Gailey leftovers.

I think you will see next year that your whining about this will be replaced with screaming and kicking when Attaochou, Young and possibly Sims opt to leave early for the draft.

Go Jackets!

That may be true and I hope it's true but that's speculation for now. My post is based on real events. I waited until after the draft was over to post anything and noticed that the AJC had already posted an article that covered the draft numbers.

The people before the 08 class had nothing to do with PJ from a recruiting standpoint, none whatsoever. The 2008 class was mostly recruited by Gailey, but a handful were recruited by Johnson.

So then the ones we're really talking about here are the few in the 2008 class, that PJ had a couple months at most to round up, and the 2009 class. So what was the word on Georgia Tech for most of that period of recruitment? The word was that we were going to be a flaming pile of cow dung, we were gonna win 3 games in 2008, two over FCS. That leaves the five months of the football season and after til signing day of publicity that wasn't entirely negative, and even then it didn't go from mild surprise (outside of actual GT fans) to respect til we beat Georgia. So that gave us two months of people outside of the circle of Georgia Tech fans who thought Paul Johnson was worth a ----.

Also, 14 of that 2009 class (would be 15 with Burnett) are going to see a lot of playing time this year and only 3 of them will be graduating. But yeah, no way 11 players could get into the NFL draft 2 years away.

What this draft really means is that the last remainder of the 2007 class either weren't that good or weren't NFL type (Roddy) and the 2008 class (made up of the Gailey's that didn't jump ship and the handful PJ could get amidst a crapton of negative recruiting) weren't NFL material (Uzzi is a maybe).
I never mentioned a specific coaching staff, blamed anyone, or made excuses. I only said the recruiting at TECH must improve. Obviously, the recruiting duty is presently CPJs.

That kind of surprised me too, but they did have a lot of prospects. I wonder how many signed as free agents.
