imo, that’s because “on paper”, we’re not really signing too many of those 3 star “blue chip” fcs prospects for the most part. i think a lot of credit must go to coach broadway and his staff because it appears to me that coach doesn’t get all “geeked up” about 3 star recruits. instead, it seems to me that he’s primarily looking for “coachable” guys who have great potential with an emphasis on “speed”, academics, and guys who have a great work ethic. he takes these guys and develops them to become great football players who in many ways “outperform” those 3 star “blue chip” athletes. but they’ve got to be “coachable” and they’ve got to have a “great work ethic”.
i mean, just look at guys like tarik cohen and khris gardin. neither of them came out of high school as highly acclaimed d1 recruits, didn’t make the shrine bowl, didn’t make the east/west all star game, and didn’t have any stars by their names according to rivals.com and the rest of those scouting services.
but look at how they both turned out? none of those highly regarded high school accolades were bestowed upon them coming out of high school. yet, they’re both now fcs “all americans”! they’re both breaking records left and right at the fcs level! sure, they both came to a&t with raw talent. but certainly “great coaching” is why they’ve developed into all americans, leaving a lot of those so called 3 star “blue chip” athletes behind...
This needs to be repeated over and over again by every Aggie when asked about our football program. Put it on a flyer. Pass it around. Its the truth!
