Is/was Wynn supposed to visit this weekend?  Is that not happening?

I thought he and the Bama safety were already in town.

It appears he just became academically eligible. Oregon State and Missouri just offered as well. 

 Please god let this one be the exception then. JUCO recruiting under Frost has been a waste of time.

Frankly, most of the recruiting has been non-productive lately.  Lots of hype but mostly duds. Make reported offers in the 400 per year range and struggling to land 20 when the dust settles.  Usually was a late flurry of three or four that seemed to ‘fix’ the class in ‘star ratings’ for the media to suggest ‘we’re back’ but several fail to come, grades ?, homesick after a few months, etc.  

 

After 4 years, it seems to make the shine is gone off Frost and those recruiting visits aren’t coming much.  We are still focused on SE (AB, GA, FL) and have lost out on too many guys from right near Lincoln.  ‘Day by day’ should have been ‘Year by year’ by building the heart and soul (culture) locally in the lines, LBs and TEs, RBs, etc.  Instead, the focus has been the ‘flashy’ WRs and QBs. Those are the least important to building the foundation.  Now, scraping the bottom of the barrel for any kind of DL and very sad. 8 QBs - only one or two will actually play while need at least 6 ready to rotate DL.  Probably have 4, maybe.  Same on O line.  
 

Got to recruit and keep.  All the recruiting ‘over ‘ talk doesn’t encourage duration and development.  Roles and longevity with a plan the players see and understand.  The team motto used to be ‘where the good get better’ and now it’s ‘no fear of failure’.  That kind of sums it all up.

With his strong Louisiana ties, Mickey Joseph can still land his share of Louisiana kids who aren't offered by LSU or who decide to transfer out of LSU. With NIL, we should be able to land higher-quality recruits than what we have been. I'm just sick of us landing primarily 3* guys, and fans saying stars don't matter, and then finishing at the bottom of the barrel and fans acting surprised. Gotta win this year and give potential recruits a reason to want to come here and be a part of something special.

The only people who say stars don’t matter are the fan bases of those schools not winning championships. Iowa & Wisconsin are the exceptions and not the norm.

Let's be honest.  Coaching or lack thereof has played a part also.

Even those two fall into that and have hard ceilings.
