We're now up to #16 on Scout and 247 (Rivals hasn't updated yet).  If our closing push includes Griffin and Copeland (and it's looking good for both right now), we might crack the top 10.

Saw where we are around 4th or 5th in the SEC?....Fully expect to see us hoover around the top 10.

Yes.  In a virtual tie with USC junior and trailing LSU, Auburn, bammer and uga, in that order. 

I do think we have a chance at just barely cracking the top 10 

If so, we would be about the same as Auburn and LSU...bammer too, but they typically surge late so I'm not reading too much into it just yet

Top 10 or even top 15 would be phenomenal.  Even before all the decommits happened, and we were sitting in the top 5, we were always going to drop anyway because we had more commits than anyone else and virtually no more schollys to give.  Odds are we would've ended up in the 10-15 range anyway, even if everything had gone to plan.

So to lose a top a 100 QB, top 100 OL, top 100 WR (who we got back, but still), top 100 RB, two top 100 DBs, and several other lower-rated guys, and STILL end up about where we would've finished in the first place...fantastic.  Not to mention that we were getting absolutely destroyed in the national media for the past two months- so that didn't help, either, and yet this staff was able to overcome. 

And this class has basically been thrown together on the fly.  I can't wait to see what happens in the 2019 class, with a full year to plan and build relationships, and fewer obstacles to our success.

Agree with all.  Like what I see from CJP so far.
