Post by: Tnphil on November 20, 2022, 05:54:58 EST
Does anyone know how many starters are Pruitts recruits verses Heupels recruits?

No, but it would not be that hard to figure out.  I'll look if I can find some time

The vast majority of the starters are Pruitt's recruits. Hyatt, Tillman, Smart, Hooker, Carvin, Spraggins, etc. on O... Omari Thomas, Baron, Beasley, Page, Flowers, McCullough etc. on D

Im not sure Id even count CJHs first two classes. The first was scrabbled together in a rush, taking as many as they could to fill all the roster holes left by Pruitt. And the second came before we had a decent product (not to mention a metric crap-ton of NIL $$$) to sell. I would start judging him on this upcoming class, which is on another level from the first two. And the 24 class is looking better still.

Not to mention self imposed scholly reductions in both classes

I think his second class was decent.  Not great, but definitely in line with anything Poot did.

Not saying anything about either coach...By my account many starters this season were recruited by Pruitt especially skill players.....But I was told I was wrong. I don't keep up with recruiting a lot so it was hard for me to know who was recruited by who or who transferred in the the grad transfer or portal.

I counted ~32 starters or players with significant PT (see DL) recruited by Pruitt

I believe the overwhelming majority of the people impacting the program were Pruitt's recruits, including Hooker
