Recruiting On The High Seas: Progress

New, 4 comments

Last week, I took a look at both the offense and defense and the recruits' average star rating, while ayleein greatly expanded on my thoughts (internet chest-bump). Having not wasted enough time, I thought I'd go ahead and give everyone a complete picture of the job that I think Captain Mike Leach has done recruiting at Texas Tech. Again, recruiting rankings are not the final say in team success, but I do think they are somewhat accurate and I thought it was a little tough to gauge how Texas Tech's program has progressed without taking a look since the recruiting rankings first began, at least for the Rivals.com network.

Some explanation is in order as well, the delta is the difference between 2003 and 2002, 2004 and 2003, etc.  This is just to have somewhat of an idea if there's any sort of improvement.

With that being said, I'll let the numbers speak for themselves and would love any additional comments, questions or observations.
