Urban Meyer is better than we thought. Oh, we knew he'd be good, but this exceeds even our most fanboyish dreamland expectations. He got depth, speed, size, talent, hype...hold on (rolling on floor with glee...)... sorry about that. Some things you just can't help, especially when your Scout.com page has more gold stars than Martin Prince's Springfield Elementary notebook.
The most important gets were the obvious ones: O-line, DBs, and skill players to twirl this 'chine called the spread option: QB Tebow, all-dimension WR Percy Harvin, and RB Mon Williams, who just LOI'd today and was hovering just off the radar of most Florida recruitniks.
Meyer benefitted from the shakeup at UM and the ongoing decline of Florida State, but he recruited with needs in mind, something Ron Zook never did. It appears Meyer actually thought before recruiting, heeding the dictum "Get what you need," rather than following Zook's rule, which seemed to be "OOH CANDY YUM GIMME GIMME GIMME!!!"
Meyer also got range back into Florida recruiting: Texas, NC, Georgia...he's looking nationwide now and hammering down his corner of the world simultaneously. He's dynamiting bridges and knitting flawless sweaters. He's training donkeys to take dictation and healing the sick. He's picking out an immaculately cut empire-waist dress for your wife and outfitting it with a darling pair of shoes while beating the crap out of Vladimir Klitschko at the same time.
With this class, Meyer has shown that he can evidently kick it in the produce aisle with the best of them. Let's see how he does this fall in the kitchen. -Orson
Hard to fault Orson in his glee. It's a Top 3-5 class by almost anyone's ranking system. It's the type of class with depth and balance (although a bit heavy on WRs) that you need to win in the SEC.
Now, if just had an offensive system that moved the ball on someone other than UK, Vandy and FSU. Rim shot.
