Anyway you cut it, this is an improvement in recruiting.Hurley is incredible. Going off the 247sports historical rankings, of our top 25 recruits ever, Hurley has landed 4. Ollie in his 6 seasons landed 4 total.
And Hurley doesn't have much under his belt yet. Can't wait to see the results of Hurley x Uptick in program x Big East.
Even Ollie's top ranked recruits though seemed like afterthoughts or people we landed AFTER we missed on early targets. I'm referring to kids like Durham who were highly ranked, but little sought after. That being said, Ollie was recruiting for the AAC.
I'll also say that some of the best recruits from the Calhoun years were afterthoughts or late recruits like Durham, and this goes for Emeka Okafor, Josh Boone and even players like Deandre Daniels.
