For instance, the 247 sports composite rankings give Kentucky credit for 6 4-star commits and I think that's a fair grading system that generally gives a good summation especially when you look at the lists in this thread where only 6 of the wildcat recruits get a 4star rating from more than one source on the list with really only Barker, Snodgrass, Ware and West getting a consensus nod when surveying the 4 sites chosen.
This isn't to argue that Stoops hasn't stepped it up-I think he has. Im just pointing out how hard of a road he has to hoe from a talent/recruiting standpoint. Right now Auburn and Kentucky have very similar overall points totals in the 247 composite team rankings but Auburn has 12-13 spots remaining (I think they can sign 27 in this class) and already have 1 5-star and 6 4-star commits. Then looking at the players they are currently in on (i.e. guys that will take official visits to Auburn), the potential gap between the wildcats and other SEC schools becomes more apparent.
Sick of hearing about Auburn (sorry), just compare the wildcats to Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Vandy and Tennessee in the current 247sports composite team rankings.
Stoops is going to have to seriously coach up some players along with recruiting @ lexington like it's never been done before.
