I'm not one of those who thinks that star rankings are the bible and I know there are many 4-5 star busts. I agree that Gundy has made OSU into a household name and he has done wonders with the average classes he brings in. I just figured that after years of success, he would be pulling in more top players. If he only signs kids who are "character" players then props to him, but not every Top 100 kid is a bad apple.
Signed Spencer Sanders who nearly everybody wanted-- Gatorade Texas High School player of year. Consensus 4 star. Flanagan was a 4 star safety by some services and 3 by others. Those are all great players and we sign good offensive players and 4 WR's every year. Rudolph was 4 star- so was Sanders 4 star.
It should only be time before we get some 4 stars on D like Flanagan. We certainly are quietly improving quality of depth on our roster and it shows in games against OU and others.
