Best Recruiting Class
I know we still have some time for late signings, but who has the best class so far:
Oklahoma State: Jamal Parks, Luke Ashmore, Luke Silver, Clayton Foster
Minnesota: Zach Sanders, Sonny Yohn, Kaleb Young, Torrey Line, Cody Marcicki
Penn State: Frank Molinaro, Jared Platt, Tim Darling, Cameron Wade, Micah Bollinger, Colby Pisani, Chad Sindoni, Chad Mitchell
Ohio State: Nikko Triggas, Bo Touris, Colt Sponseller, Sean Nemec, John Weakley
Virginia Tech: Cody Gardner, Nick Murray, Matt Cusick, Matt Ryan, Anthony Tragone, Tommy Spellman, DJ Bruce, David Marone
Hofstra: Tyler Mashkow, Justin Accordino, PJ Gillespie, Justin Danz, Lawrence Beckman, Jeff Sicilliano
Missouri: Troy Dolan, KC Pescaglia, Max Shanaman, Brandon Weist, Michael Schmitz, Dorian Henderson, Trevor Collins, Dom Bradley
Virginia: Matt Bonson, Scott O'Donnell, Shawn Harris, Matt/Nick Nelson, Dan Gonsor, Dave Ebbott, Michael Chaires, Chris Henrich
Indiana: Matt Ortega, Chris Diaz, Joe Fagiano, Reece Freeman
Pitt: Tyler Nauman, Thad Frick, Ethan Headlee, AJ Brentzel, David Crowell, Dan Mahoney
Well Rutgers isn't up there with those teams but John Mangini and Tyler Milonas for this year isn't bad after Dobish and Russo.
Out of all of those mentioned by eazee, the Virginia class seems pretty impressive for that school. The Nelsons are high catches for them and Chaires could start for them right away and be a force. Add O'Donnell, Bonson and the Ohio recruits and there's nice quantity/quality. Now its up to the young staff to "coach 'em up'.
Another good class too for Ryan, though I'm wondering where Nemec fits, he may have to bump up.

From what I understand Nemec was a light 160 lber. Apparently he can may 157 next year, maybe RS behind Johnston, I don't know how long he could hold 157 though.
He is. But so is Sponseller, who may be pushing Johnstone next year, and beat Nemec (handily) this year, and Just beat Zeerip at Senior Nationals. Palmer's at 149 for awhile, leaving the relatively open 165 spot

Milonas I'll give you, but Mangini absolutely bombed this year at NJ States, 6th, and Senior Nationals going two and through to non-placers.

Johnstone's a 149 anyway and really needs to bulk up to have a chance to break into next year's lineup. Triggas might challenge immediately vs. Livingston. Touris should redshirt and so should Weakley since Picazzo, Puccilo, and Bergman will man 174 to 197.
