A trip down memory lane. Maybe a few we came in 3rd for maybe. Most all of these were 4* or 5* players on multiple sites:
2013 (Dooley/ Jones class- hired in mid Dec)
RB D Green- Mich
RB D Henry- Bama
LB Grace- Miami most think/ Louisville (visited UT and we are probably 3rd at worst)
DT B Bradley- AU- juco
WR J Rumph- UGA (top 2 with Dooleys staff and the same with Bradley...we might have been #1)- juco
DT Toby Johnson- TBD (he got hurt and we lost Dooley/Staley etc etc)- juco
OG R Koehler- Ark (w/ Dooleys staff we land him)
LB D Campbell- K State- juco.....a 3* but IMO he has a ton of athletic ability and a position of need
OT D Skipper- Ark.....I have a feeling he could be very good
*of course with staff changes you will lose recruits...so its not really on CBJs for any of the ones above but just including them for the sake of this exercise
2012 (Dooley had been here 2 full years)
RB M. Pender- Fl St (had him being an EE til just the last few hours when Fl St got him in school)
LB D Santos- TX
LB O Peters- Ark
RB M Davis- USCe (maybe have been 3rd)
OT DJ Humphries- FL
OT A Jelks- Vandy
DE D Autry- Ms St (shocked his parents and Brajp flipping late)- juco
DT K Kirven- Bama (Va Tech prob 2nd)
WR Q Davis- UNC
DT D Jacobs- FL- juco
CB O Jacobs (TAMU)
Not sure on but maybe: DE D Hamilon (Rutgers) and RB M Grice (Ariz St)- juco...maybe 3rd for him after TAMU
2011 (Dooley had been here 1 year)
DT T Jernigan- Fl St (maybe a distant 2nd after we got his last visit)
DT G Wright- AU (I still dont think it was as close as some think bc of he visited AU late on his own dime + the last OV)
LB L Dawson- USCw
TE B Fulse- AU
RB B Bigelow- Cal
DE L Mackey- T Tech (shocker to even Brajp)- juco
Not sure on but maybe: TE E. McClaine (Clemson), TE J Rome (UGA), LB CJ Johnson (OMiss), DE R Drew (UGA) and a few other RBs in that class like RB M Bellamy (Clemson)
2010 (Kiffin/ Dooley's class- had been at UT for 2.5 weeks)
WR M Ambles- USCw (UNC was in there too IIRC)
DE D Jones- OMiss (not sure on this one at all)
DT JC Copeland- LSU (DT we desperately needed that played FB there)
DE B Willis- UNC (he was driving to UT to EE)
CB A Dixon- Baylor (not sure on this one......I just remember a Dixon we missed on late)
LB M Taylor- FL (with Kiffin before he bolted in mid Jan. as with a few others in this class)
DB M Elam- FL
LB J Luc- FSU
LB C Jones- FSU
QB J Scroggins- USCw
QB J Heaps- BYU
RB M Dyer (AU)
2009 (Fulmer/ Kiffin's class)

Elite players we are in the top 2-3 currently for in the 2013 class:
DB V Bell (Bama, UT, OSU)
RB J Ford (Vandy, UT, AU)
DE C Lawson (Clemson, AU, UT)
WR M North (UNC, UT)

Nice work Sam. +1
It will be nice to come back in a year or two and see who all is in the NFL and see who all didn't pan out. I always like looking back to see how they all ended up.
Thanks for the info Sam. It will serve as a great "cheat sheet" heading in to these final days. +1
"Old School"! A strong defense wins championships!
Recruiting is a life line for a program... The near misses we've had would probably put us over the top, even with Dooley.

Nice job Sam. Proves one thing for sure, if you're brave enough to ask the prettiest girl to the dance there is good chance you might end up with a wallflower. Here's to getting the homecoming queens to ride in Butch's Big Orange Convertible in 2013 and beyond!
IT TAKES NO TALENT TO HUSTLE
I believe this to be true. You got to have the players to compete.
Nice work SV. +1
BUTCH IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. GO VOLS!
Nice metaphor. Hope BBOC is a stretch limo. +1
Great work Sam. +1
