It's clear that RU has dropped the level of recruits it makes an offer to. The top talents are not coming, or entertaining, at the moment. We are reading recruiting articles about a 2* California QB, with "interest" (not offers) from schools that RU shouldn't be competing with. I'm not saying this kid isn't potentially amazing, but it's clear that RU is taking a step down in recruiting. And crossing the country to do so. I hope Kill and Ash know what they are doing. Maybe there is no choice at the moment, but I'm hugely skeptical that this level of recruit can compete with the level of recruits the other B1G teams land. Ash better win some games this year because recruiting next year won't get any easier. The RU staff better be amazing at developing talent.
NFL players, even if they are great, train in a manner we, mere mortals, are unfamiliar with. It would demolish us (and some of us are in excellent shape). Carroo's approach is childish at best. At worst, he doesn't care. If he doesn't care, his NFL career might be over. You get what you put into it.
