Very true; Here's a look at players that we obtained since 2002:.....

2002 - Adams, Iguodala, Rodgers. Very strong class.
2003 - Ebi, Shakur, Walters. Very disappointing class. Shakur was good but not great.
2004 - McClellan, Dillon, Tangara, Verdejo. This is where recruiting really started to slip. Very unfortunate college career for McClellan; he could have been a very special player. The rest should have never been recruited.
2005 - Onobun, Prince, Williams. Horrible isn't even fair to describe this class especially with Prince transferring because we were supposed to have too much depth for him to play. If only he had stuck it out!
2006 - Budinger, Hill, Wise. Very strong class. Unfortunately, its difficult to build an Elight Eight or Final Four team off just two strong classes in 4 years.
2007 - Bayless, Horne, Jacobsen, Zane Johnson, Lucas-Perry. Bayless was great but only stayed for a year. Horne has been disappointing and the remaining class was clearly not the level of recruiting that we should expect at UofA.
2008 - Fogg, Judkins, Lavender. Not a great class when you consider that Fogg is our only real asset. Even then, Fogg would have no business starting if we obtained UofA quality recruits in previous years.
2009 - Williams, Hill, Jones, Kyryl, Parrom. Could be a strong class; but once again, we haven't had strong classes in back to back years since 2002!
We must put together consecutive recruiting classes that are strong in order to get this team back to UofA quality. This next month might be the biggest month for Miller since he took over a full year ago. If he wants to turn the page by 2011 or 2012, it must happen this month in 2010 with another solid recruiting class. Benjarano, Mayes, and possibly Perry could surprise and be decent but we really need Jack and Lamb or Selby in order to rival our 2009 class.
