University of Georgia's 2013 Recruiting - Hit Ratio

I'm not completely happy either. - Kevin C. Cox

National Signing Day has come and gone. Leaving college football fans everywhere analyzing their haul. Below I break down this year's recruiting class by hit ratio into categories: Position, Unit, Stars, and States. Afterwards I name the universities who took what UGA wanted. Enjoy.

Position:

Double digit offers to RB, WR, DT, and S standout - not a good hit ratio of all but S. RB and WR do not need immediate help to succeed in 2013 with the returning talent so I chalk low hit ratio up to depth. Gurshall is going to be around for at least 2 more years. S and DT needed numbers to field a two deep for 2013. 3 and 5 commitments respectively would fill the need but a closer look from boxertech's response to chuckdawg's post sheds light on the low hit ratio for DT.

Unit:

A look at the two deep will show the 2013 team is loaded on offense returning 9 starters, so the lower hit ratio is understandable. The Defense needed a high hit ratio and overall the coaches were successful in doing so. Dawg Haus does a great job of breaking down the BoykinTMposition - showing the versatility in the 2013 Recruiting Class.

Stars:

For those who only care about stars here is the breakdown. Why are majority of Dawg fans wanting more? The 0 for 11 on the 5 stars really hurts the batting average. To further borrow from baseball - base hits were HOF like (.362), extra bases were good (.217), but the home runs (.000) were a disappointment.

States:

Here I wanted to show the top 7 states UGA went after. Surprising to me was the high number from CA. MS and VA were products of JUCO but the CA doesn't make sense. Hopefully one of you can enlighten me. 0 for 8 seems like a waste of time when you factor in the distance from the Classic City. There is so much talent in GA, FL, SC, NC, and AL that I would prefer the coaches put more focus on those states. After all, I doubt kids growing up in CA enjoy listening to REM or crave Five Star Day.

Universities who took what UGA wanted:

CMR and co handed out 129 offers. We cannot take all 129 into the Classic City but 5 of the 8 "bank robbers" are teams, the Dawgs have on the 2013 schedule and beyond.
