4. Kevin Sumlin, Arizona
The mediocre class of 2018 was understandable considering the coaching change and the lack of time for Kevin Sumlin to operate. But now he has had a year to work.
The Rich Rodriguez classes were never anything amazing, but the 2017 haul was among his stronger ones. Sumlin – considering he was able to make so many big splashes at Texas A&M – didn’t come up with a killer class this season.
It’s not just that Arizona’s class is going to be ranked around the 50s without anything amazing happening on Wednesday, but Herm Edwards and Arizona State were able come up with just enough good talents to be ranked higher.
Jalen Curry is a potentially special No. 1 wide receiver out of Houston, and the hope is for Grant Gunnell to be a solid quarterback in the near future, but so far, what Sumlin has done is good, not amazing.
