MSU recruiting and the new coach

A couple of weeks ago I looked at our recruiting class HERE, and today even after the firing of Sly Croom (who was reportedly a master recruiter and someone everyone wanted their kid to play for) only 1 person has defected: Montez Phillips and 2 others have become "soft verbal" recruits: Skinner and McPhee. Now I know this hire doesn't mean everyone will stay but I think it is a good sign for the recruiting class that only one de-committed despite the loss of the HC and both coordinators.

In other positive news Tyler Russell was bumped up to a 4 star player by making the class look even better. Maybe, just maybe a coach like Mullen can get Pat Patterson back in the fold, a big WR recruit, or snag Chad Bumphis a WR from Tupelo who is widely sought after.
