If we can put together a couple of good seasons, we'll get better in the recruiting game again. As for the 4* vs 5* argument, I tend to think statistically the numbers matter across the entire class, but individuals and the situation they're put into can affect their performance dramatically (John Brantley comes to mind). Great player, wrong system...
It'll all become clear in the second week of the season, Florida at Texas A&M. It ought to be a good game, and a telling one at that. Damn, I miss college football!
