How good can they be? They are going to be a talented unit (based on recruiting grades, at least). Were we to run a standard 4-3 with what I imagine we have coming back next year, we'd be looking at 4 starters (Bradham, White, McDaniel, Reid) who were 5 * recruits coming out of high school, 6 who were 4 * recruits (Carr, Williams, Jenkins, McCray, Jenje, Moody) and 1 3 * recruit (Parks). I imagine the numbers would bare out similarly if we were to run some type of 3-4 Hybrid next year. (Yes I know that this lineup still leaves us somewhat small up front, think of me as banking on us adding substantial size in the offseason weightlifting program).
So my question is, with the proper position coaching and an updated scheme, how good can we be? Top Half in the country? Top quarter (I doubt)? I think there's no way we'd be elite so quickly, but how good do you think we can be how soon?
A guy like White has clearly been warped by not having a coach around (and not having Everette Brown here to teach him the position). Could a coach whose background DOESN'T lie on the offensive side of the ball teach him the correct technique for his position to, at the very least, make him serviceable?
