The two position groups which had the most dire need - LB and DB - actually got filled out pretty well. After missing Stokes, holding on to Bowie was huge. White and Harris are both nice gets as well. And after signing only one true LB last year, they take five this year, including a 4 star, two high 3 stars, and a promising JUCO.
The other position groups are more of a mixed bag, but since the immediate needs are less pressing at those positions it should give guys the time to mature and coaches the time to evaluate. Need a couple of hits at those spots but more misses than usual won't kill you.
Chester Graves looks like another sign-and-place, and Cordarrian Richardson is just as likely to end up at EMCC as he is at Maryland next year. So there may be a few more big time players from this year's class once the NCAA cloud clears (assuming they can get their grades right eventually).
Finally, if you look at the 247 rankings for instance, OM slots in with teams like TCU, Louisville, Pitt, Michigan State, and Colorado. That's not terrible company.
This is not to pump sunshine - I'd love to have Cam Akers, Walker Litle, Trey Smith, and Jacob Phillips. Some of the signees didn't appear to have any other Power 5 offers. Another class like this next year and OM is likely back to being a permanent fixture of the bottom half of the SECw - as a certain other program has shown, grinders can't compete with teams packed with 4 and 5 stars. But I'm hopeful that won't be the case in 2018 - finally get the NCAA monkey off your back, and you now have a coaching staff full of excellent recruiters in place ready to hit the road.
