with Wilson, Clark & Bell (you can actually throw Zeke, Trey J & Munger in there although they never technically decommitted) not only did we go 100% in closing on them, but in NONE of the cases did we get the last visit. Think about that. And it's not like these kids visited Bob's College and Car Wash,
Wilson-Texas, Clark-Florida, Bell-Tenn AND Bama, Zeke-Missouri, Trey-Tenn, Munger-FSU.
And they all ended up Buckeyes.
I love Urban and he is getting all the props he deserves, but I know at least in the cases of Bell, Zeke and Trey that Withers, Drayton & Herman, and Fickel & Withers, had the last in-home visits. The whole staff recruited their asses off.
If you told me a month ago (a day ago?) that those 6 kids last visits would be to those schools there is no way I would've thought we would land them all. It's a new day...

Great post, excellent point. We hear all the time what an advantage being last is in recruiting. It just shows how far ahead our coaches were in the recruiting process. Even with the last visit advantage, the others couldn't catch up.
