I've played Pollyanna with several of 2011's recruiting classes, searching out the most underrated players, the biggest Cinderella stories, the unsung heroes and fringe top-25ers.
Today, I'd like to look at which 2011 recruiting classes have let me down as a father, or, at least, as a distantly-related nephew.
These classes disappoint for a variety of reasons. Some don't live up to the caliber of play of their team. Others are business as usual for schools where business has been bad.
Each fall short for different reasons. Click through for an airing of grievances.
Note: This is NOT intended to be a slam against the recruits involved. They are innocent bystanders who cannot be held responsible for the shortcomings of the programs they are now tied to.
