Charley Molnar, Cincinnati: Molnar did an outstanding job in New Jersey for the Bearcats, pulling in five quality prospects. Wide receiver O.J. Woodard could be the prize of the class. Randy Martinez, Craig Parmenter and Tahree McQueen are all good athletes who could fit at different positions.
Greg Nord, Louisville: Nord took running back Victor Anderson from West Virginia following his early commitment. He kept three-star wideout Doug Beaumont in state. Nord also went into New Jersey to sign Greg Tomczyk away from many other programs.
Paul Rhoads, Pitt: The Pitt staff did such a good job across the board that finding standouts beyond Junko is hard. However, Rhoads lured Kyle Hubbard out of Ohio and landed two very important in-state players, Maurice Williams and Dan Matha. Rhodes beat out West Virginia and others for Williams and Matha.
Jim Salgado, Syracuse: Salgado landed in-state standouts Doug Hogue and David Legree. He also went into Virginia to pull out linebacker Chad Battles, and went down to Florida to get tight end Nick Provio and sleeper Kevyn Scott. Salgado was also key in the recruitment of Chaz Cervino and Ryan Gillum.
Bill Stewart, West Virginia: Stewart led the way for what is arguably the most athletic class in the Rich Rodriguez era. Running back Terrance Kerns and quarterback Bradley Starks are both four-star talents. Some feel that athlete Brandon Hogan could be the best kept secret in the country.
