- Prince, Carufel and Jones transferred, and I don't think any of them became more than periodic contributors after that
- Gaines disappeared from the face of the Earth (I remember him not enrolling for his junior year, then never hearing from him again)
- Schmidt and Gallup never did anything that I can remember, beyond special teams, though I'm not sure that was a surprise
- Richardson became a marginal contributor
- Young and Olsen became solid members of the O-line, but unfortunately not much more
Beyond those Gatorade state POYs, Yeatman, Reuland, Richard Jackson and Zach Frazer all transferred, Webb had health issues, and George West, Kallen Wade, Toryan Smith, Paddy Mullen, Leonard Gordon and Ryan Burkhart all rode the pine. Only Aldridge, Sergio Brown, Robby Parris, Dan Wenger (who transferred for his 5th year), McNeil, Walls, John Ryan and Chris Stewart were contributors. And among those, only McNeil, Walls and Stewart were consistent starters. Which makes a total of 5 starter-caliber players in a class of 28, one of whom (Walls) spent a season elsewhere because of rumored academic problems.
Such a low hit rate speaks to how overrated that class was (no. 2 in the country, I believe), and how poor Charlie and his staff were at evaluating and developing talent.
