PAT RUEL – USC
BUZZ: Ruel was a serious candidate for national recruiter of the year with an average star ranking for his six signees of 4.17.
He helped recruit five-star offensive linemen Matt Kalil and Tyron Smith, but he helped pull in one of the biggest Signing Day surprises when he able to get Rivals100 cornerback T.J. Bryant away from the grips of Miami and Florida State.
Coach Ruel was also named one of the top 25 recruiters nationally. Also have to give credit to Coach Seto for helping with T.J. Bryant. Excellent job by both coaches.
