Just a little trip down memory lane.
Here's Dave Campbell's Super Team from 2002.
I marked the players i think were a hit with an asterisk.
* QB Drew Tate - Baytown Lee
RB Derrick Brown - KLein Oak
RB Erik Hardeman - Pflugerville
WR Earvin Taylor - Mission
* WR Limas Sweed - Brenham
* TE Tony Hills - Alief Elsik
OL Ofa Mohetau - Euless Trinity
OL Jorrie Adams - Jasper
* OL Cody Wallace - Cuero
OL Ian Cunningham - Lewisville Hebron
OL Corey Clark - Smithson Valley
* UTIL Tarrell Brown - North Mesquite
DE Tim Washington - Sugar Land Dulles
DT Thomas Marshall - Dallas Bishop Dunne
DT Xavier Lawson-Kennedy - Duncanville
DE Justin Warren - Tyler Lee

LB Demario Pleasant - Lewisville
LB Robert Killebrew - Klein
DB Tony Cade - Lewisville
DB Ernest Mason - Fort Worth Dunbar
DB Dominique Brooks - North Mesquite
DB Corey Campbell - Spring Westfield
UTIL Steve Richardson - Garland
Not a single one on defense which is interesting, although you could argue that Killebrew and Warren both played a lot for their respective teams.
Future NFL players in the same class.
DE Jarvis Moss - Denton Ryan (2nd team)
DE Tim Crowder - Tyler John Tyler (3rd team)
DB Ashton Youboty - Klein (2nd team)
DB Michael Griffin - Austin Bowie (3rd team)
QB Matt Flynn - Tyler Lee
QB Kevin Kolb - Stephenville
RB/DB Johnny White - Pearland
DL Joseph Bryant - Jasper
DL Ryan McBean - Euless Trinity
DB Chris Houston - Austin LBJ
K Mason Crosby - Georgetown

Remember the angst about not getting XLK. Good times.
Ryan McBean is a big-time player that had to go Juco.
I love these kind of look-back reviews.
It puts in perspective what a crap shoot recruiting is and what BS the Star system is.
I think the most I heard about him at Oklahoma State was when he dropped 30 pounds in one offseason by drinking a gallon of water every day. Something like that, anyway.
The hit rate is shockingly low. Would be interesting to see how other years fared.
Didn't Ta Ta end up dropping football to become a poet or something like that?

"I've heard some of our fans say, 'We were always an SEC school. We just didn't know it," athletic director Bill Byrne said.
I believe you are correct.
Wow I played against Pleasent and Cade. Cant beilve that was 10 years ago.

You dare to dis Robert Killebrew...
I met Jorrie Adams at some all star game. At that time, he was the most physically imposing human being I'd ever seen in person. I also remember XLK. I would never say this to his face, but he talked and walked like a fat lady with curlers.
Disciplina praesidium civitatis
Jorrie Adams was the biggest wuss, I remember laughing at him being a five star. Easy to see Bryant was the player
Wow I had forgotten how good Earvin Taylor was in HS. I coached his pee wee basketball team and summer camp circa 1995 I believe and he was a good kid. His brother was the opposite, but Earvin was good. Even though he went aggy I wish he would have made the NFL
Downvote for reminding me that was ten years ago.
Ofa, we hardly knew ye.
I think this was Fran's first recruiting class & the Aggs were all geeked out over Adams & some oversized wr that Rivals had ranked to highly. The Aggs class that year looked great on paper based on Rivals star rankings but was a total flame out. I don't think Jorrie Adams ever played a down for them.
Let me guess. He specialized in poetry about breasts.
He did. They moved a "five star OT" to defense within about a week.
Fran's classes didn't get a whole lot better after that, save for his last one that produced two top ten picks (Von Miller and Ryan Tannehill).
Everyone in P-ville knew Erik Hardeman was knee deep in some bad stuff even before he came to Texas.
It's amazing that the staff didn't do more homework on him.
Chris not sure if you were there at the time, but what ever became of Reggie Madu? I heard almost nothing after the track incident.
Jeff....that name doesn't ring a bell. I only coached in the Pville district 4 years at one of the middle schools. Hardeman went thru the middle school where I worked at and a lot of people knew the shenanigans that he was into.
and his lack of parental guidance......
