Since it's been talked about recently how stars don't mean success, I thought I'd go the next step and ask if good recruiting classes translate to wins. Here's some articles I found:

From The Wiz of Odds "Recruiting Rankings Don't Translate Into Wins"
http://www.thewizofodds.com/the_wiz_of_odds/2009/02/ok-heres-the-breakdown-in-rivals-recruiting-rankings-since-2002-i-took-little-old-iowa-and-its-classes-of-slow-white-farm.html

From Mr. SEC: "Recruiting Rankings Are a Compass, Not a GPS"
http://www.mrsec.com/2010/02/recruiting-rankings-are-a-compass-not-a-gps/

From Alabama Live: "Sometimes numbers lie: Recruiting doesn't always pan out as expected"
http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2010/10/sometimes_numbers_lie_recruiti.html

From Dr. Saturday: "Hug your friendly neighborhood recruiting rankings"
http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/football/blog/dr_saturday/post/Hug-your-friendly-neighborhood-recruiting-rankin?urn=ncaaf-137146


The Dr. Saturday one was my personal favorite of the group. Then again, I read the Doctor regularly.

Too lazy to read the links but the headline "recruiting rankings are a compass, not a GPS" seems most appropriate. It's a start in the right direction. Coaching and some luck provide the rest of the story.
