I'd respectfully disagree

For one, I'm not sure he's a world beater in recruiting, at least not yet. I think he's much more coach than recruiter right now and he's definitely a solid coach. He secured jobs with Nick Saban, three times. Jim Tressel once. Kirby Smart. He coached in the NFL as a position assistant and DC. Saban said nice things about him and while many will say that is to be expected, I don't think Saban is the personality to compliment people who don't have merit.

Right now, Tucker is far more coach (who coached great talent) than recruiting savant.

Of course, while he was a short-term HC on an interim level in the NFL, he's not been a college HC at a P-5 program. I'm very hopeful and excited. Is he a sure thing? No. I do think however he has the highest ceiling since Gary Barnett (with less talent currently) and could be the best hire since Bill McCartney (the legend).

Hoping he proves himself a brilliant hire by RG.
