Running off under-performers should be policy, not exception

Let's forget that Dorrell can't recruit for a minute. And let's forget the human aspect of this. And let's assume that we can't predict which 3 star recruit will perform well over the other recruits.
Just spitballing numbers here.

Out of a 32 player class, perhaps 15 become meaningful contributors in their career, from those 7 become starters and 1 becomes all-conference. As HFC, you should have a program to identify potential underperformers in the first 2 years inside the program, and actively transition away from them immediately. If you are allowed to sign 32 players per class, your policy should be to sign 32 players EVERY class. You should run off 17 players within the first two years. Intentionally.

Eliminating underperformers should statisticalyl produce a much better football team. Now given, Dorrell can't recruit, you'd think you'd have to create an intentional system to maximize the performers that you get in order to make up the talent gap.
