Klemm named Pac-12 Recruiter of the Year

Not tremendously surprising, but UCLA offensive line coach was named FoxSports/Scout.com’s Pac-12 Recruiter of the Year today. His efforts in reeling in seven offensive linemen — all of whom — laid the foundation for what the site ranks as the nation’s No. 5 class.

From Scout.com:

Klemm signed the top-ranked offensive tackle in California, Arizona and Tennessee and also landed a four-star lineman from Texas, and put together the second-ranked offensive line class in the country while also being one of the point men on four-star receiver Eldridge Massington from Texas.

UCLA signed eight offensive linemen in 2004, but this year’s haul knocks that one out of the water. The Bruins also had that many in 2004, but only one received four-star ranking from Scout.com. All but two members of Klemm’s group have four stars.

Lane Kiffin’s brother, Chris, received national Recruiter of the Year honors for his work at Ole Miss — reeling in defensive end Robert Nkemdiche, the overall No. 1 prospect, and the nation’s No. 10 class despite the program being just two years removed from a 2-10 season. This is mildly amusing considering the recent attrition of USC’s class.

    You are brutal. Failed to mention some of the other rating services too that ucla rated lower. And speaking of Rivals, they had their top 10 recruits and 9 were Trojans. And why don’t you show some guts and list your email address, like many of the ESPN guys do? I think you’re a coward.

    Be fair and comprehensive next time, and not a bruin toady.

    Peace.

    That’s the PAC 12 top 10 recruits. And USC averaged 4.4 per man on the rivals rankings and ucla 3.7. To compare a 23 person class to a 13 man class is absurd. And failed to mention that SC has to deal with sanctions and hence, has to “swing for the fences” with recruits. Below average year for west coast linemen too. Per usual, the bruins got the pick of a runt litter. Remember, SC has won 24 Rose Bowls. UW has won 7, Stanford 6 and ucla 5.

    Hilarious.

      Ryan, you’re on a rampage right now. Calling all writers brutal and making USC look bad. Some years other schools will improve so much that might take away from USC’s standard of recruiting. Be honest, bro.. USC had an off year compared to it’s standard. And Lane Kiffin’s play calling is terrible right now to the point he made Matt Barkley look average. UCLA is on a roll right now from their own standard of achievement compared to recent years. I don’t think any of the writers are saying anything else.
