    SDSU had the 14th best defense in the country, and Gonzales has a ton of experience coaching the secondary, which ASU desperately needs. Great hire on paper. Pierce coming in is also a good move.

    Two very solid moves! Gonzales is a proven effective coach & leader. Pierce will bring the cache that comes via his NFL accomplishments, which should only help in recruiting. :rockon:

    So my theory is...with all the negative attention Herm and ASU received for the hire...I can't see any good/great recruits coming in this year. It'll be a "wait and see how this move plays out" scenario. If ASU is improved next year...especially fundamentally...then I think recruits will start paying more attention. Perception is everything to these high school kids, so this year is going to be tough to gain any momentum. Having good coaches, and selling the NFL prep notion, will eventually catch on, and hopefully we can eventually start landing some 4-5 star guys.

    Yep... as I've said all along, 2019 will be the year we can all make proper judgments...

    The Gonzales & Pierce hirings should boost recruiting in CA, hopefully opening the pipeline to Long Beach Poly with the Pierce connection which always churns out talent. Gonzales did a great job last year at SDSU as the Aztec D was the #11 ranked defense in the country. The WR coach is actually the Western Illinois HC, he has over 30 years of coaching experience notably as an assistant to Bill O'Brien at PSU and worked with Likens on the TEM staff a few years ago. Considering all the drama, these aren't bad signings. I read Herm targeted Eric Mangini to be the DC but he turned it down, so he tried to go the NFL route.

    They all seem promising. Hope they can bring in the quality of player needed to perform at a higher level

    I hope the Steelers draft him, so they can have a Jo Jo and a Ju Ju.
