We also seem to get more players that have non-football

Aspirations. Sans elite coaches pushing them we possibly have players that aren’t as motivated football wise. Tillery reportedly was an example of that for his early years. They get to ND and see possibilities beyond just the NFL.

IMO this affects a few of our star players each class. I had a roommate on the 1985-1986 teams that experienced that. 6’6” DE with elite speed. First team parade AA. Quit after two seasons because football wasn’t his top priority. In modern day ranking systems he would have been a high 4 star and possibly even a 5 star given his metrics - 40 time in particular.
