It's a little bit of both.

What's bad is that Texas has a tradition of top 5 recruiting classes but has only won 2 conference championships in the past 15 years. One Natty...

This. Why the hell would I care about some sportswriter from ESPN or Rivals opinion of a recruit based off a 10 minutes highlight reel?

Bill Snyder is just an amazing coach. One of those guys that can beat you with his players or beat you with yours too

K-State leads the nation in JUCO transfers the last 5 years.

I don't know how that affects recruiting class rankings but obviously it does. They get damn good players from the JUCO ranks.

Yep

Don't forget that the reason Auburn is so bad this year is because of their top 10 recruiting classes every year

Yeah it just shows how great of a coach Snyder is. King Saban himself couldn't get that team to 11-1.

Why, because some jock sniffing nerd starts a business rating high school players and says so? If recruiting was a a science, EVERY player in the NFL would come from the BCS conference schools only. You would hardly ever see a player from the Sun-belt or an FCS school or a Division II school.

Well Kansas State's best defensive player was a five-star out of HS (#1 player maybe?).

Stars matter in the sense that the true HS standouts that jump out at you immediately are usually five-stars. And these guys are usually the ones that elevate a team from good to great.

With that said, any college coach and his staff worth their paychecks can identify these same players. They don't need Rivals or Scout or 24/7 to tell them that they want to recruit Percy Harvin or Reggie Bush or Vince Young.

no, Bill Snyder is just that good. The dude is one of the greatest coaches ever and Kansas State is lucky as all get out that he was a lifer.

Bingo! Kansas is home to one of the best JUCO conferences in the country and K-State gets a lot of good recruits from the JUCO ranks every year. It's hard to win there but it's not like there isn't any pool of talent to tap into.

K-state just brings them up from the minor leagues every year. Even though the ranking don't show it he gets elite players.
