While Turner Gill considers his 2009 recruiting class his best in four years, Rivals.com once again ranks the Bulls class near the bottom of the MAC. The Bulls are tied for 11th in the conference with Bowling Green and 109th overall, also with Bowling Green. UB ranked last in the conference by Scout.com and 120th overall.
Over at Syracuse first-year coach Doug Marrone is satisfied with his first class with the Orange, but like UB Rivals isn't overly impressed with Syracuse's class. The Orange rank last in the Big East and 116th overall, the lowest among the BCS schools. The only Football Bowl Subdivision programs ranked lower than the Orange are Louisiana-Lafayette, Air Force, Navy and Idaho. The Orange was also last in the Big East by Scout.com, and 95th overall.
