Deadspin causes more dinosaur monocles to fall with another huge story!

As this relates to recruiting classes: did Toledo really have the best recruiting class by virtue of them bringing in players with the most stars? Because two-star recruits, as we've witnessed this year, are. Pretty. Damn. Good. Other times, a committed four-star recruit may never play a down for the team.
