How good is the UMaine recruiting class?

Impossible to say.

We'll find out only when the bell rings. College players are always fantastic on the day they sign with a program. Then reality sets in when the competition begins.

I don't put much stock in who is supposedly recruiting whom. There are myriad reasons why a high D1 might show some interest in a mid-major talent. Let's hope the UMaine recruiting class of 2011-2012 is productive.

If 60 percent of a program's recruits turn out as good as projected, 25 percent turn out better and 15 percent worse ... the talent scouts are hitting for a pretty good average.

What we do know is that the Black Bears need two of these five guys to be better than expected and two of them to be productive right away. That's reality.
