How good is Arkansas doing in football recruiting in 2013?

It is truly sad that Arkansas is ranked #62 in recruiting in the 2013 football class so far. The thing that troubles me the most is that there are 4 schools in the SEC that have brought in new coaches and Arkansas is one of them. However, what upsets me most is that the other three are ranked higher than the Hogs. Auburn is ranked #20, Tennessee is ranked #29 and Kentucky is #37. I truly do understand that Tennessee is ranked ahead of Arkansas. They have always been ahead of us in recruiting it seems, but I am upset about Auburn being ahead of us for two reasons. First, we could have had Gus Malzahn as our coach. Second, we could have Tim Horton on our staff but we didn’t offer him a job and now he works for Auburn. WHAT REALLY MAKES ME MAD IS THAT KENTUCKY IS AHEAD OF US!!!!! THEY ARE A BASKETBALL SCHOOL!!!! I do think we have a great coach but he should have known that we need some former Hogs on this staff. I think he finally figured that out and hired Barry Lunny yesterday. Here is what Rivals has to say about our class at this point.
