Another school putting together a remarkable class is TCU.

The secret of his success should come as no surprise – a little Rose Bowl and a lot of moving to a Big Six conference.
“The Rose Bowl probably did as much as anything, really helped us finish up with a couple of recruits who changed their minds and came to us,” coach Gary Patterson says. “Maybe the Big East helped solidify that, but … I think it’ll be a bigger deal in this next recruiting class.
“It’s a lot of things … how (much) we’ll be seen on TV, a prospective student-athlete knowing we’re going to a conference where they can say they’re an automatic qualifier.”
Boise State looks on in envy.
