Pruitt should be recruiting better than Mullen right now. He has more early playing time to sell and the be a part of building something special. When your team is losing by 25 pts on average in losses he can tell his recruits...."look, these guys playing for me right now i wouldn't have recruited, but we need YOU to come in here and fix this. Start as a freshman and create your legacy...blah, blah, blah.
The key will be once he starts getting HIS guys, can they win more than two conference games a year? Most likely yes, but i'm not so sure he's the guy that's going to win an SEC title for them any time soon.
