With the coaching changes, some losses were expected. This is as close to a ‘good loss’ as possible. S Kerry Swarn reportedly de-committed because he ‘did not see where he would fit in among the depth that the Wildcats have.’ Yeah, that sounds suspiciously like he’s scared that he’s not good enough to start, so he won’t even try.
When you hire a coach like Duane Akina, one of the best recruiters and DB coaches in the nation, and the depth you possess before he even sets foot on campus is scaring off some players, it’s a good thing. It would have been nice to have Swarn join the Wildcats, but if you’re too frightened to even try to earn a starting job, we’re better off without you.
