Eight days that might define 2014 class

There’s a stretch in every recruiting cycle where the class takes shape. Last year it can be argued a three-week stretch that began in mid-December and stretched to the first week of January was the key time period, as ESPN 150 targets Gareon Conley, Mike Mitchell, Trey Johnson and ESPN 300 lineman Donovan Munger committed.

In the last two months of the third-ranked 2013 recruiting class, he netted ESPN 300 defensive tackle Donovan Munger and ESPN 150 seniors Gareon Conley, Mike Mitchell, Trey Johnson, Vonn Bell and Dontre Wilson along with four-star standouts James Clark and Corey Smith.
