You hear it every time a new coach takes over after the season ends.
They are either trying to save a recruiting class or they have a tough job of trying to pull in some good players with about a month to do it.
A coach like UCLA's Jim Mora might have been at the biggest disadvantage because it has been so long since he was on the recruiting trail.
While a coach like Toledo's Matt Campbell just took over where he left off since he was promoted to the top job.
Every one of the 26 new head coaches faced his own ups and downs during his first recruiting season with his new program.
Here is a look at their class and the grade they earned.
