For Matt Luke and Ole Miss, the goal of the 2019 class seemed to shift at times throughout the cycle. From A top 15 class, to the #MississippiMade campaign, to holding the nation's No. 1 class over the summer, it has been a whirlwind time for fans of the program.

After being unable to finish strongly on the field, recruits knew change was coming. So did the fans.

In all, both coordinators have been replaced, Maurice Harris has moved on, and there is still buzz about some other moves before spring ball gets underway.

Amidst all of the turnover, and questions about whether or not Luke has what it takes to be an SEC head coach, and the negative recruiting about Rich Rod's offense, Ole Miss closed strongly this past Wednesday.

They finished with the nation's No. 22 class, just a handful of points behind Ohio State.

Being able to keep Jonathan Mingo, get Jerrion Ealy back in the class, and pull Lakia Henry from the JUCO ranks was as impressive of a close as one could have hoped for.

Still, though, signing just two of the top 10 in-state can't be repeated. Neither can striking out in the state of Tennessee.

The state of Mississippi is significantly weaker in 2020 than in 2019. The city of Memphis is as strong as it has ever been in the class of 2020.
