No surprise - Malzahn poised to land Sun Belt's top recruiting class

Recruiting 360: Red Wolves Appear To Be On Verge Of Signing Sun Belt's Top Class

Gus Malzahn will sign his first recruiting class at Arkansas on Wednesday. Below we look at where the class is currently ranked nationally and in the Sun Belt Conference. Malzahn's high profile nationally, his ties to the state of Arkansas and the success of ASU winning 10 games and making the GoDaddy.com Bowl prior to his arrival figure to help boost the class.

As the fellas at IllegalShift.com note, this has the potential to be one of the Red Wolves’ best classes in a decade. Below we take a look at the rankings:

It should come as a surprise to no one that Malzahn is close to putting together a decent class, even for a mid-major program like Arkansas State. Malzahn is a veteran recruiter in the fertile regions of the southeastern United States and should be counted on to routinely pull in decent classes.
