If you think Tom Herman's offense at Houston is a great example of post-modern spread football, you should see how he celebrated finishing his first full-year recruiting class.
Thanks to YouTube, you can.
There's no debating the first year in Houston could hardly have gone better for Herman.
Is this a great way to kick off the second or what?
Fax machines are the subject of a lot of jokes every February, but recruits have had the option of filing electronically for a few years now.
Herman's class ranked No. 51 in the nation according to Scout.com, better than 17 Power-5 schools, including six from the ACC and five from the Big Ten.
Five-star defensive tackle Ed Oliver of Houston's Westfield High is the crown jewel of the class.
He is joined by two four-stars in JUCO offensive tackle Na'Ty Rodgers and Bellaire (Texas) High School receiver Courtney Lark.
Houston went 13-1 in Herman's first season, winning the American Athletic Conference and spanking Florida State in the Peach Bowl to close things out.
