I don't know if I'd go this far. As I've said earlier in this thread, it's all relative. Bad compared to whom? Calipari or Brady? Brady's last few years have declined in terms of recruiting, but for kids like Randolph, and Tommy Mason Griffin (who of course either were one and dones or didn't end up coming here), and what I did not like about Brady is that his classes were very inconsistent (one or two one and done players, and then a bunch of more questionable players). Trent did get White to transfer, got Courtney and John Isaac to commit early, at least you feel like he's going after an overall solid prospect across the board. He's missed out on a several very high profile players--no telling how seriously they were considering LSU or if they would have considered LSU if Brady was still here. I'm going to suspend a grade on Trent until I see the 2010 class, but so far, I'd say Trent has done an average to slightly above average job in recruiting given the circumstances.
