IMO, our ranking at the end of the season is less important to how we finish the season.
Recruits are smart. They read results. They study programs. They listen to recruiting hype.
They'll know that the UTSA was cancelled. They'll know about Harvey. They'll know about D'Eriq King and the impact he's had one the offense and season.
They already know about Oliver. Every week Oliver is a one man marketing program for UH.
King and Oliver makes for a 2018 recruiting advantage for UH.
