Featured Fanpost: Comparing First Recruiting Classes - Paint Dry Ty, Sark, and Coach Pete (Updated 2/4)

In this fanpost hawksfordays did an excellent job looking at the recruits that Sark brought in after his first year as the head football coach at the UW. With so much being said about Coach Petersen's ability, or lack thereof, to recruit top recruits into his first class, I though that I would run a quick and dirty comparison between the class he has apparently put together and the first classes put together by the two previous head coaches - Tyrone Willingham and Steve Sarkisian.

I don't want this to be a comparison between rating services, so I've used data only from Scout/Dawgman. I'll try to update this as PSAs announce their commitments, and then do a final update on NLI day.
