Nobody knows....he hasn't exactly stayed many places long enough to bring his own guys in.

His 2018 and 2019 classes are both top 10 in the country per Perfect Games recruiting rankings.

Zach Zubia - who signed with Tulane to play with Pierce but followed him to Texas - was named 1st team all big 12 this season.

See Allen's comments when he left about how hard it was to recruit here.

comparing recruiting at UT to Tulane is apples and oranges. Texas should be really good at every sport every year. it is THE or should be THE school in a huge state. his recruiting at UT does not really indicate what he would have done here

Yeah, but Zubia was a Tulane recruit … It's not the school - wait for it - it's the Coach.

10 players from Texas were drafted last year...Those were NOT his recruits!!! I blind man could recruit at Texas. He doesn't even have to sell it to anyone.

So you’re saying he lost 10 good players and his team got even better? Damn, that guy can coach. No BS rebuilding excuses. Just wins.

When you replace 10 studs with 10 studs that ain't hard. Now if you don't recruit pitching at allll at your previous job........

Yep, just wins. No agenda here.

Texas went 25-32 the year before, so maybe not as easy as y’all think.

I don’t even see Texas in the top 100 for recruiting classes for 2017 on Perfect Game

Pierce may have been RD's single best coaching hire. Confirming the theory that even a blind squirrel finds an acorn now and again.

In some places, recruiting is not so much in who to offer, but rather in who to turn down.

No question at all. The discussion might be who was his second best hire?

Do we count the Women's golf coaches or do we give that credit to Sue Bower?
