Not too good so far.
That class from Florida is one of the best recruits in recent years. All have struggled: Kuhlman at times played #5, and now Austin is playing #4. Porter is not even starting.

SC, after the glorious freshman year, Xepoleas struggled then quit, and Westby is in freefall. Only Smith has exceeded expectations, probably the best Trojan right now.

Other players not much different.

Can they turn it around for the remainder of their careers, we'll see.

Magill also isn't on UCLA's roster anymore. Add Fleming to the list as well. She hasn't been great.

Perez and Shaffer not listed there for Georgia but have both had significant impacts.

Fleming is doing quite well this season. Pac 12 Invitational finalist(lost to Xepoleas) in her debut season, now JKC invite finalis(lost to Horvit).

Agree about the Dawgs.
