Wednesday's signing class will be Vandy's best yet

OK, you've been hearing that this is by far Bobby Johnson's best recruiting class ever, or at least since recruiting became an official sport. Here's how this year's recruiting class, if everybody signs on Wednesday, compares to classes over the past five years. And if you're wondering, Rajaan Bennett will be the most decorated recruit — John Stokes received four stars from Rivals in 2007, but got two stars from ESPN.
