Former USC coach Pete Carroll had the Trojans recruiting better than anyone in the country during his tenure at the school. From 2000-09, Carroll consistently had five-star talent, including players such as Reggie Bush, Matt Leinart, Troy Polamalu, Everson Griffen and Joe McKnight, scattered all over the roster. Some thought Carroll's recruiting success would be hard to top.

Those doubters were wrong.

As the legend of Nick Saban continues to grow with his success on the field, the Alabama coach has become the most dominant recruiter in the modern era of college football.
