My statement is very true in basketball, but may arguably be dated in football. I looked back at the last 7 recruiting cycles and looked up how many kids went to a P5 school, now many kids went to a P5 school that is roughly the same caliber as MU or higher, and how many kids went to the SEC besides Mizzou.
To explain roughly equal to MU, I counted Oklahoma st & kstate but not ku or Iowa St. I counted Illinois and Iowa but not Northwestern or Indiana.

Another point that can be argued but never answered is the kids that ended up at MU. Yes, they ended up in a P5 league, but some will argue they shouldn't have. And those people are probably right sometimes and wrong sometimes.

Year --- P5 kids --- >=MU kids --- SEC
2020 --- 28 -------- 23------------ 1
2019 --- 30 -------- 23 ----------- 0
2018 --- 17 -------- 14 ----------- 0
2017 --- 9 --------- 8 ------------ 2
2016 --- 20 -------- 15 ----------- 1
2015 --- 19 -------- 16 ----------- 3
2014 --- 27 -------- 24 ----------- 3

Off the top of my head in the SEC, 1 kid went to Bama, one to SCar, and the rest were Ark, Miss, MissSt.

The biggest destinations of kids that we should be concerned about are Texas and Oklahoma.

Clearly, we need to do better in state. And while I used hyperbole to emphasize my basic point above, it was that some people here act like in-state recruiting is the end all be all, and it is clearly not. There are years we don't even want the top 10. So for me to say "a lot" of years that more than 1-2 don't deserve it is probably antiquated, those years will still exist. Just becuase Ilinois or kstate will take a kid does not mean we shouldn't try to find a better one for the SEC.
