Patsy Ratings - Lafayette's Class of 2018

Lafayette head coach Frank Tavani holds a fairly odd distinction: in the last four seasons, his Leopards have finished the season with a sub-.500 record, yet the Spotted Ones also have - of all things - a Patriot League championship, and a trip to the FCS Playoffs last season to show for it.

Such is life in the seven-team Patriot League: you can struggle like a Leopard in a freezer in September and October, yet thaw out in time for league play and make a run to win the Championship.

In fact it was one of the players represented in last year's Patsy Ratings, rising sophomore QB Drew Reed, that was a critical piece to their title run.  Perhaps unsurprisingly, he was a two-star rated player by all the major scouting agencies, and was a huge factor in their Patsy Rating.

This season, will the Leopards have another Reed in their class?  Will they have several?  Will they have more than several?  Will they have enough to have one of the best recruiting classes in the Patsy ratings this season?
