I don't think it's "Debbie Downer". Granted, I've only evaluated two of the eight, but this is just an assessment of the current rankings and current offer lists. And I listed all of my caveats (rankings and offers are hard to trust in April, especially this year).
The reason I said that I don't think I'm at the same excitement level as everyone else is because my texts (and Twitter @'s) seem to have the vibe that this is our best recruiting start in a long time when technically it's our worst start since 2016. Long way to go but that's what the numbers say today.
