The new crop always looks better before the season starts. You're comparing actual footage against a highlights package.
There's no new imports that I'm massively excited about yet. So I'm going to back in last year's group.
There weren't any of the usual major potato imports last year. Carson wasn't a good fit, but had talent. Wilbekin was a jet, Childress, Ibekwe, Conklin and Beal were all quality, who are staying, Wilson had a good year, Ervin was a proven import, McRae was pretty successful, Gladness was very good at what he was recruited for, Daniels was trying to follow Ennis, so was doomed to fail, but as far as an import goes, he played well enough.
Perry and Dennis were a bit below the level and Carson's issues were the only real negatives from that crop (Montreal didn't last long either, but we got Motum for him). Last year was a good group.
