Ricky Rahne has yet to coach a game for Old Dominion, so it's far too early to judge his skills as an on-field head football coach. But the results are already in on his recruiting prowess and so far, he's done nothing but hit grand slams.
Last February, with a little help from ODU's previous coaching staff, the first-year coach signed the best recruiting class in ODU history, as rated by the 247Sports recruiting service. The class he signed in December was again rated the best in school history, and that came in even though ODU did not play in 2020.
