That used to be my thinking, too. Then 2011 came along.

We moved out Billy Hite and Jim Cavanaugh to bring in Shane Beamer and Cornell Brown. Both being younger and Cornell having a Super Bowl ring. There were a lot of mitigating factors, of course, but that's an example of where going younger did not improve recruiting, and arguably hurt it quite a bit.
