1st step - Target all 3* + that have you at #1
2nd step - Target the 4 recruits you want the most!
3rd step - Target all 4* above or pos. of needs that have you in their top 10
Cut your board down to about 15-20 players
Offer all players right away.
Top 4 most wanted always call for 40mins in the quick call
Try to get the recruits that have the most interest in you for a visit right away against a rival school. If you beat them the odds of landing them are greater than 80%. This in the long run will help you target your most valued recruits for a longer phone call.
If a recruit ever soft verbals to a school after you had him for a visit, call him up for 2+ hours and more than likely you will land him.
My latest class with Texas I landed 12.. 5* 11.. 4* and 2.. 3*
This strategy works for me.
Usually the 4 recruits I want the most are 5* and in step 3 it says 4* above.
Also when you get a commit, you add another player with zero offers to the board
I've use this startegy with every team I've ever used which so far is: Nebraska, Texas, Iowa State, and Marshall... at Marshall and Iowa State I will usually bring in 3-5 5*s and several 3* and 4*
