Re: Should I bother to look at 1* recruits?

Thanks for the replies guys. I completely underestimated Heisman recruiting difficulty and need to pay more attention this upcoming season with my hideous Arkansas State team. I'll keep my eye out for those specialist 1* guys.

Just a quick question, is there a way for me to look at which states are my pipeline states? Dumb question I know lol.

On the recruiting screen with all the squares, there's a square in the middle row called Prospect Map, that shows your pipeline states (they are a lighter shade color than the other states), plus it tells you your states on the Prospect Map square as well (for example, since you're Ark. St., it'll say like AK and TX in the square, those are your pipelines). Hope this makes sense

Yeah, one star recruits can add some value depending on what skill they might be good at.

I had a guy years ago when I ran a NIU dynasty on the Ps2 that was a 1 * that I just filled out the roster with because he had a nice hands rating.

He was slow, had no size or acc but he could catch. Man could he catch. He became my 3rd down guy in his sophmore season and was always clutch when I needed to pick up the first. No matter if he took a hit or not. He was starting for me as a JR and cought over 60 balls as a SR. Loved that guy, he was one of my fav Madden/NcAA guys ever.

Re: Should I bother to look at 1* recruits?

Are you guys sure 1* recruits are no better than walk-ons? I always figured any recruit would be better than leaving a spot open and having to get a walk-on.

And I don't see how you can completely ignore 1* recruits especially in the first couple of years with a 1* team. With my North Texas dynasty in year one I had a couple of positions like FB where I had to either leave the position unfilled or sign a 1* b/c there weren't many prospects at that position. I'd still rather grab a recruit, any recruit, over a walk-on. If walk-ons were just as good there would be no incentive to even look at the bottom tier players since you could just leave the position open and get an automatic walk-on to fill it.

Definitely makes sense, thanks a million.

Re: Should I bother to look at 1* recruits?

What I've done is focus on higher ranked player early on, but when most of them commit (either to you or another school, happened around week 12-13 for me) then I'll look at the 1* recruits who no one is focusing on and have me in their top 3 and try and recruit them.

However, I've noticed that as soon as I start going after them, their other two top 3 schools will too. I had a 1* ATH (C+ Arm Strength rating, so I'm guessing a QB) that no one had been recruiting by week 12, and I was his #1 school (Rice, 2* prestige). So I started working him and as soon as I put him on my board and called him, Baylor and UTEP (his #2 and #3 schools) started recruiting him too.

Re: Should I bother to look at 1* recruits?

they are worthless...Walk-ons are just as good if not better IMHO.....I had a walk-on TE end up a starter....and in Yr 3 he is only a 75 ovr but has 89 spd...89 acc...77 Cth and 87 spec cth.....Pretty beastly considering how he got on my team....(playing as Nevada BTW). He is only 6'1" though...lol

Re: Should I bother to look at 1* recruits?

If you promise three things to the new recruits in the off season you could snag a five star. In a one star dynasty in 2010 my friend signed the number one player. A DT that was a 91 OVR as a true freshman, total program changer. My god that man was blood thirsty. You could probably get one of the newer guys if you just promise them right away.
