Should I bother to look at 1* recruits?

I'm playing as Arkansas State, a 1* prestige school. In my first season I went 3-9 and landed 6 recruits (playing on Heisman difficulty on both recruiting and gameplay). I went after 3* and 2* and came away with six 2* lol. I didn't even look at 1*. With a team this bad should I be looking to get anyone and hope for a miraculous season?

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

I would honestly hate to see what a 1 star looks like. I've recruited some 2 stars that ended up with a 49 ovr rating so I couldn't imagine a 1 star. It's probably just as well to take a walk on. Too bad recruits are half worthless.

I'd say no. 1* are probably only as good, if not worse than, walk-ons. I'm playing as North Texas (1* prestige, All American recruiting diff.) and I targeted a couple during my first season (ended up with about 5 3*, 10 2* and 5 1*), I think the highest rated guy was like a 48. Most were around 40. They're pretty much worthless, I'm not wasting a recruiting board spot on them anymore.

Its hard for me to image a one star prestige school being able to get by without having quite a few 1 star players, unless you are recruiting on Freshman difficulty.

I think you need to look for specialists. All those guys will have a low Overall, but they could have some specific skills that allow them to be solid contributors.

In my Nebraska dynasty I had to go after a one star kicker because I lost out on all the higher ranked players, but I got lucky because he had a Kick power of C+. His power rating is in the 70's now, that is great for a one star player.

I wouldn't bother with them. They tend to clutter up the board and walk-ons are just as good as the 1* recruits.

This. I'm playing as EMU and I have had to go in depth and take a look at what the 1*'s could offer, cause in my first season it was miraculous that I was able to get one 3*, and the handful of 2*'s that I got.

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

I've been playing as a 2* prestige school and have to settle for one star prospects on occasion. They don't have anything to contribute right off the bat, but after a redshirt and a few seasons on the bench, some will progress to be contributors by their junior or senior seasons.

There's a really wide range of prospect OVR scores based on stars - I've seen 2*'s in the 40's and 2*'s in the 70's coming in.

Oh wow, this is good to know. I thought that 1*'s would have some value... but I guess not. I've been recruiting a team of 2*'s and 1*'s with my Cupcake team builder team... thinking I'd put together a solid bunch of players... Guess not
