    OK, I'll lay it out quickly for our new coach, and for those a bit behind:

    Starting in week 3, we will be moving to AA recruiting, and placing a limit on the recruits we can take. We will be allowed 1 five star recruit, seven four star recruits, and the rest must be three star and below. We can recruit up to 72 total players. We represent this rule with the term 1-7-72.

    In addition, we may declare a single recruit of five or four star status as a "bonus" recruit. This recruit is ours if we can get him, making a 2-7-72 or 1-8-72 class possible.

    We do this to keep the CPU relevant, and it has worked well for five seasons. There are several powerhouse CPU teams.

    In this thread we will declare our bonus recruits. Once we decide, we may not change.

    For my bonus recruit, I am selecting #33 OVR recruit, and #2 DE Michael Sullivan :5stars: . He's a good irish boy from ND's home state of Indiana. Seems like a reasonable pick.

    My bonus will be the 5* DT that I'm targetting, and my other 5* will go to the HB that I'm #1 on his list for, Larry Wallace...

    Don't remember the DT's name... but i was #6 on his list.

    What's the consensus for me for this year? do I go +2 for the 7 4*'s? or no? :confused:

    If it's five star DT Johnny Washington from Wyoming, MI, then you're down a thousand points to a recruiting juggernaut and pillager of Michigan talent. That would be my mighty Irish.

    Is the bonus guy off limits to everyone? That's what I thought at least.

    Hope so, that's why I was tagging him... But if not, fuck it... I'll let it all work itself out I guess.

    Here's what I originally posted ...

    I never meant for a declared bonus to mean a buy was off limits. I just didn't want guys swinging and missing until they hit the number. I intended for some risk to remain - a possibility that we might not get what we chase, that's all. That way, it doesn't look as much like a handout.

    So basically, we can declare whoever we like, but anyone can sign anyone, as long as their within the numbers. It was part of the original pitch.

    I don't mean to make this thread confusing, but since I have a really hard time recruiting 5* guys, can I go 0-8-72 and with the bonus be 0-9-72?

    Yes, the bonus guy can be any star rating, plus if you don't have a 5 star commit, you can get another 4 star.

    Loaf is correct. You certainly can build a 0-9-72 class if you have no five star interest.

    To clarify per the dude's post that we can declare 2 four star players I have named the following as my bonus players:
    1. 4* OLB Sean Thorne from Athens, Alabama
    2. The 4 star scrambler that bdub and I are after
    If I have misread the dude's post, and can only declare one guy then it is the first guy I posted. Thanks

    I actually just allowed this for Smooth, since he has 26 guys leaving the program this year - which is more than he can possibly bring in. The rest of us (including me) are only taking one.
