I thought it might be interesting to see how we did in our first year of recruiting. 2012 recruits will be Juniors/RSoph this year. Who's starting? Who turned out well? Overachieving? Underachieving? In line for a solid spot? Position you didn't fill coming back to bite you? Etc. Season 1 Recruiting Thread ----------- I have 8 players from that class who currently start. All three five stars (WR Seward, TE Woods, LB Smith) along with two offensive lineman, my starting corner, my kicker/punter, and my MLB. Seward was my first big signing and he's panned out fairly well. His numbers haven't been fantastic up to this point, but he is a very solid player. His routes are extremely crisp and he gets open a decent amount. Perhaps next year when there's a better QB he'll be able to get the ball more. Smith is my favorite player on the defense because he's a bad ass. He has started at LOLB all three years so far. This year he is leading my team in tackles (26 solo), has 5 sacks, and 2 interceptions. It just shows his versatility - he doesn't really have a weak point. Woods is a big help with his 6'8" frame. He's a decent receiver and a very good blocker. I like to use him a lot in play action and for deep balls because he always has a chance for jump balls. For over achievers I'd have to go with my C Morris. He's a RSoph and is currently rated a 94. He has made the transition from guard to center beautifully. By far my most disappointing player has been my OLB recruit Fulton. He came in rated higher than any of the others, but he fucking blows. He is slow and can't cover for crap. I've been meaning to move him to DE the last 2 years, but somehow that stage always seems to come on a saturday/sunday morning and I oversleep it, lol. Hopefully he'll be less of a failure there. The rest of the class is really waiting in the wings or will be career special teamers. My QB recruit Miller will find himself in a QB battle next year. He is the highest rated out of the 3 I'll have, but one of them is a better passer and the freshman I brought in last year (5 star) is extremely shifty and is the most accurate passer on my roster. The decision may end up being all about what style I want to run, and the Balanced/Pocket/Running QB may end up with the job because of it. 4/5 of my line will be recruits from this class next year barring someone leaving early. I really wish that I would've been able to get a good DT or fullback in this class. I've got a lack of depth there now and could be in some trouble next year unless I can improvise a bit. I hate having a weak defensive line.
