    Great Recruiting Battles

    We're just 1 week into the dynasty and yet already there are tons of fierce recruiting battles goin on, i love it. It seems for me that all of my top targeted prospects i have to battle with gibby's Buckeyes and noknee's Fighting Irish. After taking a look around the dynasty, it is like this for every team, with users battling other users for top recruits. It's gonna be interesting to see how it all plays out, i have already locked up my punter of the future, and i intend to do everything possible to sign the top 2 guys on my list, RB Mark Richard and WR Tyler Richard, both of whom gibby and Noknee also are pursuing. Cant wait to see em both in the maize n blue!

    I think everyone is going to want Richard. I was happy to land 4 star recruit Brandon Davis in the first week. He's a hard hitting FS, and I'm hoping to put together a dynamite defensive backfield this class as well as focusing on offensive lineman and of course one of the fastest prospects in the nation with Richard.

    I am not sure on my recruiting class right now. I have managed to get 4 early commits 3 being 3star offensive lineman and one being a 2star lb. I am in on some big name guys and if i can get them to sign I should be in good shape

    next wk we should have some answers on recruits.

    My number one target has been HB Mitchell. Who is listed as the #3 HB but I think stats say hes #1. while .02 sec slower than top rated rb Richard. Mitchell benches 71 pounds more, squats 20 pounds more and is a c awareness vs D- for Richard.

    It has been a battle with Michigan for his services and i hope he sees the carries he will get for the tide as incentive to sign.

    #2 target has been signed. #1 OLB Robinson
    #3 target was #3 cb Singleton is close to signing(soft commit)
    #4 target ATH burns is still a battle
    #5 target #1 MLB has signed
    #6 was the #4 HB who was signed and was recruited in case i could not get Mitchell.
    # 7 is the #6 center which is a need position for me.

    I might need more strippers to close the deal on a few guys.

    smace you most likely have Mitchell locked up. i did not pay him much attention until a few weeks ago when it looked like i was going to lose the Richard sweepstakes, which i did.

    I was actually not on Mitchell that hard until a few weeks into the season. He was actually Michigans to lose. I threw him some attention one week and I jumped up to #1 on his list. i been on him since then.

    I was hoping to land Mitchell, now that I missed him. It was an area of need for me, and now I don't really have any other targets to get. Probably spread myself too thin this season with recruits. It took a huge effort just to sign Richard, a lot more time than I wanted to spend on him.

    I just landed the top FS in the country, he is my only 5 star signee. I have what looks to be a very good class in the making though, as a boatload of 4 star recruits are going to strap it up for the maize n blue

    I am happy with my class so far.

    I needed lb's, cb's, speed, and depth.

    I signed 6 five stars and two four stars so far.

    The #1 OLB
    The #1 MLB
    The #3 CB but looking at stats i think he will be the second best cb.
    The #3 HB (i think he is the best HB in the class)
    The #4 HB
    The #2 Athl who I think was a steal, he will most likely play WR

    The most wanted for me was the #3 HB.
    If we look at the stats i bet he comes in the highest rated HB and he is #1 to me. I would not trade Mitchell for any player in the class. 6' 2" 215 lbs, runs a 4.32 and has A acceleration something i missed this season. my fastest back is hurt right now and been hurt for a few weeks and is only like 89 to 90 speed.

    add the 2 four stars
    The 104th rated player the #11 Cb, and a 4 star mobile QB.

    If i get the kickers, a couple four star safeties I am close to signing, i would rate this class an A-.

    You think your running back will be your highest rated recruit?

    highest rated HB is what I was saying in my post.

    I think the # 3CB is the highest rated and him or the #1 OLB will have the highest ovr i think.

    I also still say i wouldn't trade him for any other player in the class.

    Its not an issue if his ovr # isn't that high.

    Yeah your HB should rate out higher than mine, I'm excited to see where my JUCO Tackle ends up with rating because he's pretty strong across the board on them.
