Army Black Knights
Offense: Ohio State
How is everyone's recruiting turning out so far? Was it as hopeless as you imagined?
Recruiting in Florida isn't a bad place to start.
Army only recruits the best. Discipline is our main focus.
Losing 1st game instantly killed what little foothold I had on some decent recruits. Not looking good
Opening season win helped, and we played Auburn tough. FSU is next and a few other tough games as well. If I can survive the first half the schedule the back 9 is much more manageable.
I've got a couple good looking four stars showing some interest. If I can have a decent recruiting class my first two seasons, I might be extending with San Jose State.
UAB just got a plethora of commits.
Army, Brown lands a highly touted QB from the south!
Sorry shake n bake but Donald Johnson gon tap that ass
Nice man! That guy's a beast!
Yeah legend he will do work! Lol
FIU is officially on the recruiting board! We landed a solid FB which this roster definitely lacked. Additionally, Anthony Brown provides some immediate help to the secondary. He could play either CB or FS, and is a candidate to redshirt as well.
Now for some star power:
Should be a major player. Hoping I can redshirt him, but he may need to contribute day one.
He'd be nice after a redshirt, for sure.
I got a JUCO ATH Ronnie Banks who will mfind some time on the field next season. Real excited about him.
UAB has a the 26th ranked recruiting class. Nice UofCWildcat.
Doing what I do. Recruiting is my specialty. Just need to win the C-USA Berth and I can call it a season
Landed an ATH who will be a STUD OLB. Also added a nice TE as well. Will post pics once I'm back at my apartment.
Western has an assload of scholarships (25) and have received an assload of commits(15). Here there are thus far (a lucky Sim Win vs rival CMU really helped as many were visiting):

All recruits on my board have either commited to me or another school. WMU is done for the regular season and may try to snag a couple in the offseason.
Coach Boda has done his job on the field this year, leading UL Lafayette to a surprising 9-2 record. He is also doing a great job recruiting so far this year.
Josh Raymond has all the tools to succeed Coach Boda's offense. He will get his shot whenever current QB Terrance Broadway leaves.
5 Star Athlete Tommy Brown surprised alot of people when he choose to commit to UL Lafayette but Brown will get his chance to play right away as UL Lafayette is a little thin a WR. Whenever Brown does see the field, he should be a big playmaker with his speed/height combo.
Jones could be a big part of the offense in a couple years. With his height, good speed and decent hands Jones has the tools to a solid WR down the road.
Bill White was a nice find. White only lacks the size and strength otherwise he would be a top recruit. White has great speed and quickness for a lineman and he is already an above average pass and run blocker. White will be starting in a couple years.
Roberts is a bit undersized but he makes up for it with good speed and quickness. He also possesses great power and finesse moves for an incoming freshman. Roberts will probably redshirt next year but once he gets on the field he should be a playmaker.
Blanchard and Brooks might both be playing as early as next year. Both have great speed elite acceleration. Brooks doesn't have the great size that Blanchard has but he is a better pass rusher and is a violent hitter who goes for the knockout every chance he gets.
This guy is landing some studs!!!!
For a roster that desperately needs bodies at TE this is a solid commitment. We were looking for a more blocking-oriented TE and Taylor fits the bill.
Jones will be a nice depth player on a not-so-deep offensive line. Run blockers are high priorities and he also has the mobility to be an effective pulling guard.
Ford has great talent for a two-star prospect. We want a "road-grater" at center who can run block. Ford will redshirt.
Battled Papa Perry early for this guy, but FAU pulled out of the race once they found 4 star OLBs that were better options. We still like Joseph who may be better suited to play inside.
This is the second commit with the last name Ford in this class, and we're very happy we landed Bryan's brother. His strength and tackling will most likely have him slide inside as well. He's a monster 3 star prospect.
Porter was targeted early in the process and is a huge addition to the secondary. His speed is good enough but his agility his fantastic. He'll need to grow as a run stopper and get better at getting off of blocks.
Our biggest priorities this recruiting class has been defensive tackle, and Martin is honestly our "safety net" in the case we don't hit on our elite targets. He will most likely backup a starter next season.
Adam Smith is a very talented and intriguing prospect. He'd be a runningback who is a freak receiver out of the backfield, but I think he'll ultimately end up at OLB. ESPN150 for FIU is nice too!
Army reels in a very talented DE:
Eric Love was a key find for the Black Knights. Love did not really get much national attention in high school due to him playing division 6 at a catholic school. Love had very impressive numbers with 54 tackles, 8 Sacks, and 17 TFL during his senior season in high school. Army is excited to have him as he will graduate early this fall and join Army for spring ball!
