    Me too.

    That said, I've pretty much given up on anyone not in a pipeline state for me.

    I have North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Texas, Louisiana as pipelines.

    My 5* prestige is really kicking in. I have a bunch of very promising recruits on the radar. Just gotta see how things shake out in these first few crucial weeks.

    I have a theory about why it isn't working, but since I don't have a contact at EA, who knows.

    It could be a quick year this year for the Yellow Jackets...

    Total Players: 70
    Seniors: 9 +2
    Walk Ons: 1 (C 43 OVR)
    Available Schollies: 12


    We locked down 3 commits in week 1...

    :4stars:#2 TE Demetrius Patterson (6'4" 237 lbs. St. Mary's, GA)

    Very well rounded TE. C across the board in all catching, blocking, and running skills.

    :4stars:#15 DT Dennis Pennington (6'3" 303 lbs. Augusta, GA)

    With B strength and B block shedding I expect Dennis to develop into a good DT.

    :3stars:#19 OLB Anthony Richards (6'2" 233 lbs. Southside, AL)

    Anthony is a gem in disguise. B+ accell, C+ play rec and block shedding mixed with his B zone and man coverage seems to be a very good 4-3 LB.

    Received my first commitment of the season.

    :4stars:Ath #18 S. Wright out of Florida. He is projecting to be a solid CB for us. B spd, B+ Acc, B- Zone cv and C+ man.

    This year's class looks very promising for me. And if it turns out how it looks so far, I will have my best class thus far in 11. My only regret is having only 11 scholarships to give out...

    Texas signs their first 2 players....

    :5stars: #3 WR Gerald Moore (6'6"" 194 lbs. Claremont, CA)

    He's tall and he's got A speed.


    :4stars: #2 CB Jonathan Sanders (6'1" 187 lbs. Burleson, TX)

    B+ Man, B Zone, and B- Press. I'm looking for him to be on opposing receivers like stink on shit.

    I love how you sign a five star like it is an everyday occurrence. I've signed 1 in 8 seasons.

    What's your winning percentage of the 8 seasons, how many conference titles have you won, and how many Nation Titles do you have?

    I'm being a smart ass because despite my on field success I still recruit like a shit hole.

    Cocks landed their first recruit.

    :4stars: running back. Probably redshirt next year, but should be a starter down the line.

    Ah nice, ya I figured you were getting Ellis. I dropped him off my list already in fact, but wasnt really recruiting him. I have a few others I have my eye on, he seems solid though

    Mustang, that MLB that you are about to sign looks really good. I feel stupid in not going after him, he will be a good one. I can't remember his name, but I just didn't spend the time on him, and Im going to regret it, he is a stud.

    Yes, I am excited about him. I hope I pull through. He actually has B+ agility on a LB. I also like a couple ends I am #1 on. I may sneak 3 :4stars: guys out of California. Then I will be definitely trying to land a pipeline there. I also have a QB out of LA that looks like a Hodges clone.
