Situational Recruiting Just a couple thoughts on team management, using my own guys as examples: Here's my Middle Linebackers: Sabino (JR) - 92 Gilbert (FR) - 85 McConnell (FR) 83 - redshirting Now, since Sabino could go pro, I should probably have a guy on my list, right? Thing is, everyone seems to always want the best available. I can understand this, but what happens if I get a five-star MLB this year (let's say he's a bonus guy)? Answer: He looks really good on my roster, and then he transfers. Now, if I get a three star (maybe from a state I want to create a pipeline in, for example), is this a better use of my scholarship? I think it is, even if I pass on a bonus guy for a three star. I'll have two new pipeline states at the start of next year, and even though I have an A+ roster, I bet I'll have fewer transfers than most. It's great to have nothing but studs on your roster, but the headaches it creates are more trouble than they're worth, if you ask me. Now, you can't argue with the success Basis is having, and Dat will be loaded soon, too, but how do you recruit when you have twenty-seven 90+ guys? How do you know what you will need? I put the over/under on transfers and guys going pro at something in the double digit range. Anyway, I try to approach my searches this way. It's probably just because I can't compete for all the studs, but I have no idea how I would go about recruiting if half my roster could very likely vanish after each season. I don't know how some of you guys manage. Anyway, there's my excuse for not keeping up. Anyone believe a word of it?
