    He got a commit from the QB Charles on his visit apparently.

    Trust me. I wanted Archie to go somewhere other than ND or aOSU even more than you wanted Charles to go to Florida.

    Charles is really what I needed. He's going to be a perfect fit for me. His arm is only B-/B- but that's already better than the :3stars: guy I signed last year. That guy had B-/C+ and his arm is 82/79 (THP/THA) so I'm guessing Charles will start around 82/82. Charles will start with 87 speed, B+ agility (probably around 88ish) and a freakin' A break tackles so that'll probably be about a 95!

    This guy has RBesque skills (although I can't see his acceleration) with a decent arm to boot. I've practiced with Heffner's 82/79 arm and have had absolutely 0 problems with his accuracy (he's 5/5 for 13.2 YPC so far this year) and Charles will be even more accurate. I grabbed Hefner last year because he had great speed @ 86 so you can imagine how I felt to find an even faster QB who has an even better arm!

    I dumped ridiculous and copius amounts of time into him on the phone. I think he signed just so he could have some free time to himself without hearing me blabbering away on the phone.

    Week1 I spent as much time on him as I'd spend on 2 guys and this got me to mid yellow interest. Then I saw interest from LSU and Miami and saw Florida moving up his list (it certainly helped with me starting either 2nd or 3rd on his list) so in week2 I gave him enough time for 3 guys. This got me to high green interest and then in week 3 I once again gave him enough time for 3 guys, invited him for a visit, and offered a scholly. In all honesty, I'm very pleasantly surprised that he signed this week. I didn't even know if I would get him to a full bar this week and it seems like the vast majority of guys I sign will sit at a full bar for a few weeks before finally committing. I expected Charles to do the same.

    Congrats! It's always a really good feeling when you actually get the guy you really wanted and needed.

    B- is 81-84 if I'm not mistaken
    B+ is 87-91
    A is 92-94 or 95 if I remember correctly.

    If figured out all this stuff but I don't have the document in front of me at work.

    Has anyone seen any recruit with A+ in any category? The best I've seen is an A.

    There's a HB in TF: Coast2Coast's season 2 recruiting class with A+ spin move and I've seen A+ Agility a few times as well.

    I didn't figure these out, but those above can't be right.

    B+ is 87-91
    A is 92-94

    This leaves no room for A-.

    B- is 81-84
    B+ is 87-91

    This would leave 85-86 for B. That would have 3 ratings for B-, 5 for B+ and only 2 for B.

    You're right. A is 95-97 if I remember correctly.

    There's absolutely no congruant spread for the letter grades. They are very arbutrary.

    I'll post the spread that I found when I get home from work this evening.

    Of course, with all of my talk about Charles, with AG out of the picture, Dat will definitely sign Archie and there's absolutely no question that Archie will be a higher rated QB than Charles. I could've taken a shot at Archie as well, but he just doesn't fit my system. I'd bet that Charles will be the best combo running/throwing QB that I ever sign in this OD.

    With that said, Archie will be rated higher than Charles and he'll fit Dat's system just as perfectly as Charles fits mine. Archie will put up some huge numbers before he leaves and will definitely have better passing numbers than Charles while Charles will (obviously) have much, much better rushing numbers.

    Yeah I thought long and hard about going at Charles but I just wasnt ready to make the jump to a run first qb. Probably a good thing since I would have never put in enough time to land him by week 3.

    There's definitely a couple of good "throwing QBs" that can run out there as opposed to Charles who is a "running QB" that can throw. I'm sure you'll land a good guy for you.

    I guess I will have to make due with him when he transfers.

    How are you going to keep him and Tate Forcier happy?

    No wonder the guy has B- THP and THA, he's too damn tired.
