Recruiting Tips (NCAA 14)

I'd love to get some insight on everyone's recruiting strategy for this years game. It's actually quite different than any other NCAA game. Coach Skills really do play a HUGE role which is very satisfying. I'm a big recruiting guy and am having some trouble getting used to the new style. Any tips for success?

Re: Recruiting Tips (NCAA 14)

I'm in the same boat and came on here to see if there was any discussion on the topic. I started a dynasty with Iowa and assigned ~200-300 pts to around 20-25 recruits. I'm losing ground each week and am nowhere near getting any recruits.

Just curious if its better to go after a few big playmakers at ~500-600 pts for each recruit with the expectation that I'll have to go after some lower-level recruits that have me near their top later on in the season (in theory, after I'm leading for the playmakers)?

I only focus on like 15-18 guys and I go hard after 12 of them. I don't usually play as a recruiting powerhouse so this tactic has paid off for me many times

Take this with a grain of salt because I don't have 14 yet and I didn't even play 13. However, back when I had 12 and 11 I had a strategy of recruiting between 10 and no more than 15 guys at a time. You can really get some good ones early (I expect if you unlock the Opener skill this will translate well). Really hit those guys hard, then add guys to your list as you go once you sign some. Once you get to the offseason focus on 5 guys max and just hammer them.

You need to be using visits for guys that compliment each other. Then you have to meet the goals during each recruits visit to really max on points.

Re: Recruiting Tips (NCAA 14)

My tips

-Start out small maybe focus on 5 or 10 players,I have a full list players but really focus in only a small amount until you get your coach skills up,Spreading your points seem to get you murder because some school is putting 500 to 600 points that player a week which bring us to the next point

-Don't let a player you really want get into the offseason,In season recruiting is super important,You have to treat a player who does not sign with in the offseason almost like a loss because crazy stuff can happen,For example I am miami recruiting a 81 overall FB i am some where between 6,000 to 8,000 up on everybody i put 1,000 points into get him,Signing day comes he commits to Florida state so they spent like 9,000 points to get him.You want most of recruiting done so in offseason you can do that other teams.You have remember teams can spend their full 10,000 points on one player.Less players you really want in the offseason the better

I've been having success firing a bunch of points at recruits that are needed or good in my weak positions until They're ready for a visit, then i tone it down a little and start going after some of the small frys

Re: Recruiting Tips (NCAA 14)

I have to say, recruiting in '14 is MUCH more difficult than in previous versions. I like that it's more difficult and seems to produce more realistic results, but I'm frustrated that my classes are so small. Maybe I need to adjust my strategy, because the same strategies that I've been using to dominate recruiting in years past is definitely not working so far.

It will take some getting use your class will get bigger when you have the insta commit coaching skill.You are forced to go after some lower rated recruits and more people in your pipeline this year.Recruiting this year rightful favors big schools with big time recruiting coaches plus small school are do a good job of going after that one good player.If you are not careful your recruiting board get decimated

I don't think it's more difficult, honestly. It is different and has a learning curve but once you get over that curve and implement a good strategy, it is easy. That has been my experience so far.
