The "athlete" has historically been one of the most misrepresented prospect types in NCAA Football. For NCAA Football 13, EA Tiburon has completely overhauled prospective athletes, making them some of the most valuable recruits in Dynasty Mode.
Athletes will now excel at two or three field positions, giving them more attribute categories to unlock than any other prospect type. Through weekly scouting, you will unlock more of an athlete's ratings, which allow you to determine the on-field positions at which he might excel. That extra time spent recruiting an athlete will be well-rewarded, as their combination of elite skills and versatility gives them the chance to start immediately at multiple positions.
Highly rated athletes will add major flexibility to your recruiting classes in NCAA Football 13. The position may have been largely irrelevant in previous NCAA Football games, but athletes should be top recruiting targets in NCAA Football 13.
