for me DIAA easiest then DII then DIA then DIII, DIII is only hard because the talent is so even across the board except a few true studs and to get those you have to be at a high prestige team. I didnt typically see those type of players becuase i hate squating at the lower levels once they adjusted the rewards.
I've currently got 2 teams in DIAA who have recruited 3 times so far. Each time I've recruited, I've learned a little trick or two that has elevated my classes each season.
1st DIAA Recruiting - Bethune-Cookman, in Camp - My first season I had to go find 21 recruits with ZERO carry over money. Had me a bit nervous, but I stuck to my plan and ended up with the #10 overall class on GDReports.com
2nd DIAA Recruiting - Tennessee- Martin, in Warner - Also my first season there, I took a few ideas from my initial class at Bethune-Cookman, tweaked it a little and ended up with the #5 overall class on GDReports.com, and had about $11,000 left over after signings.
3rd DIAA Recruiting - Bethune-Cookman, in Camp - This was my 2nd season to recruit at BC and 3rd overall at DIAA, so I started figuring things out a bit more. Finished with the #1 overall recruiting class
on GDReports.com and had around 50% of my recruiting budget still sitting there unused after signings (Around $60,000+
). Not only was this the #1 class, but it was so far above #2 that if this was a D1 school, it would have been the 32nd best class in the nation.
I think a lot of your recruiting success has to do with what fits your personal recruiting style more than anything. I'd also throw out a hint that the way the vast majority of people tell you to approach DIAA recruiting is WAY off, in my opinion
. I'll leave it at that.
