Going into my 3rd year. Took over a team that had won 5 games in 4 previous seasons. Just went 5-9 in my 2nd season. So, my question is this - when is it advisable to start looking at D-II recruits...can you even do it? I see the top D-III teams all have Freshman with 450 or higher ratings. I think in my 1st two years I got 3 guys with over 400 total rating.

jjonkowski....I think this forum is dated and the New Coaches Lounge (16) by carpediem33 is where you should be to get this answer. Good Luck! (or maybe the DIII (16) Coaches Lounge.)

You NEVER go look at DII recruits. DII recruits will show up in your DIII search if you can recruit them. If they do not show up there they will not sign with you.

I'm just curious if someone can point me to an explainer for the number used in the ratings (not the ones on the player) but the ones used in the recruiting class rankings. Just curious.

question for the pros
when setting your depth charts, for the o-line, d-line and even l-backers and db's should you list the players according to their ratings? Or for example 1="" tackle 2="" guard 3="center" 4="right" guard 5="right" tackle? D-line same way? I have always wondered about this and wondered if it applies and if placing people in certain place on the depth chart places them at different spots within? Please do tell.

The OL and DL are measured as a unit. Positioning does not matter.

If a recruit is considering more than one person, does he make his decision as soon as signing starts or can the coaches continue to battle for him even after signings have begun until he's considering only one?

taint try not to battle for a recruit until you can build up a little war chest to do it with. In DIII you just dont have enough money to waste there. Look hard there is another player undecided who is probably just as good

in pro-set, how many from each position starts? 1 qb, 5 ol, 1 te, 2 rb, 2 wr? or is that incorrect?

What's a good recruiting class for D-3, I filled my 16 scholarships with guys rated from 407-433. I have 2 with 430+, 6 in the 420's, 7 in the 410's, and 1 at 407.

Can a guy's work ethic make up for some downfalls of a recruit?
