I am looking back now on the recruiting I just did for D- Fordham, in the Ivy League. I had one backup option that was listed as #34 PG. I had #53, #56, #58 as well. I am sure these were probably backup options. The highest ranked player I landed was #70.
On another note, I disagree with the strategy of going hard after just one guy. I had 2 open scholarships on a very bad team, that had gone 1-26 the year before. I was able to take the money from the 2 scholarships, cut 4 players and land 6 recruits which are not that great now, but that have high potential. I am starting 3 freshmen this year. While this year may be rough, it probably will be better than 1-26, and by the time these guys get to their Junior and Senior year, we should have the prestige up to at least a D+. At that point, I will focus more on quality, when I can recruit with a better prestige. I have had good success using this method. It improves your team faster than if you hold on to the crummy players for longer. This is especially true if you are changing the offense and defense (I am not doing that in this case).
