Vic had had a lot of success with a super class in Capital Camp. Probably others I'm missing. Its def a solid strat as a class like that is competitive for a title as juniors, and more than solid as sophmores. Theres just so many recruiting dollars, most coaches wont want to fight. Means you get most if not all of your top guys and can really do some deep scouting for STL recruits. Plus you have a ton of access to offer freshman starts and playing time to make your bucks go even further. Lastly, your freshman see the field from square one so you get max WE improvement from the get go, making your players better earlier. Just need a cupcake schedule that first year.
Taking sim recruits is just more of an advantage you can play as you don't need as much depth. You won't have capable underclassmen who can start after your starters graduate, since everyone takes off at once, so you really just need some capable backups for injury and stamina issues. Means you really only need 35-40 players and you can spend recruiting bucks for a full roster on them.
