    Re: Official DriveTheLane Thread

    Maybe one of you can answer this question:

    According to the "How to play" page:

    " If you reach 83 RPs, and: you have a "clear lead", offer a scholarship, and have at least 83 RPs, you will win the recruit 100% of the time "

    Does that mean I can stop spending on the recruit at 83 and consider him won? Even though someone 13 back could pass me and go all the way to 138 RP's?

    No I am pretty sure they mean at the very end. If your interpretation was right, the other team would also meet the conditions so the recruit would sign with both teams 100% of the time.

    Max Ties:

    Gabriel Meek (33), 6-3: P Scout: E-NF+N(G)+G- (+4/-4). HS stats (SG): 28/4/2/1/0/1. C20. Prefs G+G-G. 5-way tie. Thought he'd be less recruited with a net 0 rating, but instead he's #33. Should be a good scorer. All tied teams are in region. G win won't help me, but the impact will. Toss-up?

    Ramon Smith, 6-9: G scout: GF-GP(E)P+ (+4/-4). HS stats (C): 11/9/4/0/1/1. C20. Prefs: F+PP+. 3-way tie. Another guy I thought would be less recruited. But, he's tall so no. Again, all tied teams are in region, so toss up.

    Roy Wieczorek, 6-10: E scout: G-FG-P(F)F+ (+2). HS stats (C): 12/11/3/0/3/1. C18. Prefs: E-FP. 2-way tie. Once again, both local teams. No advantages.

    W3:

    Evan Wright, 6-0: F scout: GF+F-E+(F)E- (+5). HS stats (PG): 15/3/5/1/0/2. C28. Prefs: PN+F-. 1 behind leader. Leader beats me in win, but I beat them in impact. neither are local. Another toss up.
    Since last week, Aldridge has become a 0/1 lead instead of clear, one ahead. But, Wright has possibly become a clear lead. Will know tomorrow.

    L34 recruiting reveal was good. 2 maxes are clear leads, 2 other clear leads, and 3 ties, with possibly more leads after tomorrow.

    L42 recruiting going well, too. SO nice to not have to desperately recruit big men for once.

    L42 preview:

    4 clear leads, 3 max ties, 1 0/1 lead.

    Clear leads:

    David Otero, 6-3: F scout: EGF-G(E)F (+6). HS stats (SG): 24/4/2/1/0/2. Possible replacement for Barrington.

    Haden Harlan, 6-3: P scout: FP+G+E-(E)P (+5/-2). HS stats (SF): 14/5/5/0/1/1. Possible PG of the future.

    Brian Sauer, 6-4: F scout: F+PEE-(E)F+ (+6/-1). HS stats (SG): 12/5/7/0/0/1. 7 APG at 7:1 a/to ratio at SG? Another possible PG of the future.

    Ty Tiller, 6-1: G scout: EF+P-F(E)P+ (+4/-2). HS stats (PG): 22/3/1/1/0/2. He's no PG, and kinda undersized for a SG, but still. Better than most big men I have to max, lol.

    0/1 lead:
    Noah Gray, 6-11: F Scout: FGN+G(F)F (+2). HS stats (C): 9/12/1/1/3/2. Even though I don't have a spot for him, with the amount of trouble I have getting any big men to sign, I can't ignore one that falls to me in a year when I don't need them.

    Max ties:

    Alexander Hall (10), 6-6: F scout: E-E-FF(G)G (+6). HS stats (SG): 26/5/2/1/1/1. C31. 5-way tie. Prefs: F-F+F. No strong prefs. Probably a straight die roll.

    John Moore (3), 6-6: G scout: E+E-G-G+(F)E+ (+8). HS stats (SF): 27/5/4/1/1/1. C5, 8-way tie. Prefs: PPE. All about starting right away. All my good guards, and my best class overall, graduate so I guess I have as good a shot as any.

    Myles Aronson, 6-1: P scout: EEF+F+(G)E- (+7). HS stats (PG): 18/4/7/1/0/3. C12. 2-way tie. Prefs: G+P-E+. Tied team is in conference, I'm in region. Slight advantage to them. Hopefully impact sways him my way.

    One of those rare times where the worst case scenario isn't that bad. I can get by with just my leads. But, if I land one or 2 of those ties, we'll be looking good.

    Re: Official DriveTheLane Thread

    L31 Eugene couldn't get back to the final 4 but we have 2 more shots with Allen Fairclough. Recruiting:

    4/4 Justin Schiavone 6-5 SF. E-G+E+E+(F)E+ +9 on P scout. 19.0/4.9/3.0/1.1/0.8/1.2. We should be co-favorites with SLC to land him. He could start at SG or SF.
    1/1 Jaden Huber 6-8 SF. F+E+F+E+(F)E +6 on F scout. 15.5/6.0/0.8/1.3/1.3/2.2. Stats don't match the ratings. We should be slight favorites.
    1/1 Skyler Cross 6-6 SF. G-F+F+F+(F/G)F+ +1 or 2 on F scout. 17.9/6.0/1.5/0.2/0.8/1.6. Again slight favorites with F- win. The combo of good stats and lots of pluses makes me feel good about him.
    0/1 Dylan Hall 6-10 C. E-F-P+F+(F/P)F+, +1 on F scout. 15.2/9.2/0.8/1.1/2.1/1.0. Got an early clear lead but someone chased me. His scoring declined after I pursued him but he still looks ok.
    0/0 Samuel Bevans 6-2 SG. G-FGP+(F)F, +1 on P scout. 18.8/4.7/3.5/0.8/0.7/1.0. Stats basically match Schiavone with much worse scouted ratings.

    Schiavone is the only potential star here and that's if his ratings hold up. In any case we will be deep next year as the new class will likely be better than the graduating seniors.

    Re: Official DriveTheLane Thread

    In L42 my 0/1 lead became clear. So I have 5 clear leads. Don't know that I've ever had that many. I wish I could save 3 for next year.

    Lost all ties except the lowest priority one, and got 2 walk-ons. They're decent walkons, but still. I'll be starting all 3 freshmen including 2 walkons so that tells you the state of the team.

    Recruits:

    Roy Wieczorek (1/1 max tie), 6-10: E scout: G-FG-P(F)F+ (+2), Actual: GFFPFF (+1/-1). HS Stats (C): 12/11/4/0/3/1/2 on 50/28/66/53 shooting. Considering he's +0, if he comes anywhere close to his HS #'s, I'll be delighted. Because I have no good big men, he's my starting C.

    Tito Fitzsimmons (walkon), 6-2: FFGGEF (+4). HS stats (SF): 7/5/5/0/1/1/2 on 45/23/63/49 shooting. With a 5:1 assist/TO ratio, he'll get a look at PG. no scoring, but he's still an upgrade over what I had last year.

    Justin Bollinger (walkon), 6-5: GFGFGG (+4). HS stats (SG): 15/5/2/1/0/1/3 on 46/40/81/56 shooting. Looks like a decent outside shooter who doesn't turn it over. He'll get a look at SG.

    #109 class (107/104), 6th in C20.

    Tentative starters:

    PG FR Fitzsimmons FFGGEF +4
    SG FR Bollinger GFGFGG +4
    SF JR Chatman EPFENG +4
    PF SR Harrison FGGFEF +4
    C FR Wieczorek GFFPFF +0

    None of these guys would start on any of my other teams, lol.

    We got Huber, Hall and Bevans for the 58/58 class. It is only a +4 class (I was pretty off in my INT guesses), but guessing some ratings will bump up soon, otherwise can't understand how we are rated so highly. Huber may turn out to be a pretty good PF, but might not start this year. Hall is probably a career backup and Bevans might be a tweener, a bit short for SG and not smart enough for PG.

    Re: Official DriveTheLane Thread

    Wanting to turn to some good news, so here's a THREE week early L34 recruiting preview.

    2 max-ties
    2 other ties
    3 Clear Leads

    Leads:

    Aaron Spader, 7-0: G Scout: PF+P+F(G)F- (+1/-2). Ratings aren't good, but when you're desperate for size.... HS stats (C): 8/11/3/0/3/1. Looks to be a decent defender/rebounder, which is kinda my bare minimum.

    Amir Weinstein, 6-8: G scout: F-GG+P+(E)F- (+4/-1). HS stats (C): 5/10/4/1/2/2. Another non-scorer. But when you're desperate for size...

    Caden Helton, 6-4: P scout: G+FF-N+(G)F- (+2/-2). HS stats (SG): 25/3/1/1/0/1. Don't mind the N rebounding on a guard. Looks like a legit scorer.

    Non-max ties:

    Anthony Turrentine , 6-5 (1/1): G scout: GF-EF+(G)G- (+5). HS stats (PF): 14/9/4/1/2/1. Obviously OOP, should be a potential starter at 1-3. C18. Prefs: G-F+E-. Tied team is in-region, as am I. We're both in NTT, but they are #6 and undefeated, so they beat me in win.

    Richard Payne, 5-11 (2/3): G scout: E-G+N+E-(F)E (+7/-2). HS stats (PG): 32/3/1/2/0/2. C15. Prefs: F-G+G-. One of the tied teams is in-region and I beat them in Win, so it shouldn't be them (but probably will be). Match the other team pretty well in win, so comes down to impact. Obviously a 5-11 guy with N hands is problematic, but 32 PPG!

    Max ties:

    Matthew Silver (35), 6-10: F scout: FF+F+G(G)F (+2). HS stats (C): 7/10/5/1/3/1. C20. Prefs: G-E+G. 4-way tie. Tied teams are all in region, one is in conference. I'm the lowest ranked team among them by far. Probably won't win this guy. Another example of how mediocre tall players are heavily recruited in DTL.

    Shawn Hudson (26), 6-11: P scout: G-F+E+E-(P)G- (+6/-1). HS stats (C): 10/11/3/1/3/1. C17. Prefs: EGF. 3-way tie. All teams in-region. All are exact same teams as above, minus one. Meaning I probably lose on win, again. Unless I manage a deep NTT run. (I clinched regular season bid).

    Worst case scenario is Helton, Weinstein and Spader. That gives me a front-court no better than what I have now, but still better than nothing (which is what I have returning). Can't even get excited about winning one of those max-ties, because those guys are just OK, lol.

    It's working for me now. I don't know if there's an issue or not.
