Ok, here is a quick recap to give depth to my question. So, I selected a team in shambles...on purpose. Record was 12-17 last year, horrible RPI, the whole thing. They were rated a B-, figured they would drop to C+...C at worst. They dropped to C-. Then, in all my wisdom, I decided to violate my own draft principles and take a few gambles. Lol...not a good idea. So, lousy draft to boot, all on me. Team record right now is 4-5. Could easily be 0-9. We've won ugly, stealing a few close games due largely to player match ups. If I am lucky, I can steer this team to somewhere near .500 ball. So, as I approach the next recruiting class, likely as a C- again, and I chuck any ideas of "recruiting gambles", what is the reasonable maximum player rating that I should be pursuing to have a chance at landing the recruit, for my realistic sad situation. I know there are exceptions. I know I could "luck out" and get a desperate drop down. Let's just say that after the last recruiting debacle, I am going to play the percentages this time. Anyone have a "magic number" they'd like to throw my way, above which I am likely just wasting time and $$$$$?
