I just got this achievement..... I can't say if this is a "sure fire" way to get this achievement but here is what I did to get it...

1. You HAVE to play at a Power School (any ACC, Big East, Big 10, Big 12, SEC or Pac-10 school) "I tried getting this achievement for 3+ years with NC A&T..yeah no chance"

2. Created a HS junior, 5-star recruit from your state. (so if you're coaching @ Mich. St then make sure he is from Michigan)

3. Make sure you make him you #1 target on your board.

4. Make sure to call your recruit as much as possible during his junior year (email him too, it may help)

5. In the offseason of your recurits junior-senior year, make sure you find out what summer league team he plays for and attend every game he plays in. (I've found that your recruits interest increases by attending his games even if you're simming)

6. Once you get to the next season, make sure to save your legacy.

7. Recruit your ass off!! (make sure to make your weekly phone calls, visit his house all 3 times, make sure you get a campus visit, and offer him a scholarship ASAP)

If this doesn't work the first time then "re-load" your legacy and try again, you should get this achievement

In this game, you cannot start a legacy with a top school. Instead, you have to choose from a pre-determined list of schools and make your way, as a coach, to a job offer from a power conference school.

I picked Northern Colorado and simmed every game. If I lost, I reloaded... if I won, I kept going. Now you will also have to play a couple games, so simply adjust time to 1 minute and sliders to your advantage.

After 1 year (and winning the National Championship), I was told that I hadn't been in the school long enough to get a job offer. Don't worry, that's normal ... you get job offers after 2 years, no matter how you perform with your team.

So, after 2 years (2 championship wins also), I received offers from schools, but only from mid-major and major conferences. I chose a major conference school : San Diego State Aztecs (to see which conference they are in, press RS). If no major conference schools appear, reload your game after you championship win : the job offers will differ.

After 2 other years (and champ wins) with San Diego, I received different offers, of which only one was in a power conference : Auburn Tigers, from the SEC conference. As soon as I accepted, I got the achievement "Job Offer".

After 2 other years (I know, it takes forever), I had many offers : Maryland, Wisconsin, North Carolina ... but it was with Syracuse (Orange) that I got the achievement for Top Recruit, simply because a lot of prospects came from New-York. I followed the strategy listed on the other guides to get Top Recruit (created a few prospects from Syracuse, spent all my points for recruiting each day, chose coaches with charisma).

Good luck! Once a top recruit signs, the achievement pops right away!
