    This is the way I was able to get this achievement.

    First I started a dynasty and selected Oklahoma as my team.
    IMPORTANT, I also set the difficulty to Freshman and the recruiting difficulty to freshman

    As you progress through the beginning of your dynasty mode it will ask you to set up your recruiting board. When you select that it gives you the option of create prospect. I then created 9 prospects with a 5 star rating. This is the positions I created:
    You will want to make all of their home states OKLAHOMA
    City does not matter

    Now press LT one time to get to the attributes.

    It helps to know about the positions and what their primary purpose is. (a QB does not need to be good at coverage or blocking and a LE does not need to be good at throwing or catching) But if you dont you can just max all of the attributes to 99

    Now that you have 9 different positions created you will move forward to START SEASON.

    Now you may want to turn AUTOSAVE off at this point just in case.

    Once I started the season I simmed until the conference championship game. I was able to go 12-0 and then it stated that all 9 of the players committed to Oklahoma. The next highest class had 3 5 star recruits. I then simmed to the bowl game and set the quarter length to 1 MIN. I played the game and won. From here I just simmed to the end of the season and the achievement popped along with the best recruiting class.

    TIP: Don't accept the contract extension, that's the key detail that's missing
    Posted by Bobtroid Thank you!

    This is exactly how I did this so I hope it works as well for you. If anyone has any questions please send me a message I will try to help. If anyone has anything negative to say please let me know before voting negative.

    Also to point out Must go into off season recruiting week 5 for it to pop Thanks Hunter!

    Flydog92Also worth noting you can change teams by going into coach info and if the team with the #1 class before bowl season is highly ranked, you can tank the other teams, get into the NC game, win the NC game, and sim to the 5th week of recruiting in the offseason and get it. so whatever team you start out with doesnt have to be the one you end with. make sure however to change the coach to the team you had previously to controlled by CPU

    erod550I just had the achievement glitch on me after signing the contract extension. Didn't think anything of it and needed the achievement for it so I signed it. Then only Best Class Ever popped at Signing Day. I went back and loaded the save I had made right after winning the national championship and signing the contract extension and simmed to Signing Day again and it popped. So if it glitches on you, try loading a previous save and simming the offseason again before giving up and starting over.

    I picked Oklahoma, played every game, and did all recruiting manual. DO NOT accept the contract extension at the end of the year. The other achievements were popping, like Hometown Hero and Best Class ever, but not Dual Threat, until I reloaded the save, didn't do the contract extension, simmed the offseason recruiting (I was already number 1) and the achievement popped on signing day. I ended up with seven 5 stars and nine 4 star recruits. Hope this helps.

    You don't need to cheat. I played as Alabama, and got this without having to alter any recruits.

    Mr GranstaffI know it. I prefer it over Madden, actually. I only bought this edition and kept it because Mark Ingram was on the cover. laugh

    DarviatharThis was the one that I played most myself. I think we're still a few years away from where my dynasty stopped.
