    I got this solution from the NCAA 11 page and it also works here.

    Sim through a dynasty season up to the BCS Championship.
    Go into Recruiting and see who has the top class.
    Go to dynasty setup and create a new coach. When you select him and find a job, you have your choice of any team. Pick the team with the top class. Select the old coach, "X Coach", X being whatever school you started with, and delete him. Sim to the offseason.

    You might be able to get away with simming through offseason recruiting and keep the top class, but from here I actually did the recruiting. Just offer scholarships to any 3+ star prospects who have you 1st on their list and call them, sell pitches, make promises. It's simple enough.

    J4CKA1This wouldn't work for me. I went through twice creating a new coach right before the bowl. I got #1 both seasons and no cheevo pop. Not sure what I'm doing wrong but it's really annoying. Help!

    MakaveliI did this without making the phone calls/etc. I just simmed and checked out what the number 1 recruiting class was, then reloaded my dynasty and changed my coach again to that team and re-simmed and it worked :)

    PineConeKillerFor anyone still wanting this: This solution works. It did take me a few tries. Some things to add that let me get it:

    -I saved and exited the dynasty after I made the new coach for the #1 recruiting team. Reloaded it.
    -I simmed trough each recruiting week one by one, and checked rankings each week.

    If I just simmed everything it wouldn't unlock.

    This is similar to Mr. February in other NCAA game editions. What worked for me:
    1. Pick a strong team (Florida, Oklahoma, etc.) and sim the season (win every game including a bowl or BCS Championship game, if you think you might lose, play it and win).
    2. Sim to off-season and up to the recruiting level (save your data here, if you need to restart later, this is a good spot).
    3. You will have 35 prospects. Remove anyone less than 4-star. Search the map and pick up any 5-star prospects available, then complete your list with any 4-star players that have not committed to a college.
    4. Make telephone calls, promises, and schedule visits (after week 2), etc.
    5. Then sim week 1 (you can check your status after simming by looking at the "Top Classes" rankings).
    6. Repeat #4 and #5 for each week.
    7. After week 5, go to "Top Classes" and check your ranking. If your college is #1, just sim the remainder of the off-season. If you have a lower ranking, restart (quit and go back to #3).
    8. The achievement will unlock at the end of the off-season activities.

    It took me two attempts (finished with 8-5star prospects) to unlock the achievement. I failed my (did not make telephone calls, promises, or schedule visits, etc.) first attempt (they do make a difference).

    STEVEN LEE 20Yes I make the phone calls and offer scholarships myself all way up until week 5 and I always have the number one class. Only after the recruiting do I sim the remaining off season tasks. How do I go about clearing my cache? Thank you

    Tried the above method and I seemed to always lose the #1 spot weeks 5 or 6. So I did something different.

    In the main menu go to Team Management and edit the following teams highest rated WR / HB / QB to really bad stats.

    Ohio State
    Notre Dame*
    Penn State*
    *Optional as these teams usually recruit really well

    Now edit Texas's team and max out the stats for the QB / WR / HB / LOLB / DE

    Now sim the season till the end and 95% of the time you will win all of your games and have a #1 recruiting class at the end of the season. Now in the off season create a save and sim till the end of the recruitment phase and check if your in the #1 spot [which you should be if you followed this guide]. If you're not in the #1 spot reload the save and do it again...

    NJDuke007This worked 1st try, great solution. It did take a bit of time but well worth it, I had poor luck with other methods. One thing worth noting to reduce time, make sure you only drop the stats that speed, agility (like don't bother lowering defensive stats on offensive players & vice versa) and whatever their position specific skills are. I definitely didn't lower all the player stats and it still worked. Also did not bother lowering Notre Dame or Penn State. Thanks for a great solution!
