    Recruit Lists v2.0 Now Live!!

    I wanted to start a different thread for this so as to not pollute the other ongoing conversation that deals directly with recruiting. I'm working on a new version of the Recruit Lists site, more information, more detail and many more options!

    I want your input, what would you like to see? I've added in a quick screen capture for a sneak-peak at what the new site may entail (see attached).

    Any suggestions, recommendations, etc. will be much appreciated; I want to make this a site that can be go-to when it comes to information on Iowa State basketball recruits!

    Seriously though, I know there are things that you fanatics would like to see, so what are they? Even if you think it is a crazy idea, let me know and maybe I can come up with something that would be worthwhile! Thanks...

    Maybe a little blurb about what kind of player the prospect is. That might get into the gray area of scouting but I'd like to know what skill set the player has rather than an ambiguous star rating.

    That would definitely touch into the area of scouting and would be a copy from another site most likely, which adds (IMO) unnecessary time to each recruits page. I'll have links to each large recruiting service that may have what you are looking for, plus the goal is to have links to multiple stories about each recruit. Those stories will likely give you much more information on what type of player the prospect is (from several point of views too).

    Re: Recruit Lists v2.0 (Coming Soon)

    Not a whole lot of thoughts from my fellow CF's...

    Once again, if anyone has something they would like to see as a part of the new Recruit Lists site please post some of your opinions or ideas! Otherwise, while not an official release date I'm hoping for somewhere close to the first official game of the season (vs Lehigh)...

    A few ideas from looking at the layout you've included in the OP:

    - Embedding the highlight videos
    - Including an excerpt from each of the articles you've gathered
    - Add picture of recruit (might already be planning on doing this)

    other than that it looks good. Keep up the good work young padawan.

    Re: Recruit Lists v2.0 (Coming Soon)

    I'd like to be able to pull up every team in the conference's roster with the roster listed by recruiting class with their ratings/stars listed followed by a link to the player's rivals page. Split each recruiting class on the page with a header that ranks the class nationally and within the conference.

    Re: Recruit Lists v2.0 (Coming Soon)

    I think it looks great. The only criticism I have is maybe change the color of the players in the "Recruit Information" bar so they are not all the same. Maybe label the names in Gold for commits, Red for players that ISU seem to be pursuing the hardest (players have been mentioning ISU more in interviews, have scheduled on campus visits, etc.), and Blue for players ISU has offered/watched, but have little interest in.

    Each seems easy enough, some I have planned on already, the only negative may be w/ excerpts from each article some players' pages may become quite lengthy.

    Awesome idea for an improvement on the Big 12 recruiting lists.. I'll definitely be looking into the potential in this one!

    Good thoughts on this and I like the idea, however those links are derived automatically from each page. I can look into this, but it may not be plausible unless I hand code each link (which is doable, just time consuming).

    I'm still working on the new and improved site and have taken a few of the ideas and thoughts given to me and put them into the new edition of the website. I certainly hope that those of you who enjoy the site will continue to spread the word, I think you'll really enjoy the new look and the copious amounts of information.

    To start off, I like what you are doing here!!!

    Just a thought, and I don't know what others would think of it (and admitedly I only breezed through all the posts here) but what about a section about "personal" section where you could put info about the recruits ties to ISU or why they picked ISU over everyone else. I think it would give fans a little insight to their backgrounds and/or give people a feeling like they have a more "personal relationship" with the players.

    Hope helps and can't wait to see the site!!
