the achievement guide in progress(first one on this forum) has a pretty effective way to get it check there first.

I picked Vanderbilt in the solo dynasty and picked a bunch a 1* recruits that nobody offers.

Forgot to mention Vandy already has FL and TX as recruiting pipelines.

i picked a team with 2 of the 3 pipelines then bought the dlc for an extra pipeline, the achievement unlocked right away

I used Alabama since they already have Florida as a pipeline. For my 35 recruits, I split them up between Texas and California and simmed through the season. I made sure that at the beginning of recruiting Florida was still a pipeline and I refreshed my boards with just TX and CA recruits. Simmed through recruiting and the end of the season and it unlocked first try.

Try just using ARMY! They already have all 3. No idea why, but they do have all 3 already.

I tried Michigan and didn't get the achievement but I did notice that I lost CAL as a pipeline after the season. Can anyone confirm that if you use Michigan and keep all 3 that the achievement unlocks?

Simming through a season with Michigan or Army DOES NOT give you the achievements. The easiest way to get it (takes about 10 minutes) is to start a dynasty with Vanderbilt, make sure that recruiting is set to freshman and assistance is on. Then target 35 prospects from California, all 1 or 2 stars. Sim in 4 week chunks and at the end of each chunk, sort the prospect board by interest. At the end of the season, achievement unlocked :D

Add another affirmative to this strategy. Worked first time.

Oregon has Cali. and Texas already, just recruit everyone in Florida. Oregon is a better program so it's easier to recruit with them than Vandy. Also just turn the recruiting difficulty down to Freshman

Me too I got that on one try with that method they really need to update the guide because the guide that person made was horrible.
