Formulating a workable plan is the foundation of every team's effort on the recruiting trail.
Coaches watch a ton of tape, work their connections in the high school ranks and see a ton of names come across their desk. They then whittle their lists down and make a plan as to how they will go about luring their top targets to their campus.
Each team has a main target, a No. 1 must-have guy on their recruiting list every year. Today, by using the final AP Poll for the 2012 season, we're going to give you the top target for each top-25 team.
