    Please note the following recruiting restrictions:

    Scholarships
    The amount of scholarships that can be offered at any given time will be dictated by the following formula:

    A = number of seniors on your team that will graduate
    B = number of underclassmen that qualify for pro draft with aforementioned rules. So underclassmen that are 90+ and have won an award.
    C = number of walk-ons on your team. Walk-ons may be cut at any time.
    D = Three additional scholarships to provide a cushion.
    E = 70 - current amount of players currently on roster

    A + B + C + D + E = total number of available scholarships.

    • Note: Committed players count against your scholarship limit.

    Five Star Limitations

    Pushing for Paydirt
    The number of five star (5*) recruits players a program may recruit are as follows:

    • A baseline of three (3) 5* players for any program during any season
    • One (1) additional 5* player for any program that has a player win the Heisman Trophy the previous season
    • One (1) additional 5* player for any program that wins its conference the previous season
    • One (1) additional 5* player for any program that wins the BCS national championship the previous season
    Under these guidelines, the most any program can have for 5* recruits is six (6).

    Any program found in violation of this rule will be forced to cut the last 5* signing and be penalized a single combined base 5* scholarship and one cushion scholarship. (Your cushion is reduced to two and you only have two 5* players you can sign).

    Commish note: After a search of top rankings over the past decade, only one program, USC 2004 with eight, had more than six 5* recruits. While these rules may appear restrictive, I believe it to be a good combination of realism, competitive balance and rewarding on-the-field accomplishments. Please also note that during the lead up to its run of three BCS titles in four years, Alabama never topped 3 or 4 5* players in its classes. Top-tier programs are free to gorge themselves on 4* players to their hearts' content.

    The commish also reserves the right to add a 5* player scholarship as a reward for excellent content or other achievements or remove 5* player scholarships as a punishment for extreme douchebaggery. The commish may not award himself a 5* player scholarship under any circumstances.

    Please post your available scholarships in this thread. Using the formula above Nebraska has:

    17 + 0 + 0 + 3 + 2 (68) = 22 schollies available.

    18+0+0+3+2= 23

    unless Seastrunk as a 92ovr Junior counts, then it's 24. Right?

    Hopefully they fixed the walkons at the end of the offseason or this won't matter.

    Anyone else worried about their first recruiting class yet? I think I shot real low on things and have really only a ton of 2-3* guys...most of which have me at 3rd or 4th on their lists....I probably should have tried out recruiting in an offline before we started...

    My recruiting class will be filled with 2 and 3 stars, but that's probably due to my 2 star prestige. Won't be seeing any freshman that's able to start right away, that's for sure.

    I think I'll be in decent shape. Granted I am a 6 star or whatever Michigan is, but it definitely feels alot tougher. I'm targeting guys whom I wouldn't have even looked at last release.
