    Okay, so for those who have already completed the pre-season how many duds/gems have you found? For me, when i've scouted, i've gotten a lot of duds, and i'm wondering what everyone else is getting. And is it because were doing Heisman recruiting instead of AA or Varsity, or just my bad luck?

    I have 9 prospects that have increased with the largest being +6 and 6 prospects that have decreased largest -3. Six prospects haven't changed. With that being said, I only have three prospects scouted 70% or higher, so there's still more time for change.

    Yeah, I think the highest I got was +4 on a guy- but none of mine are higher than 70-75% either. I don't think I found any busts just yet, but there's still time I suppose. Largest decrease I've seen was -2 so far.

    Oh, and as far as your question goes- I'm pretty sure it's just bad luck. ;)

    I am doing some scouting right now and it seems like most of mine are going up some but not a lot. Does it say if the player is a dud or a gem or is it just if they go up or not?

    Well if it goes up by 5+ points the recruit is considered a gem..and yeah, as you said cyclone, pretty sure I just have terrible luck..my best recruit went down 6 points...I have a couple who have gone up 2-3 points though.

    This is definitely going to take some getting used to. It just seems so random, hard to figure who's worth going after and who isn't. Like it'd be fun to dig up some 2 or 3 star gems, but holy crap, there's a thousand to go through and ya can't scout them all. Plus, a lot less guys start out with you on their list, so filtering that way isn't quite as worthwhile as it used to be.

    I am pretty sure it is not the difficulty.


    Most of my guys went down a little. I had a small, even number of gems/busts.

    Still a lot of scouting left to go, so a lot could change.

    I think I've seen a +11 or +13.

    Those mid-60s guys are not bad to have if you don't need them to start until 3+ seasons down the road.

    You do that by winning games though, not by recruiting better people.

    Then after you start winning you get better recruits and pitches.

    Everyone isn't done with preseason. I just got back from work and I didn't even know the franchise was already up so I'll go take care of my stuff.

    So I have a question about the # of scholarships we have using the formula in the other thread. Is that the amount of total offers we can have at once, or just the total we can sign?

    Let's say my number is 15. If I only recruit 15 I'll probably end up with 7-12 of those players. Does that mean I just have to add players as I lose them? Or I can add more to my starting board and just remove players once I get my # of commits.

    You can have as many players as you'd like on your recruiting board, the limit is merely on how many scholarships you can offer at one given time. If your cap is 15, for example, you can offer 15 recruits a scholarship. If one of those players commits elsewhere, you can reoffer that scholarship to someone else, because you'd be down to only 14 offered.

    You should add a full board, and recruit the ones who have the best ratings after you scout..but obviously what you do w/ recruiting is up to you.
