    Recruiting starts after the draft list drops, anyone you recruit this season cannot appear in a game until next season. You can check out the threads from previous years to see what recruit lists look like and how results are formatted.
    Awesome... thanks... appreciate the assist. I think I have it now.

    I actually think I'm going to enjoy this format... no worrying about how long my players may remain viable... they can only play four seasons max, if I understand right.

    Correct, players graduate after playing 4 season or reaching the age of 25.

    Re: UCLA has a new coach

    So... six players are graduating, and there are only four players not on the Active roster now... how do I fill the roster in with at least two other players at this time?

    Oh... disregard... I see that we CAN sign FA's now. I hope they sign with my team in time for me to change my roster around.

    You can sign enough free agents to get you to 32 scholarships if you want. Since there is not a lot of talent left over after recruiting it would be best to sign enough to field a team and any extra to allow you to redshirt a player if you wanted to. Keep in mind, if you sign a 24 year old, he is a SR. A 23 year old would be a JR and so on. UCLA had a rough recruiting year last year and had about 9 unfilled scholarships so be patient, it might take a few years to build this up. The good news is the rosters turn over pretty fast. One word of advice is to try to balance your class sizes as you go to avoid having 10 plus scholarships to fill because history shows that is hard to do.

    Right... I had to exclude all of the 25+ year-olds, players with 4 years of experience (including years that didn't count toward experience, since they played only a few games)... it didn't leave a lot left to choose from.

    I'll get the team in shape over time, I'm sure.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Re: UCLA has a new coach

    OK, so I now have plenty of bodies on my team to be able to drop the old seniors tonight... must I offer them all scholarships?

    In other words, did I mess up my team by wanting to take a look at them at full scouting before deciding which ones to offer scholarships to this season... only now to realize that I can't drop any (presumably limiting the number of scholarships available when recruiting)?

    I see that I can choose some (either all hitters or all pitchers) to drop per the rules... when are drops done? Only preseason makes sense to me, though I'm not sure.

    Thanks!

    Don't forget free agents cannot be used if they have used up their 4 years eligibility before turning 24.

    Looks like you have some new signees you need to drop anyways. Looks like some already graduated. Rule of thumb is if they have stats, they probably already graduated, so drop those 3 or 4 guys. Plus you should already have full scouting.

    Re: UCLA has a new coach

    The thing that I thought kinda sucks is that you can’t force early graduation on anyone. If you get a 20 year old scrub, you’re stuck with him for 4 years. Just something to remember. I haven’t checked out your team, I just want new owners to know that
