My humble observation - two 1AA schools to battle over a good 1AA OL - they could be at 40K-50K in by now. even a 1A at 18K would not be in the running - the fact that the recruit is taking CV from you means you are not out, another 1AA wouldn't even get a visit. They both probably also have FR start + PT.
FR start?  Nah, I'm planning on redshirting this guy.

On the first guy, he signed with a DIAA coach that has 22 of the last 23 seasons finishing in the top 10, 15 CC's, 7 NC appearances with 4 NC's. huge prestige disadvantage.

sorry all, I forget this is a just a game and the made up rules surely trumps real life expectations. The fact of the matter is, in real life no way no how, prestige or not, does a D1AA school land D1A talent when a scholarship is offered. Not going to happen..

I am now losing to SIM on all my recruits after being ahead at initial signing time.. just tough to take a huge sim class your first go.

In real life, we see recruits turn down D1 offers to play at D1AA all of the time.  Especially when they are local and the D1 school is not a top program or has a new coach. (or is a service academy)

I don't see any issue with the way this works on the game.

Just because it didn't work the way you wanted it to does not mean it's inaccurate reflection of reality.
