If not signed by the D1A school, the player will become available again, picking on the school with the next best interest, so sometimes dropping down to a D1AA school who couldn't get him interested in them when competing with any D1A schools.
No such thing as drop-down in GD. He's either in your vision or not.
he was probably referencing that if the player is in your vision then he's not technically a drop down.
that's not exactly a accurate sentiment to have due to the potential issue of the higher the vision the more likely it is for a DI to drop down to recruit the player.
most DI teams are seeking top 50-75 ranked guys, others go top 100 and others still will go top 120 or so.
as you go further up the ladder the greater the risk of running into a DI either for back up purposes or for a lost battle replacement.
heck it could even be that the player is their primary.
