Are you sure about the "Players start to drop down divisions" on Day 2, 11AM?  I thought in the past I've had players send me the drop down notice as early as the 11PM cycle on Day 1.  Could definitely be wrong about that though.

I've heard people say they have had people drop before 11 AM on Day 1 but I haven't seen it.

I have had players drop to me before 11am on day two and after 8am on day five, I would agree it's uncommon though.

And most players considering two schools make their decision at 11am on day 4.

When you say "drop", you mean "dropdowns" not "pulldowns", right?

Because I've pulled down players with STs well before Day 2 at 11 a.m.

Correct.  I've sent their coach one letter to see if they're recruitable, but nothing past that and have gotten the "lets talk" message from the recruit.  Pretty certain I have had this happen one time at the 11:00 PM cycle the first night.

I've had players drop to me a 11pm right after recruiting starts, but usually not after that until 11am.

I just had a guy drop to me at 11:01 the day after recruiting starts (day 2?, but first 11:00 a.m. cycle).  This was in Wooden

They saw drops before recruiting starts?

All the human battles I have been in that  started before first signings (8:01PM Day 3) have settled at 11 am Day 4, the day after first signings.

I've personally seen this.  I've had D2 players marked on my Watch List before the prior season ended.  Then when I do a search for D3 recruits, before recruiting officially starts for the next season, these same players show up on the D3 search list.

That's because your prestige changed.

So you wouldn't consider that a dropdown scenario?

If you have an A+ prestige at D3, some recruits that show up in your D3 recruit pool would show up as D2 for a school with a lower prestige. It's not a dropdown because it's based on your prestige at the time you search for the recruits.

Gotcha. Thanks for the clarification!
