im going to post this at the risk of being totally redundant (from the last one).
by raw talent, these guys are not bad by any means. they are not what i consider great pickups talent-wise for your prestige (although i am in total agreement that your locale makes things difficult - i think the extra money evens things out with more experience, but for someone newer to the game, its definitely harder). but they are definitely talented enough for a solid coach to make some post seasons and get prestige up a grade or more, which is really the primary metric for success with low prestige (IMO).
my issue is on the team planning side of things (like some of the other posters). the reality is you have zero bigs now in 2 consecutive classes - thats a major issue. to compensate for having less talent that some others, you really need to be killing it from a team planning standpoint. now, in 2 seasons, you'll have 6 upperclassmen (or so, i guess 5 because of the ineligible) - of those, only 3 can start! thats really a huge it. its not the talent of the players that needs to go up - but the coordination is critical, and i think that you would be a lot better off with some better team planning.
one thing new d2 coaches often struggle with is utilizing that extra cash. in d3, you dont have much, often cant scout all that much, evals at range must be strictly limited, that kind of stuff. well, you have about double the money now, between the GLV cash and the d2/d3 scholarship money difference. a huge part of the d3 to d2 transition is learning to look under more rocks. and, you cant be afraid of a walkon here or there. you basically just have to keep looking until you find a guy who is suitable for the role you need him to play. you needed a big, preferably a guy with strong rebounding - between internationals, jucos (can redshirt a juco 2 to get a soph, or a juco 3 would give you a soph or a fr, if you redshirt), dropdowns, pulldowns, and plain old d2 freshman - theres got to be someone, somewhere! you can easily spend over 5K scouting in d2 without it being a waste of money. i thought the local bigs were kind of scarce, so i can see how you could struggle to find someone - but did you scout states far away too?
all in all, not bad, especially within the context of you being new to d2. i would work on trying to go into recruiting with a clear plan for the type of players you need, and sticking to it. the reality is the talent level of the teams between say 30th and 100th in the country, its often not that different. its the construction of the team, and how well the coach plays them, that makes such a difference. you have access to more players now that you did in d3 - so you should be MORE selective about the roles you need to fill, not just taking what is available, than you did in d3.
