Recruiting $ and Walkons Topic

So I've played quite a few seasons now but I think my understanding of the recruiting budgets and rules are still a little fuzzy so I'd like to confirm my understanding. It doesn't help that a lot of the guides and Q&As are 6+ years old. Hopefully someone can just correct me where I'm wrong
  • If you have a walk-on, you get $0 carryover
  • If you filled your open scholarships in that season, you carry-over 25% of the remaining money
  • You get $15k per open scholly in D1, but if you have 7 open due to EEs, you only get money for 6 ($90k)
  • If you have no open schollies in a year, you carry-over 100% of your money. So you're done recruiting for S10, filled your scholarships and you have $20k left over. Season starts, that goes down to $5k. S11recruiting starts, you had no SRs, no EEs plus you get $10k for S10 tournament results, gives you $15k for recruiting but no one to recruit. Season starts and you still have $15k which you'll use for S12 recruiting.
Hopefully this has made sense.

only caveat i see is if you have a walkon because an ineligible jumped out on you, you dont get the 0 carryover.

Guys - Where can I find the rule on #3 - trying to see how much $$ a guy from my conference will get when he graduates 5 seniors plus took 3 walkons this season - so he'll be recruiting 8.  Also, if you sign on with a sim-coached team that has one of those monster 10 men classes, how much $$ would you get the following season.... Thanks.

Both scenarios would have enough money for 6 recruits + post season money

You get the $$ from 6 scholarships, plus whatever carryover and postseason money.  So, at D1, 90K + extras.

Check the italicized "note" on the "How much money do I get for recruiting" question.

Thanks guys. One last question, if jobs change from one human to another, does the new coach get the carryover money?
