Two part. I can sign an ineligible recruit who would then be required to sit out a season... Is that right?
Next... Is a recruit's interest in my program affected by his eligibility? Are ineligible recruits less likely to show interest and sign, etc?

Posted by buddhagamer on 4/26/2014 3:25:00 AM (view original):There is a belief that the more effort put into an ineligible will make it more likely to show up... however I believe there is always some percentage chance they go juco regardless. There is also some speculation that it is near impossible to get multiple ineligibles to show up in the same recruiting season but low sample sizes haven't shown that it is possible to get more than 1.
