One time in D2 I had a player scouted during the season with high potentials in nearly every category, but relatively low starting ratings. After the season my prestige went up, and the player dropped to D3 in my searches. There is absolutely a solid player or two out there that will be listed in D3. Its worth at least a look. If you have a bunch of states scouted, you are bound to find something. Whether a player shows up in D2 or D3 searches relates to their overall rating, which is basically useless.
