Question about top school quick commit

Has anyone gone in and recruited a player having your school as their top choice and immediately offered a scholarship and had them commit?

I've had some commit but it seems I had to do about 20 to 30 mins of sweet talking first.

Is it possible to do a 10 min commit?

Re: Question about top school quick commit

Yes you can get a 10 min commit. Normally I wait until the first week of the season and then fill up my board instead of in the preseason. I do this so I can get atleast one four or five star player interested in me. I just look for the one with the pink diamond. Then I go and fill my board an only offer players who I am top on there list a scholarship. Normally I will get 3 instant commits the first week.

Yeah you definitely can... granted, the lower the star ranking the easier it is to get the auto commits on a 10 min first call... but I normally have a few every season, no matter the team, the recruiting difficulty, or the team prestige (star) rank.

Every week you there are a few possible recruiting helpers you can get, the x2 bonus which you will get double the points on your pitches, the unlock (a padlock behind the player) will unlock pitches for you automatically, the instant commit, and if none of those happen you will get the pink diamond. Again you will not get it every week.

Since I do not have any prospects on my board the first week I am kinda forcing the game to give me the pink diamond. This helps with lower tier schools since you normally get in the 7-10 range on the prospects board. If you are a good school you will have access to quality prospects with more interest and the pink diamond is not as helpful.

There's actually an achievement for getting an instant commit on a 1 topic call, so it very much can happen.

Re: Question about top school quick commit

This happens all the time. I count on it in my first week. I like to get 2-5. When I was Texas once I got 6 the first week.

This is by no means scientific but I have done my own little study to find out why they commit...take it for what it’s worth.

I go through the first week and offer everyone a scholarship. I record what topic came when I offered the scholarship. I reload the game and take the recruits that instant commit and find out what they value that topic. Almost every single time it was what that had as their “Most.”

Additionally, I also spend 6 hours per recruit for 2 weeks and find out what every recruit on the board has as their Most and Very High topics. I then reload and start from the beginning offering scholarships only when these topics come up.

I have done this with multiple teams over and over starting new games just to get these results.

It does not happen every time you offer and does not happen every week, (different players commit each time I reloaded) but almost always when they did instant commit, they instant commit when I had an A+ in their most and offered a scholarship when that topic come up.

This is by no means meant to be an exact test and I cannot confirm the results will work for everyone. But whenever I play I only offer scholarships when I see a topic come up that I have an A+ in to increase the chance I get an instant commit.

Like I said doing this I get 2-5 on the first week beginning each season.

That's extremely interesting EZ. I'm going to have to do some testing on that myself. Good to know for future recruiting with poorly ranked schools.
