what screen are you looking at? When I look at my recruiting board it simply says JUCO just above the left ear of the recruit. No indication of SO or JR.

I used to never recruit them, but the change in system makes them more desirable if you were to miss out on your top recruits around weeks 9-11
This sums it up perfectly. JUCO's are older, by definition, so it's almost like getting a upperclassman without having to wait. Wide receiver is one position where this can really pay off. You may regularly use 3-5 wide receivers in a spread formation. It's pretty tough to keep that stocked with 5 guys that can reliably catch the ball, even in some good programs.

The fact that you can so fully learn about a player's traits makes this less of a risk. If he's already a mid-70's in catch rating, that's a guy that could play immediately, or maybe after one year of redshirt. In that situation, it doesn't matter that you don't get all 4 years of his eligibility, because you don't need to "wait" for him to develop critical skills.

Working from memory, its in one of the player tabs (Scouting/Visits etc). Its up top near their measurements etc. Pretty sure I've been able to scan for this while hunting for recruits late in the year too.

There really shouldn't be junior college freshmen transfers. I've never seen one in the game. They go there to play not redshirt. If they are injured and have to redshirt then they likely aren't getting a D1 offer after their RS FR year. Many schools require JuCo recruits to complete associates degrees too. Thus they need two years to get that done and can't be any younger than a sophomore.

Realistically, there should be some amazing JuCo's because top kids don't always qualify. FSU, Bama et all pull in 5 star JuCo's almost every year. I'm happy with their impact though because NCAA is still working out the distribution of recruits and I'd rather keep it too few in number than too many.

It would also be an interesting piece to add to a coach's profile and recruit's profile. A coach who brings in a bunch of JuCo's could turn off recruits and attract others.

Re: Recruit question...JUCO?

I love JUCO's when building a team up. They aren't recruited heavily and can make instant impacts while I recruit depth. Seems like they are almost always gems as well.

I found it, it is in the search function. Once you put them on your board it just says JUCO.

I agree about no freshman JUCO players. I haven't heard of that happening and if it ever did it would be rare. Missouri had a running back named Damien Nash a few years ago who went to Coffeyville JC, redshirted his freshman season, tore a knee on the opening kickoff of the first game his second season. He was a sophomore when he got to Missouri despite playing only one play in JUCO. Under bad luck in the dictionary there should be a picture of Damien Nash, the poor guy couldn't catch a break.
