With Recruiting out of the way until next season. I really think that this season you should focus on adding these updates to the recruiting scene. Here is my pitch:
High School Development: Here is what I mean by that: The strength of a high school's football team changes from time to time. Every class is different, and it is unknown to what a high school's individual class's talent is at. That's why we need high school development to make sure we don't have the same exact high schools from time to time. It would basically resemble real-life logic. For example, Mater Dei High School from Santa Ana, CA could be dethroned by Bishop Gorman High School from Las Vegas, NV in the year 2025. Or maybe Bergen Catholic High School from Oradell, NJ could be removed off the Top 25 High School Football Rankings list completely and replace it with... I don't know... Concord High School from Elkhart, IN. This can also be the opportunity to spotlight some high schools that have not been noticed in the high school community. Warren Township High School from Wilmette, IL has a good football team yet there is no college team (from this sim at least) that has a player from that school. I suggest this addition because one year a school will excell in the high school football community and the next they just fall flat. When I went to Glenbrook South in my first two years there, our football team was regarded as one of the best in the state -- made it to the ISHA Class 8A tournament both years. During my last two years, our team started playing terribly all of a sudden (My Senior Year, our team ended up 1-8.).
To summarize, adding a system of progressing high school and degressing high schools would help put in real-life standards as well as bringing overlooked schools -- especially schools (good or bad) who have gone unnoticed in the high school football world -- into the spotlight. So, what do you guys think? I think it's a good idea.
