One key benefit for FBS recruiters as the junior college football season moves to the spring: 3-for-2 recruits becoming 3-for-3 recruits. Junior college players who aren’t full qualifiers coming out of high school typically arrive at FBS programs with three years to play two seasons of eligibility. Now they’ll have three seasons in their new program.
Positive for the kids, at least. Coaches are going to have to roster manage a little harder than before because of the extra year of eligibility.
