Request Title: Recruiting - 3rd rd visits
Description
Would it be possible to allow recruits to visit more than 5 schools in the last round of recruiting? In the current CCEL recruiting, a few tier 1 and 2 schools invited 40-80 recruits. A lot of those recruits have 2 or 3 of their visits tied up in three schools that will only recruit a few of them at most. That likely leaves those recruits with nowhere to go and tier 2 and 3 schools short of getting a shot at them because they were lower than 5th on the list. There are quite a few recruits with 15 or more invites, some with more than 20 invites. It would be nice for those lower schools to at least have a shot if those recruits do not sign with a bigger school.
If possible to allow recruits to visit 10 or 15 schools in the final round, it could benefit the lower tier schools, which are otherwise at a disadvantage in most other aspects of recruiting.

Admin Notes
I'm not sure I completely follow. If 2-3 out of 5 visits are to Tier 1/2 schools, doesn't that leave the remaining 2-3 for Tier 3? Also, I thought I already got rid of the logic that previously had recruits be "picky" in the later recruiting rounds (they should always visit five if invited by 5+ schools).

Pythagoras A (Oct 24 18:33:02 2022 ): Saying 2-3 teams was just an example. Here are five D C players who did not sign anywhere, but obviously could have helped a lot of tier 3 teams. They did not sign anywhere because the teams they did visit didn't really want them, or used their points elsewhere. When tier 3 teams are scrambling to sign F D players, having D C players not sign anywhere does not help. 1200 T.Roberts WR Fr 3 1 2 5 1 2 4 6 7 -- ------ -- D C WR Maryland 15 S Florida 11 S USC 20 Florida St 15 R Arizona St 15 Duke 12 R Navy 11 R Oregon 13 Kansas St 16 New Hampshire 8 R The Citadel 12 Alcorn State 12 Towson 6 R pt+ Princeton 6 R Maine 6 R pt* SE Louisiana 10 Tulsa 6 R Robert Morris 6 R Connecticut 6 R Cent Conn St 7 R Wyoming 10 1681 D.Battle C Fr 0 4 1 1 3 6 1 4 6 -- ------ -- D C OL Maryland 15 S Bowling Green 16 S Florida 11 R S Delaware St 10 R S Montana 12 S Stetson 9 S N Iowa 6 P S pt* USC 20 Wake Forest 17 Kansas St 16 Arizona St 15 Mid Tenn St 6 R P PT+ Norfolk State 6 R P pt* Oregon 13 N Carolina AT 6 R pt* Charlotte 7 R The Citadel 12 R Bethune Ckmn 5 R pt+ Navy 11 Princeton 6 Wyoming 10 1867 B.Richter C Fr 0 4 3 1 3 6 1 1 10 -- ------ -- D C OL Maryland 15 S Montana 12 R S Bowling Green 16 S Florida 11 S Stetson 9 S N Iowa 6 P S USC 20 R Arizona St 15 R P Wake Forest 17 Kansas St 16 LA Monroe 7 R Oregon 13 R The Citadel 12 Wyoming 10 SE Louisiana 10 Navy 11 Princeton 6 2930 S.Moultrie DE Fr 0 4 3 4 4 4 1 2 5 -- ------ -- D C DE Bowling Green 16 S Maryland 15 S Montana 12 S Stetson 9 S Florida 11 S N Iowa 6 P S pt* USC 20 Alcorn State 12 R P Wake Forest 17 Arizona St 15 Wyoming 10 R Oregon 13 The Citadel 12 SE Louisiana 10 R Navy 11 Princeton 6 3304 J.Spears DE Fr 3 6 1 2 5 1 2 0 10 -- ------ -- D C DE Maryland 15 S Oklahoma St 13 P S Navy 11 R S Stetson 9 S Florida 11 S N Iowa 6 S USC 20 Wake Forest 17 R Florida St 15 R Cent Conn St 7 R P pt* New Hampshire 8 R pt+ Towson 6 R pt* Connecticut 6 R pt* Arizona St 15 Maine 6 R pt* Tulsa 6 R Duke 12 R The Citadel 12 Princeton 6 R Wyoming 10 Oregon 13 Robert Morris 6 R pt* SE Louisiana 10
Ron BK (Oct 27 10:35:39 2022 ): I like this, letís go 10 deep for every round of recruiting
Hubbard Crane II (Nov 17 07:51:14 2022 ): Agree with this. More visits in the 3rd round would be very good for the T3 teams. A well working and realistic 3:d round is crucial for T3 programs.
