Except in a year when all 8 schools have the same AI, which has probably never happened, you are absolutely talking to the right college counsellor.

Hypothetically, assume the AI Floor is 176.

Assume that School A's lowest band is 176-187.
Assume School B's lowest band is 176-190.

If both schools want the same 3 recruits, who happen to have AIs of 179, 183, and 188, School B can only take two of them. School A can take all three, since the recruit at 188 fits into its next lowest band.

There have been many years when, working through the bands and over four years, some schools with lower AIs could, in theory, fill a two-deep with players schools with higher AIs could not admit.

Beyond the AI, historically, football admissions has also been affected by the relative timeliness of an admissions office allowing offers to be made. And it has been affected by how "tough" an admissions office is on recruits who fit into a band, especially the lower ones. Just because a recruit fits into a band does not assure the admissions office will accept him.

That should be: "since the recruit at 188 fits into its next highest band."

Thanks for the clarification.

Actually, the college counselor was speaking in the context of women's basketball.

In theory, you could have filled more than a two deep on some of the Ivy League teams with football players who were academically unreachable by ones with higher AIs. Theory is one thing, but in practice did this ever happen? I agree that the AI has limited the range of some of the schools ability to get the same kids as others with a lower AI, but in practice was it ever this bad?

Historically, at least, your first sentence is correct. In practice, no coach or administrator ever mentioned a total count, in response to your question. Cheers.
