Don't Run Home to Mamma

In Dynasty, convince a homesick player to stay at your school instead of transferring.

Having the option to convince homesick players seems to be completely random. During your offseason task "Players Leaving", you will notice that some of your players will be transferring, entering the draft or graduating. Select the player that is transferring due to being homesick, then choose a promise that you would like to make to him. If the player is successfully convinced to stay, he will say something along the lines of "I think you're right coach." or "Thanks for changing my mind, coach.". Achievement will unlock after he decides to stay.

Here's a method that will save you A LOT of time, and will ensure you a chance to convince a homesick player:

First off, start up a Dynasty with ANY team and turn Autosave to OFF. Simulate the season all the way to the "End of Bowl Season" mark (NO FURTHER). This is the point where you're going to want to save your Dynasty!

Once you've saved your Dynasty, continue simulating until you reach the "Players Leaving" screen. If there aren't any players on your team that are showing up as homesick, hold  and navigate through the other schools until you find a player that is. Once you've found a player on another team that is homesick, back out and go to the "Coach Info" menu. Click  to create a coach, then choose the team that you found a player that's homesick. Go back into the Players Leaving menu and try to convince the player that's homesick. 

If you cannot convince him to stay, search for another team that has a player that's homesick and try with him. If you run out of teams, back out of your Dynasty and reload the save that we made.

The one time it has come up for me...the kid had already made up his mind and it said there was "no chance" to change his mind. I think its because i lied to him about all the girls he would have knocking on his door.

Didn't happen for me at the end of my first season. I made sure to recruit people from across the country, etc. Sucks i'll have to play a whole other season just to get to the offseason.

Go to settings and change your players info to say they are from Hawaii. Sim through a season and at the end you will have at least one "Homesick" players to convince.

Found this on another site and thought I would share. It worked for me on the second team.

Once you've saved your Dynasty, continue simulating until you reach the "Players Leaving" screen. If there aren't any players on your team that are showing up as homesick, hold LT and navigate through the other schools until you find a player that is. Once you've found a player on another team that is homesick, back out and go to the "Coach Info" menu. Click RB to create a coach, then choose the team that you found a player that's homesick. Go back into the Players Leaving menu and try to convi

#9 does work for sure. Took me 2 trys though. First time though only 2 homesick players in the whole NCAA at Airforce they both left! This will work eventually for everyone. Good time #9! thanks!

#9's post to get this is $$$$! It worked the very first time I tried it. It's very easy to do as well.

I tried #9 for 3 hours..once I went through all the schools with players homesick and getting denied, I went back several times and loaded the previous last save point up. I did it 3 times now and no success. WTF
