As the title says, i don't think i ever found one before from the Youth Academy. Has anyone? Whoever doesn't know what i'm talking about, let me explain....

Every young player with good potential in the game will have a status saying like "Showing great potential" or " An exciting prospect". For example, Neymar has "An exciting prospect" while Papadopoulos has a "Showing great potential" status.

So what's the difference? A player that has a "Showing great potential" status will grow from 80 to 85, give or take a little. "An exciting prospect" is a player who will grow from 86 to 90. Now, a player with a "Has potential to be special" will grow 90 plus, yes, 90 plus! Those players will be new Messis and Ronaldos. And i just bought one from my youth academy as you can see in the picture below :



So have you found lots of those from Scouting?

I got a few kids with potentials that could hit above 90 in my youth academy and several with the "Potential to be special" in my team
My best one is a Finnish CM I promoted at the start of season 4. His OVR was 73 at the age of 16

It's now April of season 4 and that guy is still 16 but his OVR is now 77

I knew he was going to be amazing, but then he went and scored twice on his debut
He's going to be a regular already in Season 5 even though he will only be 17.

Anyway yeah I have a few youth players who are set to hit 90+ but none have started out quite so high as that kid.

73? wow, i've seen 65-68 but nothing above 70. He will be a beast.

Yea it's pretty easy to get one of these. So far in my new save I think I have about 4 that are rated that high. they also start out rated pretty high as I had a LB start out at 70ov and I had a couple midfielders around 72. The LB had a potential of 90-94 and 5 start skills

I just promoted 2 more 16 year olds who started at 71
Plus I have at least another 2 more players in my academy who are 15 and look set to be 70+ by the time they are 16

If you have the best scouts and scout the best countries (England, Spain, Germany, Portugal, Brazil etc) you should be able to find a decent amount of youth players who hit 70+ by the time they are 16

Currently my scouts are picking up players set to hit 85+ left right and centre and I am having to sell future stars because I have so many future gods in my youth team!

I scouted a German CB with it. I think he had a 73ish OVR at age 17. He plays great at defensive midfield as well, Beckenbauer-esque.

Yes! I had an Italian striker who the potential to be something special. He started around 70 at age 16 and grew rapidly. He was around 18 when I installed the latest patch which unfortunately corrupted my save file.
