The Federals as well as the other 11 charter members of the USFL were entitled to select up to 26 players via a "Territorial Draft."
The Territorial Draft wasn't a true draft in the sense of the word - teams simply sent their list of players to the Commissioner's office, and the USFL rights to those players were assigned to the selecting club. 
Each team had a designated list of five colleges and universities to choose players from.  In the Feds case, the list included Clemson, Maryland, Virginia, Richmond, and South Carolina.
