The territorial draft was a novel idea conceived by USFL founder David Dixon. 
Not a "draft" in the truest sense of the term, each USFL team was given a list of colleges and universities to which they would have an exclusive opportunity to select players, claiming their USFL rights.
The territorial selections were conducted by the teams, who communicated their choices to the league office in writing.
Once "selected," a player's USFL rights belonged to that club, and "drafted" players were ineligible from selection in the regular college draft.
