Maybe I'm just not as connected into recruiting as others, but what would be the downside to asking these guys to commit? (assuming it's simply asking, not playing the "commit or lose your spot" game). I mean we're the worst program in the B1G. Having guys with offers from powerhouse programs commit to us would be huge.
Even if they say "yes", people are still going to recruit them. We then run the risk of them changing their minds.
The staff currently is trying the strategy of having the recruits get all the information about their choices before committing. Hopefully if a recruit makes a more informed choice, they are more likely to stick to it.
