Here's the scenario.  An elite program turns a recruit green on Day 1 of recruiting with an AC call, an AC Scouting Trip, and Three CV.  A non-elite makes a single AC call five cycles before signing.  The non-elite is not the preferred school of the recruit.  Is there ANY way the recruit turns "yellow" and considers that non-elite school as well based on 1 AC phone call?

What say you experienced recruiters?

No way.

I guess anything is possible, but I've never seen it!

Elite:
1 AC Call
1 AC Scouting Trip
3 Campus Visits

BCS:
1 AC Call


No.  No way.

And, I'll add, if someone has told you this happened, somebody in the scenario is lying.

No, on the 1 phone call.

Agree on the lying part.

You guys are all correct.  It wouldn't happen with a single phone call and it sure as hell ain't true. 

Here's the back story.  Some guy in Wilkinson was working on a Top 200 recruit (a DB) within 360 miles of my school, an elite.  His school was almost 1000 miles away from the recruit.  It was him and a SIM.  I jump in and then it's just us two.  A few cycles before signings, he gets my kicker recruit---whose well over 1000 miles away from his school---to go from green to yellow. 

Ok.  Laughably ricidulous move on his part but whatever.  I send him email before signings saying, "Hahahahahahahahahahhaa"---nothing else---and I end up signing both the K and the DB.

He ends up pestering me via sitemail for an explanantion on my sitemail.  He knows why but he is playing stupid.  I don't respond initially then I do when he keeps sitemailing.

His explanation for the Kicker going from green to yellow....

Ahhhh...gotcha. Now it's making sense. Yeah, you probably jumped the gun on the verbal spat. I put $10 down on all the guys you had in green(like I do with ALL coaches im battling for a recruit with) so I can keep tabs on where they are with money. Sad thing is, your kicker turned yellow on an Ast Coach phone call

Unless Ronaiah Tuiasosopo is your AC, you're not greening recruits with a single phone call.  I'd give the guy's ID but I hope he's man enough to out himself in the forums.

It was me!!

MUAHAHAHAHAHA

Just kidding, I coach NIU. In case you guys are wondering, we aren't exactly a powerhouse.
