This is very probably a stupid question. If you have spent effort trying to get a guy to consider you and he remains staunchly undecided, is there a chance he considers you maybe towards the end of the recruiting period with no additional effort? Or will he just sign with a SIM if no other human coach touches him.....
Depends on what you mean by effort:
If all you've done is use phone calls and letters, he won't sign with you (you need at least a minimum of an AC Scout to sign a recruit).
If the recruit is not in your DIII (I'm guessing) search results, he won't sign with you, regardless of how much effort you've put in.
If you have given the guy at least one AC Scout, he's in your DIII search, and you've offered him a scholarship, he MAY sign with you.
If he is undecided (not being pursued by any other schools), he'll fade off into the ether once recruiting is done (he won't sign with any team).
