I have a question, what is the purpose of grab/update out of vision?
There are many advantages to grabbing out of vision recruits. In general, you just get a much clearer picture of what's going on. If you want to know how many recruits are considering other schools, or how many they've signed, then you need to know about the out of vision recruits.
One of my best recruiting strategies when I last did a rebuild was to look for the backups of the top schools. I'd look for schools that had many more recruits considering them than they had scholarships. After signings started, it was usually pretty easy to figure out which of their recruits they weren't going to sign, and if any of those recruits were inside my vision, I could go after them as soon as that coach filled their last scholarship. It would be pretty tough to do something like this if you aren't grabbing out of vision recruits.
