Interesting gillispie. A lot of guys on here disagree that you can't read more from the phone call responses. Perhaps you are right and they are wrong. Perhaps this recruit should choose me now now and should ignore my conference rivals for good!
a lot of people disagree? that is news to me, i thought there was a wide consensus on scholarship messages being the only that matter.
also, just FYI, having read a bunch of your posts, i have a comment - you are reading too much into the subtleties of recruiting (i dont mean that in a bad way, you are just new and dont know better yet). stuff like home/away preference and you being in a d2 school 400 miles away vs some school 600 miles away, or you being in a better conference, or better prestige, those things are all basically negligible (at least for a new coach, and most of them, for any coach). you can basically get any player willing to talk to you right now (anyone in your division search, except for a glitch here and there) to consider you for 2 home visits or 1 campus visit. its fairly cut and dry and without much texture, how that stuff works. dropdowns and pulldowns are where you need to look for some color, where you strategize, so make sure you get comfortable with those things ASAP. where and how much to scout (with FSS) is also where some interesting stuff is.
