I wish we knew the full details of what happened here...dshook explained it pretty well, but some/many of the particulars are missing, like mileage, state, quality, etc. I'm not saying he isn't being targeted or poached on purpose, it could very well be happening, but there have been times where another school and I are on all of the same recruits, and it's simply because of quality and proximity, not because shenanigans are afoot.
I think poaching can be a hard "crime" to prove, WIS has to make a lot of judgment calls about intangibles, intent, malice, motive? etc., so at the very least I hope they're careful...and if the team with more money gets the recruit they're seeking, I mean really, what's wrong with that? Maybe like Curly Howard, you're just a victim of circumstance?
