In order for him to profit from this and you to lose from this he would have to take on AC scouts.One of the reasons you are getting the runaround is frankly you can't know whether he has offered a scholarship or not. If he has, there is no violation. If he has not, in order for him to actually hurt you he would have to take on an AC recruit which will likely cripple his team in the long run. If the latter is true and he really is trying to target you...its 1) one of the strangest things I've ever heard of. 2) one of the stupidest things I have ever heard of. and 3) hurts himself more then it hurts you. Is it being an ahole to you? Sure. Would I encourage anyone to do this? Of course not. Even if there are no warchests, you still get 25% of your dollar amount when you fill scholarships. Is it against the fair play guidelines? Potentially, but no one here can say for sure that it is until recruiting in this world has ended.
