I have a question: according to this, is it pointless then to send materials and also have home visits since their is a main focus on AC scout and Campus Visits? AWESOME THREAD... It's really helped me!
Phone calls and sending materials are basically worthless. I suppose you could use them to guage where you stand with a yellow recruit sometimes late in the week but really not worth the effort.
AC scout is the cheapest way to get information on a recruits potential. That's why it has been mentioned so often. You only need to scout a recruit once.
Campus Visit is your big gun. Not only does it exert the greatest amount of influence on a recruit, you get a refund if the recruit declines the visit offer.
The AC and HC home visits are cheaper than campus visits but dont really seem to help much. I can't prove it but it's my belief that 2 HC home visits dont exert the same influence as a single campus visit. I prefer to spend a little more and get a better return.
