Can an A+ prestige at DI get on a highly ranked recruit's considering list with just a scholarship offer and a phone call? Or do you need at least an HV? Assume no one else has recruited him yet.
I ask, because one school always comes in after the first cycle with about 20 kids considering him, and I always wonder whether he's giving visits to everyone, or just throwing out phone calls and a schollie.

Can make many more promises than you intend to keep so long as you don't actually sign more of them than you can keep.

Hmm -- but in DI, top guys don't accept promises until you've put in a certain amount of effort.  I know it's a popular strategy in DII/III -- but in DI, what's the minimum amount of effort you need to get on a 4 or 5-star's considering list?

I have made it onto a considering list with promised start on a 5 star at A- prestige. It depends on what kind of effort others have put in.

this is incorrect (at least partially). its all relative. to an A+ school, a 5 star is nothing. you can get them to take starts straight away. its minutes you need effort to throw on. i think even for b prestige schools, 5 stars will take your start straight away, but its just not enough to get considered. the guy who you are talking about, is almost unquestionably doing the $110 special for all 20 of those guys (or even the 10 dollar special for the 2 stars and down)
