Does anyone know of a list of pulldown messages, or could clue me in? I'm not sure if the response of "...expecting to play at a higher level but if he doesnt get the attention you may have a shot" means I can pull him down, or do I have to wait for him to drop?

Yea thats a positive pulldown response, you're good to go

j. If you get a back-up message you can do either. All that message means is that he is currently expecting to play at a higher level. So you have two options: 1. wait for him to drop and then recruit him w/ HV or CV once he drops. 2. Pull him down with scouting trips + scholly.

Basically anything but the "he's never heard of you/you have no shot" email, you're good...generally they'll say something about his offensive/defensive set prowess as well

Not happening...

Hey Coach, thanks for the call to chat about Theodore Dewberry. From one coach to another, I don't think you have a shot here. I've never heard him mention S.W. Minnesota St. - positively.

Update...

Sent him 10 STs and the scholarship after that...messages at the end said "I think we have a great shot at landing him" etc...So I thought I was good. But he wasn't considering me yet...he then responds with "I just don't see myself playing for you next season bu I'll keep your offe in case things fall thru". Odd, but okay. I throw 3 more STs a him and now he is considering some scrub D2 school . WTF?

I think that "scrub" is spending some HV's and CV's.....doubt your ST can match those.

He was always a backup option, but sometimes it takes more than 10 STs to pull a guy down. Once the DII school put real money into him, you lost your shot at pulling him. That's why it's a high risk high reward way to go. Considering the first message, I'm sure the 3 more would have been enough to get him had no one else put in effort.
