Was the the yellow guy leaning your way, if so I wouldn't offer to anybody else? Not positive who would win in your scenario but my feeling is you'd get the green recruit.
He hasn't offered the scholarship yet, so he doesn't know where he stands with the recruit.
To the OP:
A recruit will be yellow just before the very last cycle is run only if the team in the lead hasn't offered a scholarship yet; otherwise, the recruit will have already signed (this gives the team that lost the battle a chance to find a replacement).
However, if a recruit is still yellow on the very last cycle, and the team trailing has offered a scholarship, then there's a chance (I forget if it's just a chance or it's a sure thing) that the recruit will sign with the team that made the offer.
If you offer a scholarship to both the green and the yellow, then it's a tossup as to which recruit will sign with you.
