A related question... I'm throwing money at a recruit who is considering an A prestige while I am a C. He's a pulldown and from the get-go told I'm a back-up option. He has rejected my home visit (I got the money back) and rejected my offer of a guaranteed start. He still says I'm a back up and to keep in touch.
I planned to throw a lot more money at him and battle with the A prestige. I know it's risky but A prestige looks spread a little thin. But do I have a shot at all since he has rejected my home visit and guaranteed start? Do I just send those again? Move on?
He will call you IF he is recruitable by you. You can not put in home visits unless you "pull him down" or he "drops down".
To pull him down, you need to use Scouting Trips (Scouting Trips are not refused and have some recruiting value). It normally takes 10-15 scouting trips (I normally start with 12) to pull a guy down.
He may eventually drop down.
Personally, unless you have some major advantage (you have 6 scholarhips and the other guy has only 1 or 2, you are significantly closer, he is losing battles for a large number of recruits, etc.) then I would move on. Especially at Div-3 ... there are generally some good undecided recruits available at Div-3.
