not always...depends on how much money you have and how much money they have...but from the sounds of it, most likely i'd say yes.
Unless the recruit is the 2nd coming of Lebron (in which case he wouldn't even be talking to you at D3), one of the most important skills to learn is when to cut your losses and move on.
You can go broke chasing the moon, though the D3-D2 cash isn't as big of a difference as D2-D1. It's another good reason to have made plenty of additional phone calls to your "backup list", allowing you to target your Plan B's immediately without waiting another cycle for them to answer your phone call.
On that subject, I've become partial to calling coaches rather than the players. Coaches will always answer you and they will give you an idea of how recruitable the kid is. Players, on the other hand, sometimes don't even answer you or give you some fuzzy-headed nonsense about the cheerleaders at your school :)
