You called it unethical in your opening post. I think that's highly questionable. If it only happens one time, I wouldn't think twice about it. Yeah, it sucks. But if he legitimately looked at the recruiting pool and decided those were the best guys for his program, it makes sense for him to take them if he thinks he can. If you look at it from his perspective, would you really want to take what you perceived as lesser recruits just because the guys you want all happen to be considering the same school a division below yours? I wouldn't. In fact, I have taken 3 recruits from the same school (both D3, but I took advantage of having a few more openings to outspend and take the guys I wanted) in 1 recruiting period in the past. I would only worry about it if it becomes a problem. Where I would perceive an issue is if this guy isn't actually FSSing or doing his own scouting, he's taking advantage of you to do his scouting for him and saving the FSS money to win battles for players you're essentially telling him are good. I don't even think that's against the rules, per se, but I would consider it unethical. I'm sure seble would have something to say about D2 teams using high-level D3 programs as a farm system/scouting network. But again, if he scouted the guys and just thought they were the best players he could get, I see nothing wrong with it at all. I'm really surprised nobody else has said that yet. We all know recruiting isn't over 'till it's over.
