Sometimes on the first cycle I will offer scholarships to a few more players than I have openings for, along with a couple of home visits, but only if I would be happy to sign them. If another team goes heavy on one or two of them, I often do not show up on the board. If I end up competing on some of them, I will decide if I think I can win that battle, if that player is one of my top choices, but if it's a player that is roughly equal to a player that is considering only me, I will give up, or even offer a redshirt to get him off my list so that I don't look weak and over stretched. But 12-15 for 3 players is too many in my opinion. I would say 5-6 would be my personal limit, and that would be more than I would probably offer. I might do 4-5.
