In this situation, we assume that you only have enough money to make a scholarship offer and nothing else.
If you have come down to the final cycle of recruiting (very last cycle of signing) and you have 1 scholarship left... and you have made an offer to your #1 option who is still "yellow", but your #2 option is "green" and you also make an offer to him in that final cycle... if both of them choose you... which one would you get? The "yellow" guy that you made the offer to earlier in the process or the "green" one whom you just offered on the last cycle?
Or... is it just a toss up?
So, if you really want your #1 option, are completely screwing your chances by offering to the "green" option in the last cycle before the "yellow" makes his decision?
Just curious which way you could expect this situation to go. Thanks for any insight anyone can give,
