I think that is behind.
This is what I have now:
I got your "full attention" message at 5 PM. Then sent a HV.
At 8 I got this: "Coach, it's down to a handful of schools - you're on my very short list, but I feel like I still need more information about the program." CLOSE but I think it's still behind.
I sent a few more HV's, at 11 I got this: "Coach, just following up on your scholarship offer. I REALLY love your program, but I have to tell you, another school looks like it may be a great fit for me too. I just can't decide yet." I think this is an AHEAD message.
Then I got these at 2, 5 and 8 (the other guy was pumping in his reserve):
2- "It would be an honor to play for you at Cal. Poly Pomona, but I'd also be honored to play for a couple of other schools too. I'm sorry, I just need more time."
5- "Coach, you have a little more selling to do - don't get me wrong, you're close, but there are other schools that have indicated a possible interest in me."
8-"Coach, it's down to a handful of schools - you're on my very short list, but I feel like I still need more information about the program."
I put it a little effort before 8 am but not enough.
