I agree with what you're saying. If one wants SU to offer the kid (I do) one can't complain when/if we sign him.Yeah and if we were to end up with him, people can continue the we lost out on other recruits because our recruiting sucks and "settled" for him story. There is a reason the staff did not even offer.
But what has happened on this board is that when we've missed out on plan a/top 100 guys, people then start rationalizing that guys like MD, HW, GT, BS and EH were our priorities, rather than admitting they are plan b or c or even d guys.
I'm ok with offering Marcus because I think the likelihood of landing Carey or Duke is about 25%. In my opinion, Marcus would and should not be labeled a plan A player, but he wouldn't be a plan D either.
In our tenuous situation, prioritizing our plan b guys might be more prudent than going for plan a guys, missing and ending up with plan c or d guys. Just a different way of looking at it...
