Old video but really sheds light into the underworld of bagmen and recruiting. Around the 27:50 mark they talk about how recruits have learned that the most lucrative situation for them is to insight a bidding war between schools that are rivals i.e. Miami , FSU, UiF. So the price is driven higher. Probably what's happening when we get played by a recruit. They also mention that a bagmen NEVER pays the full amount up front for a recruit just in case said recruits changes his mind and burns them. They say the earliest you get on a recruit and make relationship with the matriarch or patriarch of the family the better.
