What Do Folks Think of This One?

I've been meaning to post this topic since last week, when Rich Rodriguez - the coach who doesn't talk about rumor or innuendo - left West Virginia for Michigan. (It's hardly rumor or innuendo when a coach, after professing how he will not leave one school, meets with the AD and president of another school for four hours to discuss their opening.)

But back to recruiting. According to reports, before informing the folks at West Virginia that he was leaving, Rodriguez called high school quarterback Terrell Pryor. The result? Pryor no longer is interested in West Virginia and now has Michigan on "his list." Of course, that final list of five schools might be changing to scrap Tennessee and add Oregon. (Don't tell Pryor that Oregon's Mike Bellotti talked to the folks at UCLA.)

I'm curious what folks think about a coach going so far as to tell a potential recruit he's leaving before he tells his current players or his boss. (Rodriguez reportedly informed West Virginia's administrators of his plans by having a graduate assistant take a letter to the higher-ups.) Is that what things have come to in the world of college athletic recruiting?
