I can't speak for everyone's program but in my world it happens very often. Since I'm a D3 Coach and a pro scout I've become friends with a bunch of D1 coaches trying to get their players into pro ball. So when they run into a kid with talent and work ethic but they don't have what it takes for a D1 program they pass that info down to me. And in turn if I think that player would fit better in another program I pass that info on to other coaches. That's why a kid should never, ever burn his bridges.
