Son's journey is pretty much identical to Pitching Fan's. First offer came in, then 30 mins later 2nd offer came in, both #1 & #2 on son's list. He would have loved to go to either univ and play ball. He asked both coaches for 48 hrs which they granted. We "rehearsed" the forthcoming conversations prior to him contacting the coaches with his decision. Both offers were pretty much identical initially. Son called school #1 "to be upfront and let them know school #2 also gave an offer" and he was debating which one. School #1 "found" a little more, the rest is history. I would NOT recommend turning it into a bidding war because playing with fire. What I found interesting is that years later school #2 coach said something to the effect they recruited him but was turned down. He could have made a big impact for the school. Coaches never forget I guess.
