I've said this before, and i'll say it again. Its a recruiting tool. You don't want the reputation of begging players to stay (see: Dabo). Nick Saban is one of the greatest recruiters of all time and he always says something along the lines of, "If you give me three years, i'll give you the NFL."
You have to remember that these recruits, above all else, want to get to the NFL. They are just trying to pick the best "ride" to get them there.
