Our goal is to one day be out of CUSA, and into one of these better leagues. Ride your moral high horses about college recruiting into the sunset, but at that point (if it ever comes) you all will be thankful these verbal commitments are not binding, as we are gonna need to get some kids like this.
With that said, hope he sticks with us, especially seeing the offers he has. I don’t see any of it as a particularly better opportunity than what we are offering. He could come here and be the undisputed starter for at least 3 years if he plays well. Would be huge for the program. (Let’s not crown him a Heisman candidate if he sticks though IE: Brooks Barden)[/quote]I know kids will commit and decommit in Football, that’s the nature of the beast. I’ve never seen a staff publicly peddle a kid to other schools after he’s committed. Do that s*** behind out of the public eye.[/quote]
I don’t disagree. “I sent a quarterback to Auburn.” vs. “I sent a quarterback to Charlotte.” One of those statements looks better than the other on a high school coach’s resume. Not saying that’s the way it should be. It’s the way it is. While I have seen coaches tout kid’s offers before, I will say I haven’t really seen them tout a kid that’s already verbally committed to one place, while touting the offers of another place.[/quote]
Today, the word ‘verbal commitment’ really means verbal reservation. The school or the player can rescind at any time. Although I’m not sure what circumstances must exist for the school to rescind.
