We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

We have a kid who has been committed for months from Florida who still hasn't visited. But he made it out to Minnesota this past weekend. I don't get why kids would commit without ever having visited a place. He's still a PSU "commit" and at this point we're just hoping to get a visit. It's weird.
Why would it be hypocritical?
If there is mutual interest, any coach will and should pursue.
This is what happened with Dawson.
There is nothing hypocritical with telling recruits that if you take an official visit elsewhere, we will no longer hold your spot in favor of someone else who wants the spot more.
Nothing more, nothing less.
Edit: Also, by turning away other potential commits, it shows the staff is committed to its recruits even if that recruit may be higher rated. The staff showed their confidence in that player and followed through with their promise.

That's fair. I don't understand the need for Michigan to do it, but I get that the B1G does things differently.
Hypothetically speaking though... I'm all for coaches recruiting kids, even if they are committed elsewhere. However, I do find it hypocritical that coaches who don't allow their committed recruits to visit elsewhere while committed, but pursue recruits who are committed somewhere else and allow them to visit their school. I understand the strategy, but in terms of CFB recruiting morality... If CBH or other coaches with similar policies expect their recruits to honor their commitments to their school, shouldn't these coaches respect the commitments of recruits committed to other schools? Or is this not about morality, but a way to just lock in recruits while actively pursuing others.
unfortunately kids get caught up in the moment. I like the policy and good for UM..
How does that make sense?
If a commit visits, by way of that policy, the coaching staff would not consider him committed to any school...
Didn't yall just drop a player or two?
Yep.. having a LB who we didn't offer commit to MSU, and having a kid that has switched states twice in a couple years, and just had his father die want to take visits means Cass is no longer a pipeline.
Drawing a blank who are you talking about?
You must not follow SEC recruiting closely. Happens every year to every team pretty much down here. I guess we are used to it.
I could be wrong, but I thought you'll recently dropped a low ranked player.
I dont believe so. Conley is talking about visiting Oregon, but he is not dropped nor is he lower ranked.
Yea that's another thing that does not happen down here. Last years Bama/LSU and this years Bama/LSU is literally the who's who of recruits. Our commits on their sidelines last year and their commits will be on ours this year on their visits. Recruits from all over the nation committed everywhere will be there and from reports our coaches love it.
Nah I know who he is. It was some guy I'd never heard of who was the lowest ranked player in your class, fell out of your class with some lame excuse. Not sure how I could look up the name. Like I said, I could be wrong but I remember hearing this like 2-3 months ago.
Our lowest ranked recruit is and has been a long snapper and he is still commited. Last year an olinemen from Cincy decommited and decided he wanted to stay closer to home and his gf. But he wasnt rated that low. idk
I know what you are thinking of, but that never happened. It was just a huge rumor that was spread by some salty OSU writers.
You are thinking of Jaron Dukes
Go Blue and Go Titans!
Answer I've been looking for. Thanks.
You never even posted in this thread, but bump it two months later.....D BAG.
Our quarterback does front flips, suck it.

Not sure I agree, need bigger sample size.
Webb is going to look nice in the Maize n' Blue as well.
As will Weber.
