'Tis the season for college offers. This is the time of the year where many basketball and football fans start the posts about college offers. It is important to remember that not all offers are the same. A Committable offer has no obligation attached to it for either the kid or the school. Many kids get these "offers" which are just points contact that have to be notified to the NCAA for compliance reasons. Others have posted before about being aware of the imaginary college sports scouts who bought a t-shirt at the mall and pretend to be associated with a school.
Beware of the poachers and hangers-on.
Summer leagues and 7v7s are a good way to get your name out there but no one gets an offer for these events without a regular HS season. This is not true in all sports but especially true in Football.
