Can I Change my Mind after a Verbal Commitment?

The high school football recruiting process can be a lengthy one, and you may be thrilled to finally receive an offer to play at one of your top choice schools. It’s common to feel pressured to respond to offers quickly, and in many cases, you’ll do this by making a verbal commitment. This is when you tell the recruiter or coach that you are planning to play at their school. However, this verbal commitment is not a binding one. The only binding commitment is signing a written contract.

There are some cases when you may want to change your decision after making a verbal commitment. Maybe your dream school came back with a surprise offer that you would rather accept. Or perhaps the scholarship you thought you were getting from the school you made a verbal commitment to wasn’t as generous as you first thought. After making your verbal commitment, it’s important to do your research and make sure this is the school you actually want to go to. If you decide otherwise, politely let the school know you have changed your mind and will be pursuing other options next year.
