Many tend to forget that verbal commitments are only non-binding oral agreements between a recruit and a school. Thus when a recruit commits to a program, he is still free to speak with other schools. Some coaches make it clear to recruits when offering that should the player commit to their program, they strongly prefer he shut down all other communication with other coaches.
Most recruits who commit stick with their pledges and stop visiting and communicating with other schools. However, some do not and continue to "flirt" with other schools, even though they are committed to a program.
A talented receiver in Texas has Baylor head coach Art Briles sweating bullets. The nation's top dual-threat quarterback may not end up at Clemson and Kirk Ferentz's top commitment is looking around.
