This visiting other schools thing is kind of weird. Everybody visits other schools. Seems we might lose a lot of talent in th future if this keeps up.
Then tell them not to commit until they are sure they want to come to Iowa State. Take all your visits and then commit. That way you don't hold scholarships for someone that bails unexpectedly at the last minute.
I think it is a good move also. I believe our policy is this. If we offer you then you have a scholarship. If you don't take it and we offer to someone else, they might get the scholarship that we offered to you. If you take our scholarship then that is a commitment and if you schedule visits after committing then we will pull the scholarship offer because it is apparent that you are just shopping around and using us as a fallback. So don't commit unless you are sure. But realize that someone else may take your offer if we offer it to them. Also realize that once you accept the recruiting process is done. If you schedule other visits after accepting an offer then that is a sign to us that you have decommitted and reopened your recruitment. In that case we will rescind the scholarship offer.
I've thought of a way the whole "don't visit after a commit" could hurt us. If a guy has committed to us, but another coach wants him, all he has to do is persuade him to visit said school. Tell him to make sure, big life decision, and some other crap. He goes on the visit, scholly pulled, other team gets an easy commit.
