A non-binding verbal commitment, which is worth the paper it's not printed on, doesn't stop many schools from continuing to recruit a good player - especially that early in the recruiting process.Seeing as she verbaled so early - in 8th grade - I don't know that many, if any, other schools were able to actually "recruit" her.
True but how many coaches are going to spend time and resources going after a kid if they are a solid verbal to a team? Maybe in this case they did. Especially given she verbled in 8th grade. Do you think any coaches are spinning their wheels right now going after Ekmark? Or Turner who verbled to ND. Seems doubtful. Not saying it's impossible, but it seems unlikely.A non-binding verbal commitment, which is worth the paper it's not printed on, doesn't stop many schools from continuing to recruit a good player - especially that early in the recruiting process.
I give you a lot of credit for being blunt and realistic about your assessment of Mulkey and the Baylor situation. Any idea what happened there? She won 2 NC's and has had a ton of success there. To predict she will jump from the sinking ship for the next high profile job that comes along indicates (to me anyway) that there is more going on there than meets the eye...I am not surprised, either. I had a feeling that when Turner chose ND that Calvert would decommit as she appears to be pretty close to Turner and her dad. I predict that Calvert ends up at ND with Turner.
I don't think Baylor will land a top recruit again for a long time and I don't think Mulkey will remain at Baylor to be part of a sinking ship. I look for her to leave for the next high profile job that comes along. I bet that she wishes she had gone for the LSU job since her son will be playing baseball there and she is a LA native.
