One Louisville Football Commit Appears To Have Reopened His Recruiting

micky crumWhen it comes to football recruiting, verbal commitments don’t really mean a whole lot, especially this early in the recruiting process. It’s not uncommon to see someone reopen their recruiting process multiple times before signing a letter of intent. In fact, some recruits remain committed to a specific school and on signing day end inking with a different school.

There are soft verbal commitments and there are firm verbal commitments, but either way, verbally committing to a school really doesn’t mean anything. With basketball it’s different because there are such fewer members of a recruiting class.

Micky Crum, a 6-foot-4, 246-pound tight end from Columbus, OH., gave Louisville a verbal commit on April 14. Crum chose Louisville over Cincinnati and Bowling Green. He is still actively being recruited by other schools.

You never want to look too deep into what a high school kid says on social media, but judging from a few Tweets that Crum sent out this week, it certainly looks like he’s wavering on his commitment.

  1. Does not sound like a Louisville type to me. Sounds like he wants to be given playing time, not earn it. May end up being glad this guy goes elsewhere.

  2. Sounds like he is being recruited over. You dont just add BGSU back to your list.

  3. Worried might sit for 3-4 years=scared of comp. peace….

  4. Like Craig said, doesn’t sound like a louisville/strong type.

  5. BGSU? Who is that?

  6. A weak level of confidence does not make us Strong(er). Let him slip away if he isn’t up to the challenge.
