No matter what the situation, anytime there is a verbal commit when it comes to college sports, there is always that chance that the kid could decommit and sign somewhere else. Until they sign the National Letter of Intent, a verbal commit is non-binding. They can get out of it whenever they want. Even with all of that, it is OK to get excited about a prospect committing to your school. After all, odds are they will sign with them rather than go somewhere else at the last minute.
Having said all of that, it may be pretty tough for people to get their hopes high for Louisville’s latest football “commit.” Sheldrick Redwine is a 3-star defensive back from Miami, Florida. He chose Louisville over offers from Texas, Kentucky, West Virginia, Arkansas, Cincinnati, Rutgers, and more.
The reason that people may not get excited about this one until he signs on the dotted line is the way he committed. Check out the wording on this tweet…

So we will just wait and see on this one. But when it comes to recruiting these days, that is how it is with every “commit.”
