I still really don't understand conditional offers. I mean, sure, I understand the general concept of conditions, but not the details. I'm not an ex-college football player, nor do I know any, nor any current hs players so I don't know how this plays out.
So, there are the standard conditions (graduate on time, certain grades, threshhold ACT/SAT scores, no felonies, etc.) which are obvious. If someone is a Michigan recruit, they generally meet these (unless they are Marques Slocum of Google F--k lion fame.)
But do any of you know of real conditional offers? Do they say ismw to a 3 star, "here's an offer, but you can't accept before Dec. 1, and if it is filled prior, you're sol, baby.)
Do they say, "here's an offer, but you're moving from QB to DB . . . the offer is NOT for a QB position."
Do they say, "here's an offer, but we want you to decommit if our number 1 and 2 prospects commit?"
Do they say, "here's an offer, make a decision this week, or the offer is pulled?" (iirc, Brian or TomVH said something like this might have gone down with Graves and Newsome last year.)
Is this one of those super secret things, kind of "here's the condition that we'll accept you, but we'll deny, deny, deny that we ever said this."
I have to suspect that there are some conditions . . . otherwise more of the Michigan homies or guys w 3 stars would already have accepted.
Does anyone on here know Jerome Jackson or guys on the team who can explain this? Or Tom VH, have you taked to anyone about this?
