Verbally committed and wanting to attend another school's soccer ID camp
My daughter verbally committed to play soccer at one of her top colleges her junior year of high school. The scholarship money wasn't much but this school has been one of her favorites for years. Her other top school is having an ID camp this summer and she wants to go. She's never met this coach and thinks it would be good to attend the camp so she doesn't have any "what if's" down the road. My question is, would it be acceptable for a verbal commit to attend a 3 day ID camp at another college? Do we say something up front or just let her attend the camp (which is in another state) and see if anything comes of it? This school may not be interested in her but I think she needs that closure. I already asked her if they are interested which would she pick and she's really unsure but thinks she'd be better able to answer that after spending some time at the camp. I understand a verbal is just a verbal and bottom line is we need to do what's best for my daughter, but I also don't want to burn any bridges. Maybe this is not so abnormal, I don't know. Any feedback would be appreciated.12 replies
