Did Devonta Jason decommit? He is releasing a top schools list according to his Twitter.

No, or at least the coaches haven't been told so by him if he did, but I don't think he has from everything I've heard.

He's done this before and it's the norm for recruits as highly rated as he is. They commit, but still take visits and list top schools etc. like they didn't commit. It happens more often than not with these top rated guys at all schools.

I think they like the attention, as well as the opportunity to see different parts of the country for free. It's an extremely exciting time for them, as it would be for any HS player in their shoes, and they're enjoying it as much as they can. There's a ton of schools after these type recruits and a ton of pressure too. I think sometimes they have trouble saying "no" to schools in addition to taking advantage of the situation and excitement to go see several different schools/areas.

I don't like it because even if the recruit is convinced they're 100% committed and they're still taking visits and listening to other schools it gives those other schools plenty of chances to try and change their minds. Sometimes the pressure gets to them too and they flip to another school because they don't know how to handle that kind of on the spot type intense pressure. It'd be very difficult for almost any HS player to tell a bunch of adults who are pressuring the hell out of you on the spot to flip, "no" and sometimes guys cave in those situations. Sometimes they legitimately change their minds too, but either way those other schools wouldn't have nearly as much of a chance to do this if the recruit shut down their recruitment once they committed.

I don't blame the recruits for doing any of this. At that age, if I was recruited as heavily as they are, I don't know what I'd do for sure. I think I know, but never having been in that position I'm not so sure I'd have enough moral fortitude or mental strength to stand up to it all at that point in my life.
