Agree with IowaMom23. Some times they want to know that you are as serious about them as they are about you. If you won't spend money on them why should they spend money on you. Tough decision to know if they are for real or just wanting money. Missouri staff invited son to a showcase there and were impressed and were going to make offer when the head coach "retired". The new staff asked son to come to a camp specifically. Figured they were going to make offer so we went. The coaching staff was not there most of the time and were talking to each other when he came in to pitch. Threw 9 pitches and struck out three. As we were leaving, the Grad Assistant told him they would be following him. Never heard from them even though they watched several times. University of Tennessee HC had recruited him when he was at Arkansas then when he got the job at UT, he reached out immediately. We were at WWBA 17U and drove to Knoxville the next day to meet staff. They made the offer the next day. i'm convinced they wanted to know he wanted them as much as they wanted him.
