Assuming 22 players verbally committed is correct, how did the Arkansas coach pare that down by the NLI signing date? He had to go back to some of those players and say sorry I changed my mind, we can't give you an NLI? Wouldn't word start to spread about a particular program over-committing, which would discourage future potential recruits from verbally "committing" to them? Not picking on Ark - just using them as an example. I don't understand how a program can get away with this without damaging their reputation?
20 signed NLIs. One of those was drafted and signed.
