A player mentioned to me that another player has been committed for 3 years now. I asked him why I never saw that player do his public "I'm privileged and honored to announce my commitment..." post anywhere.
The player said you don't have to do it. So, I asked "Isn't that the point of committing...to tell everyone else to not bother because you're in a committed relationship? It's like wearing an engagement ring."
Player says no. You don't have to say anything to anyone or make it public. You keep it quiet and just tell another school, if they ask "Sorry, but I'm already committed."
Is that how it works? If that's the way it should work, then why does everyone make announcements about committing or update it on their player profiles?
