    I don't think offers would be announced by schools unless they can be accepted unconditionally.

    So as you said they haven’t offered him a scholarship....I would hear that as run the forty and if two of our other options say “no”, we will offer you a scholarship. Offering someone they can’t accept is a sure way to burn a bridge or offend someone. Either you want me to come to your school or you don’t. JMO. Also I think it deminishes the significance of a scholarship offer.

    If someone offers you something and tells you “you can’t accept this offer”, then they haven’t really offered you anything have they?

    IU education...I think silent verbals are relatively new and probably more about kids wanting to determine how people find out, i.e. press conferences or social media

    In my experience scholarship offers don't come with "contingencies". By that I mean you don't offer a kid a scholarship and say you can't commit until we hear back from whomever else first. You don't offer a scholarship unless you are prepared for someone to accept it. I think the timing of the offers kinda shows a lot. In my opinion Archie offered Carton first and then gave ample time for him to make a decision and then proceeded to offer Franklin and Newman. If Carton had committed early the offers to Franklin and Newman probably never would have happened. Now that's not the same as offering four guards and saying we're only taking one guard so the first to commit takes it.

    Personally I think it’s a good move for him. I think the biggest benefit to Newman will be learning the time management that will be required when he reaches University wherever that may be. I played two sports at IU and it’s not easy to get everything together. He mentioned that as one of his reasons for the move along with the desire to play against the best competition possible. To me he sounds like he’s got his head screwed on properly. In relationship to those two goals I think even one year will make a big difference if as he stated “he wants to make an immediate impact wherever he attends school.” (Paraphrased) I would love for him to end up at IU and I don’t think this move necessarily diminishes the odds of that happening
