I was recruiting a player who was giving me positive feedback but when it came time to sign, he signed with another school. How did this happen?
A recruit is capable of changing his mind at anytime up to, and including, the minute he signs on the dotted line. Never put too much stock in anything a potential recruit might say to your face and remember that you shouldn't consider him to be signed until he makes his commitment. Other schools/coaches are continually recruiting players as well and they could swing the recruit over to their side at any point.
