07:32 AM ET 07.01 | Once again, we are reminded that a verbal commitment is, indeed, non-binding. Via Twitter Friday, Houston high school quarterback Andrew Sharp announced that he had verbally committed to play his football at Utah. The 2014 prospect chose the Utes over offers from, among others, Arizona State, Baylor, Kansas State and Mississippi State. Less than a day later? Sharp flipped his commitment to Bill Snyder and Kansas State. Based on a post he wrote on his Facebook page, it appears his family in general and mom specifically played a role in the flip. "So my parents liked both schools, but my mom really wanted me closer to home so she can see me. So she couldn't really sleep last night and got emotional because my decision finally set in that I was going so far."

Should have went to Moo St.

Well I'd bet he didn't go to K-State because of the bag man. Unless they have a Knight, T Boone type guy I don't know about.

Calling BS on this one. If it was primarily because of his Mom and her wanting to see him play, he would have gone to Baylor...KState is still a fur piece down the road.

Has anyone done a bit of homework to analyze Sharp's prospects for earning the starting position at the above mentioned schools? That may have as much to do with his decision as anything mentioned here.

Unless, they had narrowed the choices (for whatever reason) down to Utah or K-State.

just checked the map....Manhattan is drivable (tho a long ****er) at 700+ miles...Utah is 1600+ so that would be more difficult.

Stand corrected.

Pretty much. Wanted to be recruited as a QB and only a few were doing that. Most were recruiting as an athlete.

Thanks for the skinny.

700+ miles is just an afternoon drive in West Texas.

It's a possibility that Mom wanted to watch him play on TV. Big XII coverage in Houston would be more available than Pac 12.

Folks drive that far just to go out to eat.




Of course, that's because it's the nearest "decent" restaurant...

The real question is...which will run out first, this player's college elegibility or the life expectancy of the HC?

These early "verbal committments" have become an absolute joke.

Even the letters of commitment aren't the commitment they used to be.
