Re: New Hockey Dboard

Isn't it true that if you break your college hockey commitment the college can report you to a credit agency? While you have the right to dispute the claim with the credit bureau, in all likelihood you won't be able to buy a car, rent an apartment or get a student loan to go to graduate school. It stays on your record for seven years.

This is definitely true. There was a thread about this on the old dboard

Re: New Hockey Dboard

Breaking your college commitment is something that doesn't look good on your permanent record.

Most guys would rather commit to an Ivy or not commit at all.

Union offered a full ride. Princeton offered grants and loans. End of story.


If this is true, it is a poor reflection on the student-athlete and his family. Did anyone force him to make his initial "commitment"? If you make a "commitment" and the school hasn't changed the parameters of the "commitment", you should honor it.

Character counts.

Oh, you mean like OW, the 7th Grader (2000) that was, at the time, the earliest NCAA commit ever, whose school (UMaine) and alum dad made a big deal out of, only to have him decommit a year later, while in 8th Grade, and commit to Harvard before he started 9th Grade? That isn't character?

These schools don't care about character. Even freakin' Harvard didn't care. If you can put the puck in the net more than the next kid the schools will find a spot for you. Go take a look at Frank Vatrone's "journey."

What does it even mean? So the kid is "committed" to Harvard before he even takes his first test in high school? Yeah right. Is the school even a party to this commitment, or is this the family PR machine?
