It is a way of slow playing a recruit. If the kid turns out to be a great recruit they can tell the recruit we offered you way back when, if he doesn't they never give him a spot. To me it is like a way of hedging your bet on a recruit. The recruit can report the offer, no one knows if it is committable or not, and the school can tell them it is committable later or never let them commit. My son has one, I didn't report or list it. To me they aren't offers.
Thank you, It was an education for me when I was looking into sending him. I only had a short period to decide. It is an amazing place. If you are down in Florida you should check it out.
CC please post any article showing that I was wrong in my statement. I would appreciate that. Thanks and Go Bucks
First off, the academics are super hard. They teach and coach kids from across the world. Many Japanese kids go to IMG for golf, which the Japanese wouldn't tolerate the American education system, especially for 70k a year. Most country's have much better education than we do now. My son is at IMG , he is a 3.98 student and is amazed at how hard the school is. He has 5 hrs of homework a night. He gets up at 5 and lifts for 1 hr. Breakfast( which is custom picked for him by a nutritionist ) then classes till 12 and his lunch. At 1:30 he has position specific drills and coaching till 3. Then a shake and a team meeting at 4. Goes to dinner at 6. Usually has 3-6 hrs of homework and in room curfew at 10:30. They have a brutal schedule and there isn't any break on grades or schooling no matter who you are or what sport you play. We play Florida teams but are not eligible to play in State tournament. We are playing tentatively , we fly to Bishop Gorman in Vegas, fly to St. Peters prep in Jersey, fly to St.Ed's in Cleveland, fly to St.Johns in D.C, then we play some top Florida teams at home. We were ranked #16 in the Nation this season , but look for us to win a National title this next season. We have some of the top players in the Nation. My son is getting bigger and has always been fast. Got a text today from his defensive coordinator. " Wow, he is fast " Oh , by the way, IMG gives scholarships. After spring ball and training my son should be 235 lbs, 6'2 and run legit high 4.4 to low 4.5 forties. There is not a better place on the planet to prepare for college football. Playing with and against the best players in the country , excellent coaching, academics, and speed and strength.
You never know who has committable offers and who doesn't . Sometimes they offer and say it isn't committable till after you come to camp and perform . Never understand uncommittable offers, they aren't really offers
If you have been to see Glackin play 3-4 times , you must be a Lebanon Warrior fan, which means you are a great judge of no talent. Jango will be leaving to attend IMG Academy. There he will get proper coaching unlike he got in their Pee Wee league or High School at Lebanon . Justin has definitely improved and gotten much better since he and Jango were teammates on St Sues 7th and 8th grade team. Jango has degressed due to the horrible program he was in. We will see what IMG does with him since it is a 69k a year school that decided Jango was going to be part of their National Championship run in 2015. Coach Fickell was very impressed with Jango in Camp. At any rate, watch Northwestern, Oregon, and MSU offer Jango in the near future. Jango loves the Bucks and would love to play alongside his old teammate and be coached by Fickell, but he understands the LB position is vey full of talent. You may have watched Marcus Freeman, but Freeeman called Jango a freak athlete with the heart of a Green Beret. Good luck to your 5-5 Warriors , maybe this is your lucky year to make the playoffs. It has only been 13 year since your last appearance. Jango is the first BCS offered Warrior in 16 years, wonder why ?
Through watching him compete and fight for what he wants, I am a huge fan.
Five offers in 2 weeks. One being a Big Ten offer from Indiana.
Jango Glackin has been to 5 camps and 5 offers. He just picked up Indiana yesterday to go with his 4 MAC offers. MSU , Michigan, and Purdue are very interested in him. Heard he had great Camps at MSU and Purdue. A kid getting 5 offers from Camps in a week is pretty impressive.
Jango Glackin OLB Lebanon Ohio 6'2 215
Jango Glackin 2016 OLB from Lebanon Ohio is another player that needs to be on that list. Been tearing up the Camps.
Jango Glackin a LB out of Lebanon Ohio should be on that list. He has put up great numbers at Camps and was a Best of the Midwest All Team . He is a 210 lbs OLB with 4.5 speed and 36 verticle.
Didn't see Jango Glackin on that list. Been seeing his combine times and offers, pretty impressive kid out of Lebanon Ohio
