Here is a dumb question. It really is just a question and not a criticism.

These girls are all Juniors this year, and will be seniors next year. How are colleges able to 'commit' to them this early, when for some they have not even seen the end of this year's report card, but for sure, they have no idea what kind of class schedule they will take next year as seniors, and how they will do.

Do they commit to them, to 'lock them up" so that they do not talk to other coaches?

From what I am learning, it is very common for water polo players to commit around this time, the summer before their senior seasons. The commitment is just verbal, but I believe that it keeps others schools from pursuing that player. I am not sure if this is an official or unwritten rule.

I assume that the school will let the recruit know exactly what classes they need to take, grades and test scores that they need to achieve, etc. in order to be admitted to the university.

The earliest that girl water polo players can officially sign their National Letter of Intent is in November of their senior years. This date varies by sport.

The schools are not committing to the students, the students are committing to the schools ‘verbally’ as opposed to ‘in-writting’, which is un-official. The commitments become official when National Letter of Intent is signed by the student and sent to the school (in the case of a scholarship offer). For DIII program or a non scholarship admit, a similar document is completed by the student and sent to the college.

A school doesn’t make a formal commitment to a student until an application is completed and submitted by the student, reviewed by the admissions office and the student is deemed an admit. A coach, like a student, can make a verbal commitment of an offer or admit, and then change their mind.

In a nutshell:
1) Coach recruits student and/or student reaches out to coach.

2) Coach tells student he/she wants them on the team, and/or student tells coach he/she plans to attend that school (verbal commit)

3) student completes application and submits to school

4) school admissions reviews app and sends acceptance letter to student.

5) coach confirms interest in student for water polo team and make official scholarship offer and send National Letter of Intent.

6) Student accepts scholarship by signing NLI and sending to coach.

Either party can back out or change their mind along the way. A school can rescind an admission for a variety of reasons and student can opt out an NLI as well. So, until a student is actually on campus and enrolled in courses nothing is 100% official. And even then there’s the option to transfer.

In the case of Stanford, the kids have already been accepted when they appear on this board. Their verbal commitments (when they are told they are getting a special app and express they want to go to Stanford) are kept confidential until they are actually accepted to Stanford. Admissions has final say and kids are not going to announce unless they have officially been accepted.

Lindsey Lucas, Miramonte and Lamorinda, Princeton. A great addition to Princeton's program. In my opinion, Lucas (a member of the youth national team) is the best goalie in the Class of 2022.

Maggie Hawkins, Campolindo and Lamorinda, Stanford. Another top-notch Northern California player chooses Stanford.

I'm surprised not to see any players listed for Cal. Do the Cal players wait to announce for any reason? Or, is it a signal that they are having trouble landing recruits?

It is interesting, but to my knowledge, Cal was also in the hiring process for a new assistant coach so they have had to balance sorting that out along with recruiting as usual. That being said, I think the school for as selective as it is will also hold off on some athletes announcing things.

Pretty sure nothing 'binding' on coaches/ schools end unless 2 months before they sign NLI

Not true for Stanford recruits. In most cases they are already admitted to the University the summer before their senior years unless they are a late recruit.
