Amateur Fan... You son hasn't played a game in midget yet... How is it that he was already offered an NCAA scholarship.
They have seen him play and gotten scouting reports from other sources. They have seen him play in tournaments in the winter season and spring hockey. Word travels fast in hockey circles.

If you look at any of the College committment boards (Rinknet or Chris Heinsberg) - you will see that getting offered and commiting at 14 is not that unusual. There are plenty of Americans that have verbally committed at 14-15 years of age. All the major schools (and some of the smaller schools) have at least one or more early commits.

The verbal commitment is not binding but you will not find a college that will pull back its verbal commitment to a kid once it has been offered. The college and the coach would lose all their credibilty if they reneged on a verbal commitment. They actually provide you with a written offer to support the verbal offer.
