The above list contains Official National Letter of Intent (NLI) signers (DI/DII), verbal commitments and walk-ons who have met the verification standards below.  Middle Hitter doesn't put the commitment into the verified category until one of the following occurs:
    A press release on the college website;
    A press release in a local paper (a link to the newspaper website is appreciated);
    The official club website lists the commitment;
    An email from the college coach (using their .edu email);
    An email from the club director or head coach (prefer their club email address);
    I know the person who informs me.
Just because someone's name is not on the above list, does not mean that they did not get an official commitment letter. It just means I have no way of confirming it.
