Showing my ignorance on this, but when do verbal commitments typically begin to occur?

Big schools have been getting verbals since the spring. Ours typically start to dribble in about this time but most kids want to see what other bigger offers they get before committing.

Phelps is an excellent back; quick, like Gay but a little bigger. Versatile. Top 50 in Kentucky. Was getting a lot of interest, including Ivies and service academies. Not sure about the HS level of competition.

2 for the price of 1. I feel fairly certain we have never had anything like this before.
We got commitments from DLs Andrew and Alex Wilcox of University Christian High in Jacksonville Fla. Identical twins.
6'0" 283 and 270.

And they are fast and athletic too. Alex' Hudl with highlights http://www.hudl.com/athlete/5603863/alex-wilcox

And Andrew http://www.hudl.com/athlete/4018944/andrew-wilcox
I noticed that their 40 yd time is 4.97. Seems like to me that is fast for a guy that weighs close to 300 lbs. And looking at their highlights they are agile and quick. And assuming they get the freshman blues when they enroll at Wofford they will at least have each other so they should not feel too homesick. Hopefully. How many players have we lost due to homesickness (girlfriend or just plain homesick) ?

We have another. DE Elijah Brown from Morristown West High (Tn.) has committed to be a Terrier. Big frame, athletic. When he fills out, he should be playmaker.
