    What is the difference in an official visit or just a visit ? And does anyone know where we take them out to eat ? If it's not listed as any official visit can you still take them out to eat ? Are we allowed to give them anything under a certain price?

    The difference is who pays the bill. Officials we pay for, unofficials the recruits pay for. There are also limits on how much can be spent on the meals also.

    I think in the past they've gone to Fogo de Chao and Capital Grille.

    2 weeks ago during the first OV weekend of the Collins' era, they went to Capital Grille Friday Night, and then Waffle House and Top Golf on Saturday

    Why bother with visits after one has committed? If OV , is it just to get the free trip? i don't blame them if so,its a once in a lifetime opportunity ...

    Commited doesn’t mean signed, lot of kids still looking for the best fit/ making sure they are at the right place.

    That sweet guitar riff at the end is underrated.

    Doesn’t a S/A only get 5 OV to schools? As many unofficial as they want?

    Keanu/Swayze duo is underrated.

    They remade that movie a few years ago. Nothing is sacred in life...

    Original Point Break is in my top 5 favorite movies ever. The remake was absolute trash

    On the unofficial visits, can "swag" be given out (hats, shirts, etc.), or are all gifts prohibited?

    You can't give gifts on official or unofficial visits. They feed you on some of the unofficial also. They usually have a buffet and they charge way under market for the quality of food you'll actually get.

    Hey, big spenders. Bet that Waffle House knocked their eyeballs back. But more to the point, when my son was pondering these things, they fed him on the "official" visits with a fairly rigidly scheduled tour and talk kind of thing, and he met most of the coaches. I took him on "unofficial" visits when we just dropped in and somebody in the athletic office would round up a football coach who showed us around, took the video, and asked questions. I was disappointed because I was always going for a major league shortstop and free World Series tickets.
