It's that feeling you get when you stop being a recruit and start being a commit. When you're off the market and on a team. When you look a coach in the eye and tell him you want to be a part of what he has offered you. It's a huge shift in any player's life and it's all predicated on a simple, inexplicable gut feeling.
"It was this overwhelming thing," Michigan commit Jourdan Lewis (Detroit/Cass Tech) said. "It just felt right and I knew I wanted to commit right then."
