Response to No, they are lying.
when my kid was being recruited, the coaches put in an email what they were offering. Then she decided which school she wanted to go and emailed the coach back, accepting the offer. Yes, as the prior poster noted, it is VERY important to get the offer in writing for the very reasons the prior poster noted.
However, it is still a verbal commitment until the signing day in February. (which of course means that if something changes (i.e. your finances or the offer)I would rescind my verbal commitment. However, not a good idea to change your mind for no good reason. These verbal commitments go both ways--you expect the school to uphold their part and they expect you to hold up yours. However, there are cases where a athlete verbally commited to a school and the coach left and the AD did not honor the verbals. Bad deal all around. So, the email is some assurance for the parent/ kid and the school.
