Thanks for the great info. I suspect an "offer" from non-Ivy League schools includes a scholarship. Could you describe what an "offer" means/includes when an Ivy school extends an offer to a recruit?

Ivies do not offer scholarships.

An "offer" means nothing more than the coach is offering a roster spot to the recruit and the recruit will go through a preferential admissions process.
