Keenan Jeppersen was a potential transfer and is irrelevant in this discussion, but a small number of kids, athletes and non athletes are let out of these contractual ED commitments all the time. With regular students it often relates to finances or changed family circumstances. Sometimes with athletes it's a coaching change or simply a change of heart. The overwhelming number of ED admits, both athletes and non athletes, keep their commitment.

What athletes do is they submit multiple applications to multiple Ivies. They are held by the Athletic Dept who get the candidates pre screened by admissions. Then if they decide to commit early in the ED cycle, they simply have the fb dept check the ED box and submit them to admissions. Technically normal ED applicants aren't allowed to even have their high schools send transcripts to other schools.

If anybody thinks athletes and non athletes are treated similarly at Ivies they should know better by now. It's not the Power 5 but there are a lot of things that get handled differently.
