The company I work for would like to send an offer to a college student who is graduating in August 2023 with the disclaimer that if anything changes, either party can get out of the agreement. I am suggesting to send a letter indicating that if a position is available at the time of graduation and all background pieces are met, an offer will be made at that time. What are your thoughts?

You can make an agreement now making it obligatory for him to join.
I am not sure how the legal system works in USA and whether you can sue him and whether it is worth it, in case he refuses to join.
If you are looking at either party having the right to back out, why even have an agreement.
Just send a letter saying you like his profile / skills, etc and would like to offer him a job in August 2023 and ask him to apply of the position at that time. In that case, if he applies and you don't want to give him a job, then its ok, because he is applying then.
