NCAA Shifts Recruiting Communication Period, Official Visits
Share:    

One year after altering the recruiting calendar, the NCAA is making changes again.

The NCAA Division I Council announced on Friday it has adopted new rules in a continued effort to curb early recruiting.

The proposal allows for communication - either from or to a coach - to begin June 15th after the sophomore year of high school, and allows official visits to begin August 1st before the junior year of high school.

The proposals will become effective at the close of the Division I Board of Directors meeting May 1.

The rules are intended to create a “phased-in recruiting approach that allows coaches to build relationships with prospective student-athletes through phone calls and other types of communication before allowing visits and off-campus contact.”

The new rules apply to tennis and sports other than football, baseball, basketball, football, lacrosse, softball and men’s ice hockey.

The early recruiting review was undertaken by a subcommittee of the Division I Student-Athlete Experience Committee. The NCAA said the committee will continue to work on regulating verbal scholarship offers.

Last year, the NCAA implemented September 1st of a recruit’s junior year of high school as the time when communication and official visits could begin. Once approved, the new rules will supercede that date.
