Questions:

Student-athlete A is a transfer student who is enrolling mid-year and will not be signing an NLI. When can Clemson begin calling him/her on an unlimited basis?

Prospect B is in high school and has signed an NLI. He/she would like her future college coach to meet his/her parents at one of his/her competition sites. If it is during a quiet period, can the coach go?

Prospect C has signed an NLI, but sustained a knee injury during the summer prior to enrollment. Prospect C has already had an official visit, is not attending summer school and will not be coming to campus except for an general orientation session. May Clemson administer a medical examination after Prospect C completes her orientation session?
