RECENT INTERPRETATIONS

 

Is it permissible to provide gifts to a student-athlete

 

who has recently completed athletic eligibility?

 

No. NCAA rules restrict us from providing any kind

 

of gift or awards except those permitted by Bylaw 16.

Q. Hometown wants to host a special day for a successful Clemson student-athlete whose eligibility is exhausted and who has graduated. Is it permissible for the city to raise funds and provide those to the athlete?

A. NCAA rules would not allow funds to be raised and given to the athlete. The identity as a student-athlete remains even though eligibility is exhausted, and therefore Bylaw 16 still applies.

Q. Would it be permissible for an incoming freshman transfer student-athlete to participate in a summer foreign tour prior to starting classes?

A. No. Foreign tours are for returning team members only.

Q. Current Clemson student-athlete is an alumnus of a two-year school. The school has asked the athlete to participate in an alumni game April 15. Is it permissible?

A. No. Alumni game would be considered an outside team competition and Bylaw 17 would prohibit participation.

Q. Is it permissible for parents of an enrolled student-athlete to transport a prospect to Clemson for an athletic event?

A. This would be permissible if the student-athlete’s family knew the prospect before he/she entered the 9th grade and this is a typical activity.

 

A team has so many members that the coach is unable to host anoccasional meal at their home. Do NCAA rules allow large teams tohave an occasional meal at the school instead?

 

A. No. Hard to believe but it’s true.

 

Is it permissible to pay tutoring costs for a prospect who hassigned a NLI and is a high school senior?

 

A. No. Academic support is available only for student-athletes enrolled at Clemson.
