Recruiting quality prospective student-athletes are the livelihood for any program. The recruiting process has become a major part not only for coaches but also for the media, institution’s fans and supporters. It is not uncommon for fans to track the status of prospective student-athletes from media outlets and celebrate a verbal “non-binding” commitment. We even have a top 25 recruiting poll, which rates the institution’s incoming prospective student-athlete class.
As we approach the National Letter of Intent signing period on November 8-15 for all sports except football and soccer, this is a good time to educate our supporters on the NCAA recruiting publicity rules. NCAA rules are very clear and attempt to minimize the amount of publicity and pressure that are placed on prospects during the recruiting process.
