Clemson Compliance Corner - Boosters Assisting with Recruits

Please remember, as an IPTAY member, you are considered a representative of an institution’s athletics interests (i.e., booster) for Clemson University. As such, the NCAA has strict guidelines concerning boosters and their interaction with prospective student-athletes (i.e., generally 9th – 12th graders or any other unofficial visitors, prep school students, and junior college student-athletes).

Boosters are strictly prohibited from engaging in any type of recruiting activity with potential prospects and their family/friends. Additionally, boosters may not perform any impermissible recruiting activities, which could include the following:

– calling/interacting with recruits
– providing gifts or any material benefits to recruits
– providing transportation or access to free or reduced-cost services to recruits

However, a booster may do the following:

– attend high school or 2-year college games in which recruits are participating as long as boosters do not engage in any type of conversation or communication with the recruit
