Clemson Compliance Corner - Football NLI Early Signing Period Reminders - December 16-18, 2020

As an IPTAY member, you are considered a representative of an institution’s athletics interests (i.e., booster) for Clemson University. Given your status as a booster, it is important to remember you have additional NCAA parameters concerning prospective-student-athletes. In general, the NCAA considers prospects to be 9th – 12th graders or any other unofficial visitors, prep school students, and junior college student-athletes.

DI Football’s National Letter of Intent Early Signing Period is Wednesday, December 16 to Friday, December 18, 2020. Accordingly, please remember the following information:

  • It is not permissible for a booster to contact a prospect or his/her parents (or legal guardians) for the purpose of soliciting recruitment to Clemson. Contact includes:
    • Written Correspondence
    • In-Person Contact
    • Phone Calls
    • Social Media
  • Boosters may not contact a prospect’s high school/club coach, principal, or counselor in an attempt to contact or evaluate the prospect.
  • Boosters may not provide tickets to an athletics event to a prospect or a prospect’s family or friends.
  • Boosters may not provide free tailgate food and drink to prospects, their family or friends, as well as current student-athletes and their family or friends.
  • Even after a prospect signs an NLI, these rules continue to apply.
