Clemson Compliance Corner - Boosters Assisting With Recruits

IPTAY members are considered representatives of an institution’s athletics interests (i.e., booster) for Clemson University. 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 such as 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

– offering an NIL opportunity as a means of trying to persuade a prospect to attend Clemson, which is also prohibited by South Carolina state law


However, a booster may attend high school, prep 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 recruits.
