NCAA could make changes to basketball recruiting
The NCAA’s Leadership Council wants to deregulate electronic
communications as part of an overall overhaul of Division I men’s
The committee says, in a release posted on the NCAA’s web site,
it has reached a consensus on several parts of the package.
Among possible changes are: Allowing juniors to begin making
official visits after the NCAA championship game is played;
deregulating the types of communication allowed between coaches and
recruits; allowing unlimited communication after Aug. 1 for
soon-to-be juniors and allowing two weekend evaluations during
non-school related events in April. Those evaluation periods would
have some restrictions.
The committee has not yet signed off on any summer recruiting
It hopes to present a final proposal to the Board of Directors
