NCAA Considering Proposals to Change Recruiting
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - An NCAA committee is recommending changes that would affect recruiting in all college sports.
One proposal would allow coaches in all sports to begin contacting potential high school recruits after July 1 of their sophomore year. There would still be no-contact periods, but a second proposal would remove limitations on how or how often coaches contact recruits when they're allowed to.
It's part of a larger package that is expected to be voted on Jan. 19 at the NCAA convention near Dallas. If approved, the new rules could take effect Aug. 1.
Two other proposals would allow potential recruits and college athletes to accept up to $300 beyond normal expenses to participate in non-scholastic events.
