Recruiting defined

27 04 2009

As part of our ongoing efforts to educate you on the recruiting process, we’re going to discuss the four different recruiting periods as determined by the NCAA. The timing and duration of these periods can differ greatly, depending upon the sport and the level of play. These periods govern the type of activities that are permissible between prospective student-athletes and coaches. Here’s an overview straight from the NCAA Manual. We’ll break each one down in greater detail as we go.

  1. Contact Period
  2. Evaluation Period
  3. Quiet Period
  4. Dead Period

We’ll discuss what exactly the “contact period” is tomorrow. We’ll give you the NCAA definition, then break it down in real terms everyone can understand. As we go along, you’ll see why this is important for you to know as you move forward in the recruiting process.

Until next time…
