Before a prospective student-athlete starts ninth grade, coaches can send that PSA written material and can have face-to-face off-campus contact, according to the NCAA.

Once the student-athlete starts high school, coaches are not allowed to send mail, e-mail or make off-campus contact. However, a student-athlete can take the initiative and make contact with a coach. This can be done via phone or through an unofficial visit.

Some other NCAA recruiting rules:

  • Beginning Sept. 1 of a student-athlete’s junior year, a coach can begin to mail and e-mail the student.
  • Beginning July 1 before a student-athlete’s senior year, coaches may make one phone call per week (Sunday to Saturday). Coaches also can begin to make off-campus contact.
  • A coaching staff is allowed seven “recruiting opportunities.” No more than three can be contacts, with the other four being evaluations. Evaluations count only during the academic year.
  • Players may make five official visits after the start of classes in their senior season. There is no limit to unofficial visits, which can be taken at any age and any time.
  • Official visits can include paid transportation, lodging, meals and reasonable entertainment by the school. Parents can accompany the student-athlete on the official visit but must pay their own transportation expenses, unless they are traveling in the same car to/from the visit. An institution can pay all or part of lodging, meals and entertainment for parents.
  • Unofficial visits are at the expense of the PSA and his/her parents. They can receive three complimentary tickets (football or basketball games, etc.) for the visit and receive transportation with coaches to tour the campus and practice facilities used by that sport.
  • Once an official visit starts, the PSA can be there only 48 hours. A longer stay would require the student-athlete to pay for his/her return transportation. The 48 hours begins when the student-athlete steps onto the campus.
