New NCAA Division I Rules That Became Effective July 1st

Effective July 1, recruits can now take an unlimited number of official visits to Division I institutions, as long as they don’t take more than one official visit per university.

  • There are exceptions possible when there has been a head coaching change at a university since the recruit’s original official visit, and also if a recruit later on in their college career is transferring to another university.

Also, high school athletes who are being told by an NCAA Division I coach that they can join the team as a “student manager” because there are no roster spots available, should be aware of a new rule that will impact them.

  • At the NCAA Division I level, once an athlete takes the role of a “student manager” they are forfeiting any remaining eligibility to compete for that university in that sport. That rule has applied in Division I baseball since 2014 but is now applicable to ALL Division I sports.
