Effective June 1, all NCAA Division I sports programs will return to their regular recruiting calendars. This means that each sport will be able to conduct off-campus recruiting during permissible Evaluation or Contact Periods.

As you can imagine, this has many Division I coaches excited to be “on the road again” (to quote Willie Nelson!!).

They also will be able to offer official and unofficial visits during those periods as well as during Quiet Periods (when they are not permitted to recruit off-campus).

However, some coaches will not be able to hit the road as soon as others.

For example, in the sports of Division I baseball and softball, the first week of June is ….wait for it …..a Dead Period!!!

NCAA Division I Dead Period extended again! The recruiting “Dead Period” prohibiting in-person recruiting in all Division I sports has now been extended through May 31. This means that no official or unofficial visits to Division I campuses are permissible until after May 31 at the earliest. Division I coaches will be limited to phone, video, or electronic communication with recruits.

Recruiting Tip for All College Levels:

When talking to student-athletes or their parents we often hear “The assistant coach that recruited me is no longer with the school.”

Because we hear those comments so often, we suggest that athletes who are being recruited spend as much time as possible with the head coach when visiting a campus. After all, the head coach is the one who decides who will be in the starting lineup.
