On November 15, 2011, the NCAA academics and membership affairs staff posted on the membership side of the Legislative Services Database (LSDBi) information concerning the new Division I Men’s Basketball Recruiting Model. The information, which is organized in chart form, provides the current/previous rule and the new rule on the following areas/issues:
- Recruiting calendar evaluations
- Communications with prospective student-athletes
- Off-campus contacts
- Official paid visits.
The Michael L. Buckner Law Firm recommends athletics compliance staff: (1) review the recruiting model; and (2) incorporate the new rules in the athletics compliance manual and rules-education sessions.
