New Division II Interpretation: Recruiting Functions Used in the Recruitment of Two-Year and Four-Year College Transfers

On May 24, 2012, the NCAA Division II Legislation Committee issued an interpretation concerning recruiting functions used in the recruitment of transfer student-athletes. Specifically, the staff confirmed that “that there is no limit on the number or frequency of in-person off-campus contacts, telephone calls, printed recruiting materials, electronic media and electronic transmissions with two-year college transfers or four-year college transfers for whom the institution has received permission to contact.”

This interpretation referenced  NCAA Division II Bylaws 13.1.6 (contacts), 13.1.3.1 (time period for telephone calls — general rule) and 13.4.1 (printed recruiting materials), 13.4.2 (electronic media) and 13.4.5 (electronic transmissions); and Proposal Nos. 2012-11, 2012-12 and 2012-13.

In light of this interpretation, the Michael L. Buckner Law Firm recommends institutions’ athletics compliance include the interpretation in the next scheduled rules-education session for the athletics staff and coaches.
