New Division I Interpretation: Telephone Calls to Two-Year College Prospective Student-Athletes

On August 24, 2012, the academic  and membership affairs staff issued an interpretation concerning telephone calls to two-year college prospective student-athletes. Specifically, the staff confirmed that “a prospective student-athlete who was not a qualifier and who is enrolled in his or her first year at a two-year college may be contacted by telephone for recruiting purposes, subject to the applicable telephone calls legislation.”

This interpretation referenced  NCAA Division I Bylaws (two-year college prospective student-athletes), (general restrictions — staff members and governing board), (time period for telephone calls — general rule) and (not a qualifier); and a 11/15/1991 staff interpretation, Item No.a].

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