The rules for the NCAA are changing. Today, the NCAA Division I Board of Directors approved changes that allow conferences to add $2000 to scholarship offers, giving schools "the option of awarding scholarships on a multiple-year basis", making poorly performing academic ineligible for post-season play, and changing basketball recruiting rules.
On the final note, college basketball coaches...
- Will now be able to contact a recruit via unlimited phone calls and text messages beginning July 15th between a player's Sophmore & Junior year.
- Recruits can now take "Official" Visits beginning January 1during their Junior year.
- Evaluation Periods are altered now allowing 2 weeks in April and reducing July's Evaluation period from 20 days to 12.
