How one 'ridiculous' tactic took over college football recruiting

Recommended Posts

It seems insane that the NCAA still doesn't regulate this.

These days, the trend of offering college scholarships to prospects early in high school and still in junior high is trending toward normal.

My daughter is about to be a sophomore in high school and college coaches can't talk to her until September 1 of their junior year.  The only exception is to invite kids to summer camps or gather information.  It seems this would be an easy rule to add for football. 

Edit:  I failed to mention my daughter plays basketball.

Then I suppose basketball has different rules?  Every NCAA presentation I've seen says they can't do that.

Not saying the rule isn't there, but the coaches have ways around that rule.  Talk to travel coach, HS coach, parents etc and tell them you're offering.  Btw these are more or less educated guesses by me.  I'll have to do more digging but I'd imagine that is how it happens.
