Re: NCAA "Early Commitments" Rule Change

There are only two real changes to the current state. 1. The athletic department can't give the kid a tour but the kid can go on campus and they can meet with them. From there they send the family over to admissions and they give the tour. 2. Move official visits up a year. Senior year visits are a joke because LOI's are all signed by November of 12th grade anyway so this might be helpful for schools.

In all, nothing much changes. There will be no explosion of advisors. That happened years ago and there is already not enough good hockey players to meet the demand of these guys. They have already been providing the link to college coaches for 8-10th grades and so that doesn't change.

Now if we can just get rid of the 21 year old college freshmen who is 'so proud to bring his hockey talent to XYZ University.'

Exactly, nothing really changes, players who are younger than a "Junior" will continue to have "un-official" visits, these are generally your blue-chip prospects anyhow. What may change though is the decline announcement of verbal-commits on social media for 14-15 year olds ??

Re: NCAA "Early Commitments" Rule Change

If you go to campus on an unoffical visit you can't meet with the coaches. It doesn't mean you cant talk with them over the phone. They can't call you but you can call them and if they answer, they can talk to you.

All this really does is free up the coaches from having to show kids/families around campus on unofficial visits. They can still talk, still offer and kids will still post comittments on twitter.

i think the (college) coaches fully support this. they are more than likely exhausted by \'middle school parents\' asking them to check out their child.
Geez. The article clearly says that won\'t stop.

\"Although the new rules prevent college coaches from discussing recruiting until a prospect\'s junior year, younger student-athletes can and surely still will contact college coaches early and often. Similarly, and perhaps just as significantly, college coaches may still discuss a prospect - including the recruiting process - with the student-athlete\'s high school or club coach.\"


Skimmed it, did you?
Haha, oops!
fine i will clarify:

"college coaches will NOT [emphasis added] be able to discuss recruiting with a prospect, IN PERSON [emphasis added], until Sept. 1 of a potential recruit's junior year."

you can do a dozen of calls in a day, but try that in person.

I'm a youth hockey coach and I do a dozen calls plus text plus emails daily, related to hockey!
