The Head Men’s Basketball Coach at Ocean State University watched High Post, a senior prospect, practice yesterday at his high school. After practice, the coach met with High at High’s house.
How many recruiting opportunities did the coach use?
The coach used 1 recruiting opportunity. NCAA Bylaw 22.214.171.124 states that evaluations that occur during the academic year count against the permissible number of recruiting opportunities, except for evaluations that occur on the same day as a permissible contact. Outside of the academic year, evaluations do not count against the annual number of recruiting opportunities. Contacts that occur with a prospective student-athlete count against the permissible number of total recruiting opportunities regardless of the time period (e.g., academic year or outside the academic year). All contacts and evaluations are subject to recruiting calendar restrictions.
NCAA Bylaw 126.96.36.199 states that in team sports, an institution shall use an evaluation for each prospective student-athlete participating in a practice or contest observed by the institution’s coach, except an evaluation that occurs on the same day as a permissible contact (see Bylaw 188.8.131.52). An institution’s coach who is attending an event in which prospective student-athletes from multiple educational institutions participate in drills (e.g., combine) shall use an evaluation only for each prospective student-athlete participating in the event that the coach observes engaging in the drills. In football, an observation that occurs during a permissible contact period shall count only as a contact per Bylaw 13.02.4.1. (Revised: 6/28/04, 5/14/05, 10/30/12)
