Daily Compliance Item- 1/8/13- 13.02.5.5.2

Bank Shot is a prospective student-athlete that signed a National Letter of Intent (NLI) in November to play basketball at Ocean State University (OSU).  Bank would like to make an unofficial visit to OSU’s campus this weekend and go to a home men’s basketball game.  For purposes of this scenario- it is a dead period this weekend for the sport of basketball.

Can Bank make an unofficial visit to campus and receive a complimentary admission to attend the basketball game?

Yes.  NCAA Bylaw 13.02.5.5.2 states that a prospective student-athlete is permitted to make an unofficial visit during a dead period beginning the calendar day after one of the following events occurs:

(a) The prospective student-athlete signs a National Letter of Intent (NLI) or the institution’s written offer of admission and/or financial aid; or

(b) The institution receives a financial deposit in response to the institution’s offer of admission.
