Foul Line, a rising senior in high school, would like to take an official visit to Ocean State University next month. The only available dates for Foul happen to occur during an evaluation period. Is it permissible for Foul to take an official visit during an evaluation period in July?
No. Bylaw 126.96.36.199.2 states that in women’s basketball, an institution may not provide an expense-paid visit to a prospective student-athlete during the July evaluation periods (see Bylaw 188.8.131.52.2), unless the prospective student-athlete has signed a National Letter of Intent or the institution’s written offer of admission and/or financial aid or the institution has received her financial deposit in response to its offer of admission.
