Daily Compliance Item- 11.11.15- 13.10.3- Personalized Videos for NLI Signees

The Ocean State University women’s basketball coaches would like to have personalized videos created for the new NLI signees. Is this permissible?

Yes with conditions. NCAA Staff Interpretation- Personalized Audio/Video Presentations After Prospective Student-Athlete’s Commitment (I)– states that an institution may produce and arrange personalized audio/video presentations to show to or play for, but not provide to, a prospective student-athlete after he or she has signed a National Letter of Intent or the institution’s written offer of admission and/or financial aid or after the institution has received his or her financial deposit in response to its offer of admission.
