The Video Director at Ocean State University (OSU) has been busy putting together video highlights of all the recruits that are going to sign a National Letter of Intent (NLI) with OSU this week. Once the recruits have signed their NLIs, can the Video Director create a personalized version of these video highlights for the coaches to play for them?
Yes. NCAA Staff Interpretation- 2/27/15- 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.
