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