Clam Ping is a very talented high school lacrosse player. Although he is only a sophomore, Clam has been contacting several Division I coaches to set up campus visits this fall.
Is it permissible for coaches to receive telephone calls from Clam during his sophomore year?
No. with the adoption of NCAA Proposal 2017-1, institutional staff members are not permitted to receive telephone calls from prospects before September 1 at the beginning of his/her junior year in high school. This proposal has an immediate effective date.
NCAA Bylaw 188.8.131.52.2.1 states that in lacrosse, institutional staff members may not receive telephone calls from an individual (or his or her relatives or legal guardians) before September 1 at the beginning of his or her junior year in high school. (Adopted: 4/14/17)
