NCAA Division 1 - Suspension of all in-person recruiting for D1 sports is extended through April 15, 2021. Coaches are not allowed to meet face-to-face with a recruit off campus or do any in-person scouting. However, strength and conditioning coaches have been allowed to virtually observe workouts if specifically requested by the student-athlete.
The NCAA has also encouraged all colleges to stop all official and unofficial visits. Recruiting will not stop completely; coaches and recruits can still communicate over email, phone, text and social media.
Impact on scholarship offers: College coaches may be more likely to make recruits different types of offers that help them retain roster flexibility, such as a grayshirt or redshirt scholarship offer
NCAA Division 2 and D3, NAIA and NJCAA - level coaches are able to participate in all regular recruiting activities, including attending camps, tournaments and recruiting events. If you are in contact with coaches at these programs, we recommend checking directly with them to ensure face-to-face meetings or in-person scouting are not canceled or postponed.
