NCAA Suspends Rule Allowing Texts, Unlimited Communication
The NCAA Division I Board of Directors decided Thursday to suspend a new recruiting rule that would have allowed football coaches to send text messages to and have unlimited contact with prospective student-athletes.
The board passed the rule in January but reconsidered it after receiving over 75 requests to have it overridden.
It also suspended or tabled three other recruiting-related rules from earlier this year:
Eliminating rules defining recruiting roles
Permitting earlier contact with recruits
Eliminating restrictions on printed recruiting materials
