Recruiting Essentials - NCAA Violations

Recruiting communications, official visits, unofficial visits, etc., is prohibited by the NCAA legislation until September 1st of the player’s Junior year.  This rule is enforced by all D1 programs.Violating this policy may lead to players losing scholarships or eligibility, and programs may face regular/post season suspension, reduction of scholarships, etc.  Major infractions usually stem from illegal incentives, such as high school coaches/players receiving money from boosters or D1 programs.Programs may face penalties if they are aware of any corruption and do not take positive action.  These types of allegations may lead players facing probation, tarnishing of school reputations, etc. Secondary infractions are used for minimal advantage in the recruiting process, and it is not surprising to see intuitions report themselves so they can avoid future/more severe penalties.   Considering that the NCAA legislation for recruiting is constantly changing, it is nearly impossible to understand each rule and the complexities involved with them.Therefore, it almost inevitable for programs to break some NCAA infraction(s) if they are trying to gain advantage over competitors.  These are called common infractions, which are usually made by head coaches of universities.  As an example, coaches sometimes meet with players on unofficial visits.  Although they can contact players in other ways, they are prohibited from physically meeting players until an official visit.No matter the severity of the violation, there will always be an expected penalty.
