College Football Recruiting Guidelines! There are a number of important guidelines to follow during the NCAA football recruiting process. Failure to adhere to these rules may result in sanctions against the college football coach, the educational institution, and the student-athlete. A contact is defined as a face-to-face interaction between the student-athlete and their parents or guardians. The head football coach is permitted to make a physical contact with the student-athlete or parents over the duration of one calendar day. This interaction may occur at the student-athlete high school or away from the campus. The head coach may invite an assistant to help with the process, provided that the assistant also adheres to the NCAA rules. If the student-athlete is competing, the college football coach staff is allowed to telephone or send electronic or written correspondence to the student-athlete only if they have consented to the outreach and it takes place during the admissible times. Any other contact outside of written and telephone communication is not permitted during an event in which the student-athlete is a competitor. This rule even applies if the student-athlete is on an official or unofficial visit. In-person contact is prohibited in the football recruiting process during: • Competition or before the contest while at the event site. • The moment the student-athlete is officially participating in any activities related to the athletics event through the completion of the competition. This includes team meetings, press conferences, and meals. • The entirety of the athletics event, including competitions that stretch over more than one day. This contact is not allowed until the student-athlete is released from the high school coach or administrator.
