During this time of uncertainty and change with the COVID-19 outbreak, we want to provide as much information as we can to coaches, athletes, and families. As more information becomes available, we will provide updates as quickly as possible.

Over the past few months, we’ve spoken with many coaches at the 4-year, junior college, club/travel, and high school levels.

As the intercollegiate governing bodies such as the NCAA, NAIA, and various junior college athletic associations update their rules, college coaches have told us that recruiting will continue, mostly online via phone calls, texts, emails, social media, etc.


  • NCAA has instituted updated recruiting guidelines and declared a dead period, which prohibits in-person recruiting for DI sports through August 31st.  (Updated 7/13)
  • NCAA has also instituted updated recruiting guidelines and declared a quiet period for DII sports through July 31st.  (Updated 7/13)
  • The NCAA DI Council has allowed schools the option to provide spring sports student-athletes an additional season of competition and an extension of their period of eligibility. 
  • All collegiate spring sports were cancelled or suspended indefinitely.
  • Many colleges are beginning to announce their plans for Fall 2020. For more information about a specific college, sport, or governing body, visit their official website for the most up-to-date information.


While some recruiting rules are changing for the time being to limit in-person interactions and keep people safe, recruiting will still continue online/digitally. As some of the recruiting calendars may change, we recommend staying up-to-date with the latest information from the governing bodies.

To continue their recruiting efforts, college coaches are focusing on communicating with athletes, coaches, and families over the phone and online, and watching as much highlight film as they can find.


Keeping your online profile up-to-date is very important. Be sure that your profile is updated with the following information:

Lastly, college coaches have told us they will be trying to get in touch with athletes, coaches, and family members as much as possible at this time. Respond to college coaches as quickly as you can. Also, communicate with your coaches frequently so everyone is on the same page.

The NCAA DI Council has voted to allow schools the option to provide their student-athletes who participate in spring sports an additional season of competition and an extension of their period of eligibility.

Schools also have the flexibility to allow their teams to carry more student-athletes on scholarship to account for incoming recruits as well as student-athletes who were in their last year of eligibility and decide to stay.

This new rule only applies to spring sports. Winter sports were not included in this decision.

It remains to be seen how it will affect teams, rosters, scholarships, and recruiting with regards to junior college transfers and high school recruits.


As information becomes available, we will do our best to update coaches, athletes, and families. Here are some helpful links to the websites for the Center for Disease Control, the intercollegiate governing bodies, various social media accounts, blog posts, etc:
