Why so many recruiting rules? (58 pages)
Bylaw 2.11 The Principle Governing Recruiting:
o Recruiting rules are designed to promote equity among member
institutions in the recruitment of prospects
o To shield prospects from undue pressures that may interfere with
scholastic or athletics interests
Many are sports-specific - increases number of bylaws
Core values
Prospects should have the opportunity to get information allowing them to
make informed decisions on a college choice
Institutions shall recruit prospects who can graduate
Institutional recruiting programs shall be fiscally responsible
Regardless of institutional size or wealth, institutions should have fair
opportunities to recruit prospects
o Should you be able to do better recruiting with a larger budget?
Keep up with recruiting trends
Definitions
Recruiting
o Any solicitation of a prospect (or anyone responsible for
teaching/coaching the prospect), by an institutional staff member, or a
booster, for the purpose of securing the prospect's enrollment and
participation in the institution's athletics program
Prospective student-athlete (PSA)
o A student who has started classes for the ninth grade
o A student who has not yet started classes for the ninth grade, but to
whom the institution provides any benefits that it does not provide to
prospective students generally
o Men's basketball exception: a prospect is any individual that has started
the 7th grade (tryout and camp legislation only)
Boosters (representative of athletics interests)
o Member of a booster club
o Former student-athlete or coach
o Made a financial contribution to athletics department or booster club
