Statement on recruiting dead period violations

“NCAA enforcement staff are aware of numerous potential recruiting violations during the extended recruiting dead period, which was lengthened due to health and safety concerns related to COVID-19. These span multiple sports and include campus visits by prospects that may be impermissible. Because these are time sensitive and unique to the current environment, some of the reported violations have been resolved already. Others are in process. As with any potential violation, we look at the facts and circumstances of each visit to determine appropriate penalties or other next steps. Although outcomes are not always publicized, enforcement understands the significance of these behaviors, and we’re addressing them actively to ensure fairness for schools that are playing by the rules.”

– Jon Duncan, NCAA vice president of enforcement
