Recruiting terminology, from a coaching perspective



WEDNESDAY CARDINAL COUPLE

In today's edition of CARDINAL COUPLE, staff columnist Jenny O'Bryan fills us in on terminology and the schedules involved in women's basketball recruiting. The season is getting closer and the anticipation is building!




With summer ball having closed the door the final time for the class of 2014, I wanted to provide readers with some terminology regarding the recruiting process. 

As we often remind you, the NCAA is full of rules and regulations coaches and student athletes must follow to remain in compliance.   Below is a list of terms and permissible activity of coaches as they are out on the recruiting trail. 

Recruiting Calendar Period Definitions:
Contact Period – Coaches can have in-person, face-to-face interaction with prospects and/or family members at any location and can evaluate prospect’s academic and athletic qualifications by visiting their school to speak with teachers and coaches, to review film, and can observe practice and competition.
Evaluation Period – Coaches can evaluate prospect’s academic and athletic qualifications by visiting their school to speak with teachers and coaches, to review film, and can observe practice and competition, but no in-person, face-to-face interaction with prospect’s and/or their family members away from campus is permitted.
Quiet Period – Coaches can have in-person, face-to-face interaction with prospects and/or their family members only on their campus. No off-campus evaluation or contact is permitted.
Dead Period – Coaches cannot have in-person, face-to-face interaction with prospects and/or their family members at any location. Contact is prohibited even if the prospect and/or family members arrive unexpectedly on campus.



Women’s Basketball - Division I (total limit of 3 calls during July with not more than one call in any one week)
July 1-5 – Quiet Period: One call per week to JUCOS, 2013, and 2014 HS grads
July 6-12 – Evaluation Period: One call per week to JUCOS, 2013, and 2014 HS grads July 13-22 – Dead Period: One call per week to JUCOS, 2013, and 2014 HS grads July 23-29 – Evaluation Period: One call per week to JUCOS, 2013, and 2014 HS grads July 30-31 – Dead Period: One call per week to JUCOS, 2013, and 2014 HS grads
 
 (This information was gathered from www.informedathlete.com, 6/13)


As the July evaluation period closes, coaches are likely sifting through tons of data they have collected and makings lists for future classes, but more specifically, honing in on the recruits who will fill their roster needs in the upcoming year. 

Fans can look for information to start flowing a bit more freely from both recruits and scouting services as recruits being to trim their lists and make visits to campus.  Next week I will review some of the terminology and periods that are pertinent from the athlete’s perspective.
