Effective January 1st, 2013, men’s basketball players can start taking official visits to Division I programs. This new NCAA recruiting rule means, if you’re a junior not registered with the NCAA Eligibility Center and haven’t been talking to coaches, you are way behind in the recruiting process!
To be eligible for an official visit:
- You must be registered with the NCAA Eligibility Center
- The college must have a copy of your high school transcript (Division I only)
- The college needs your NCAA Eligibility Center number on file
- The college needs a copy of your ACT and/or SAT scores
Recruiting Tip: During the first weeks of December, coaches will have more time to communicate with recruits, unless they are a winter sport and are in season. Expect communications to slow down as we get closer to the December holiday season through Martin Luther King Day in January, which is typically when college classes resume.
