The NCAA recruiting dead period has been extended through July 31, the Division I Council Coordination Committee announced this week.
The committee will continue to evaluate options while receiving guidance from medical experts.
“The extension maintains consistent recruiting rules for all sports and allows coaches to focus on the student-athletes who may be returning to campus,” Council chair M. Grace Calhoun, athletics director at Pennsylvania, said in a statement. “The committee is committed to reviewing the dead period again in late June or early July.”
For soccer, this means that no camps can take play in July, along with no recruiting visits. Players can still verbally commit, as the window for sophomores to communicate with coaches opens on June 15.
