NCAA has reportedly ordered a stop to all recruiting



Crootin’ season is over.

According to Jon Rothstein, Nicole Auerbach and a host of other reporters, the NCAA has suspended recruiting for all sports, both on and off campus, until at least April 15.

Typically this time of the year is used to build momentum on the trail. Now basketball coaches will be unable to evaluate prospects on recruiting circuits and football coaches will not get to watch high schoolers participate in spring practice or host recruits while the Cats compete in spring ball. Just yesterday there were prospective recruits on Kentucky’s campus to watch spring practice.

If the hiatus is removed in time for the summer, it will be the busiest football recruiting month in the history of Kentucky football. The early signing period has already forced players to move up official visits to June. Now without at least half of the month of April to host unofficial visitors, Vince Marrow is going to be putting in overtime to earn that contract extension.

    I wonder what will happen with the possible reclassifiers as lots of school systems go to home/online classes. On the one hand, surely it’d be harder to get everything done that you need to with a lot of stuff shut down, but on the other hand, all of their team sports stuff will be off, so they’ll have more free time.
