NCAA Reportedly Changes Summer Basketball Recruiting Calendar

After hearing the findings from the Commission on College Basketball, the NCAA is reportedly moving to change to the summer basketball recruiting schedule in 2019.

The report from Matt Norlander of CBS Sports goes into great detail about the nuances in play.  The ultimate goal is to slowly step back from “non-scholastic events,” a.k.a. AAU tournaments sponsored by shoe companies, like the Nike’s Peach Jam.

If this legislation is passed, coaches will be limited from three non-scholastic events to only one in the month of the July.  They will have five days to attend the Nike, adidas and Under Armour Championships.

Coaches will receive a second weekend to scout players in a live recruiting period, but this will take place at a sanctioned camp, coordinated by the NCAA, USA Basketball, the NBA and the NBA Players Association.  Adding a collaborative camp to the equation along with NBA officials is an idea John Calipari has championed.

To make up for the lost weekend of live recruiting in July, the proposal would give coaches an extra weekend in April to complete in-home recruiting visits with prospects.  Under the current rules, coaches could not visit recruits until after they completed there junior year.  Coaches would also get two three-day periods at the end of June to see recruits in non-scholastic events.

This new recruiting calendar is not finalized, but Norlander reports the motion is set to pass on August 8.  For more details, read the entire CBS Sports report.

    Can someone please explain to me 1- why doesn’t this site have a “contact” button for when you have trouble with the site and 2- why is it for the past few months, no matter how and where I access this site from, my 4 pc’s at home, at work or on my phone or tablet anywhere, being on this site longer than 3 minutes and everything locks up? You can’t do anything until you turn off the power? Why is this? At first I thought it was on my end, took all 4 laptops and had them serviced and as soon as I logged back onto this site it was doing the same thing so its not on my end. Even the Microsoft tech guy who opened this site in his shop had the same problem. Any help in this would greatly appreciate

    I’ve had similar issues on computers, when I open the site via google chrome search, the issues disappear. May be worth trying?
