NCAA Division I Basketball scholarships rule change as of June 15, 2012.

New rule June 15, 2012 That’s when a new NCAA rule took effect, eliminating limits on the number of phone calls and text messages between Division I men’s basketball coaches and recruits who have finished their sophomore year of high school, a deregulation that also extends to private messages on social media (no wall posts or public messages allowed for social media however). Official visits will be allowed during the junior year on or after January 1st.

Football has different rules that allow for unlimited calls only during a contact period during a recruit’s senior season. Under the previous system, coaches could call a recruit just once a month from June 15 after his sophomore year to July 31 after his junior year – although prospects could call coaches whenever they wanted. Coaches could also make two phone calls a week to a recruit starting Aug. 1 after his junior year. Text messages were prohibited.
