So a dad or youth coach can not come along as a package deal.

"And when you're talking about managing the combination of recruiting and coaching your guys and mentoring your guys, and making sure they're doing the right thing in school and off the field, then more hands on deck that are full-time people are good".

The new NCAA legislation would go into effect on August 1 if ratified.

"I think that when you're in eighth grade, ninth grade, how many individuals, how many student athletes, young people, know what they want to take in school? This affirms that the new Division I governance structure can effectively and timely address important issues". The rule is subject to approval by the Collegiate Commissioners Association, administrators of the Letter of Intent program, but that is expected to occur.

And if a prospect is at a "camp or clinic" nearby, they no longer can take an official visit. The changes would take place effective immediately, retroactive to January 18. It would be a 72-hour period that will coincide with the mid-year junior college transfer signing period.

In addition, the NCAA has approved of the addition of a 10th assistant coach to FBS teams, starting in 2018, and eliminated two-a-day practices, effective immediately.

"There's been nothing that's come as close to moving the needle as this", Berry said. The entire package of rule changes is friendly for students, their families and their coaches. But under the new rule, if a player does not qualify, the team only can have 24 players for that recruiting class. As reported by, that amendment was proposed by the Mid-American Conference.

Signing "early" is the same as signing on National Signing Day. And it's not just the uncertainty surrounding new coaching hires, but the assistants those new head coaches are bringing in, too. FCS members considered other amendments that would apply only to FCS football, and adopted one that allows the group to conduct camps and clinics in June and July.

The NCAA Division I Council voted to pass Proposal 2016-26, which will drastically change the culture of lacrosse recruiting after this season.

No more two-a-days.

. The IAWP rules are created to prevent schools from hiring anyone associated with a prospect for noncoaching positions. - Allowing attendance at nonscholastic events during two weekends per year.

Warm weather visits to Pullman certainly wouldn't hurt and summer visits would also check the "spend more one-on-one time with the prospect" box Leach has reiterated when discussing the reason for pushing official visits to after the regular season.

Coaches will now be able to recruit earlier in the year, during camps and clinics (as mentioned in the NCAA's tweet at the top of this piece).
