Coronavirus recruiting Dead Period extended

Rick at Informed Athlete ·
It was just announced that NCAA D1 and D2 have extended the recruiting Dead Period through May 31 (that's for all sports). While it wasn't specifically stated, don't be surprised if they also announce that no new NLI's or scholarship agreements can be offered during this extended period.

NLI Transfer rule for juco

Khasch ·
My son signed a NLI with a juco college for baseball last year. He will complete his first season and academic year next month. If he wants to transfer to another juco college for his sophomore year as a walk-on, can he do that? And if he can, when can he communicate with other juco coaches?

D1 probable redshirt...should he stay or should he go?

Scenario: Player is recruited by mid major D1. Assistant coach who recruited player is released from the team this spring. The team decides (after giving the player another look with a different assistant coach) that this player is not a good fit for their program after all. Coach communicates with the player this week that it is likely he will be redshirted based on his current evaluation. NLI is signed and coach indicates that they will honor the scholarship for the year it covers. After...

Saw where one kid showed a picture on twitter of him and the P5 coach of a school that offered this week. It went down very quickly. I wonder if he was on campus or it was a previously taken picture. I'm guessing maybe he was on campus since it did not stay up long or it was older but had the appearance of evil. I listened to an interview where they said there was complaints made in the 100's of illegal recruiting during this time. The NCAA guy said they were taking these very seriously and...

So what you are saying is that possibly the offer sheet can't be completed and emailed or texted and no NLI's can be signed...verbal offers are still gonna be made and players are still gonna commit..to the degree that the payer can trust the coach an agreement can still be reached...not sure what impact this has except paperwork...or would this be a possible strategy to limit transfers..the later the next available signing window is pushed the more likely potential transfers are to stay put..

I agree with what you've stated. Offers will still be made, and players will still commit. But may be doing so without visiting the campus if they haven't visited already. Then as you stated, can the player and family trust the coach? - especially when athletic departments across the country are crunching their budget numbers and an AD might tell the coach "you can't offer any more scholarships than those who have already signed."

One of my (non-athletic) HS students raised that very point. May 1 is coming when schools want their deposit. This student got accepted into 2 of his top schools. He was hoping that he'd have a chance to pay them one more visit before making his decision, during the upcoming April break. Unfortunately for him and MANY others- that won't happen.

Many schools are offering extensive virtual tours. In some cases you do have to register for the “tour”. I have a high school Sr (non-athlete). My guess is the athletic facilities will not be part of the virtual tour. Maybe athletic departments should put something together for prospective student athletes?

I don't know how strongly this player feels connected to the school and/or otherwise desires to go there. So, we are unable to factor that important aspect in. Aside from that, I have to agree with Ryno... the new coach saw him and told him no fit going forward. There is almost always multiple factors, multiple pieces moving with this type of thing. It's not just the player. It is other players they have in mind for the spot, maybe other players who they gave $ to. So the player has a...

Feel badly for the student athlete here. That is tough on a young person who thought he had a good home and opporutnity. I would favor Option 1. Getting the second coach to reconsider will be difficult - he felt strongly enough to come out and let the SA know, and it is human nature to rationalize and stick with his initial decision versus later changing course. Not impossible but seems improbable. Also, as difficult as it will be switching gears now and finding another opportunity in the...

I don't know how strongly this player feels connected to the school and/or otherwise desires to go there. So, we are unable to factor that important aspect in. The player is excited for the opportunity but I wouldn't say he feels any real connection to the school since he has yet to attend. It is out of state...has a rich history etc. Not going to this school will not break the players heart as much as not playing D1 baseball.

To the OP: this is where it can be extremely helpful to have a few very trusted advisors that can steer a kid in the correct direction. Often this can be a Travel Ball coach or a hitting/pitching instructor or a trusted friend who is a scout or college coach. Someone who can tell you guys the truth, even if the truth is tough to hear. Either the kid is not a good fit at this particular D1, or just not D1 material at all. I like the JUCO route, because it can open up the recruiting again to...

Another Option Hopefully your son has developed good relationships with other schools during the process. If he did, I would start by putting a list together of potential other options and contacts from the process. Draft is coming so some schools may have potential holes to fill...Maybe they would still be interested....Tricky though....They cant talk to you while under the NLI...So first step....You may want to get out of NLI with the school ASAP. Go to your travel ball and high school...

Thanks...I will be consulting with our inner circle over the next few days. I have learned so much on these boards that I wanted to get your input as well. He may not be D1 material...only time will tell. We were told by many evaluators that he was a mid major D1 prospect. Talented kid with a good bit of upside. It has helped me to read on this board how often this happens. I was disappointed to say the least when I received the call from the head coach. Your comments are very helpful. Thanks!

How long ago did he commit? Did he have other D1 offers or at least serious interest? If yes, then I'd assume he can find a spot at a D1....considering he's now probably at least a year older (and likely stronger) than when he was initially recruited. Whether it's right away or after a year at a smaller school is up to him. I'm not an expert, but I think he can be released from his NLI due to the coaching change, but I'm not sure if it qualifies that it was an assistant, not the HC. I can...

He committed at the end of last summer...signed his NLI during the early signing period. Just finished his senior year of high school baseball and is playing in a collegiate summer league in Florida starting in June. He had other D1 interest but not offers. The head coach did not change...the assistant coach that recruited him changed. The head coach has indicated that he will release him from his NLI.

I think the answer is "yes" since he never actually participated under the intitial NLI...however, the chances of landing at another D1 this late in the game is probably slim. If we decide to look elsewhere (which seems to be most peoples opinions on this thread) we will start called the other D1 schools that showed interest to see if they have a need that my son can fill. If not we will work D3 and JUCO...

Good point and I will share with him that this is not personal even though it most likely will feel that way. Over the years we have always sought outside opinion in order to help keep expectation real and not inflated by hopes and and dreams. He has been evaluated by people who know baseball from Virginia to Florida and I have followed their guidance regarding where he fits.

What position does he play? If he's an infielder and can field a ground ball and get a batter out, my son would probably try to pull some strings to get him into his school Nothing a pitcher hates more than getting an easy ground ball that turns into an E, costing him pitches or worse

Did he do a Perfect Game Showcase? You certainly don't need to reveal his his grade but if he received a 9 or a 10 he is most likely D1 material. An 8 or 8.5 doesn't mean he's not D1, just that he might not be a slam dunk D1 candidate. Some of the best advice repeated here is "go where you are loved" and I would add "go where you can get on the field and contribute". If a kid loves playing Baseball it is not as much fun sitting on the bench for 4 years. Others will correct me if I'm wrong...

Sounds like a ballplayer to me! The Canes folks should be able to help get him situated. That is (in part) what you paid them for.... D1 openings do come up in June after the draft when a player or three expected on campus signs with an MLB team. A late opening like that, combined with a good JUCO in place as a backup plan, would likely be my approach. Hopefully your son is feeling more than a little angry about all this. A talented player with a chip on his shoulder can be a good thing. If...

The given is he's not wanted at the school he signed. Convincing the coach he belongs is a long shot with consequences (transferring issues) if he fails to do so. I would sit down with the travel coaches for advice. They may be able to make some calls on his behalf. He may have to red shirt for a year due to lack of roster space. Or maybe he plays JuCo for a year with a D1 verbal for the following year. Good luck.

Sorry to hear about your sons situation. I think you are getting excellent suggestions from the HSBBWEB board, and I hope your son gets some options to chose from. This may be a blessing in disguise given the head coach's recent attitude and actions. I've seen events like this put some serious motivation in a young man. Good luck!

This: "Or maybe he plays JuCo for a year with a D1 verbal for the following year." I have seen this right much. The D1 wants him, but just not right now due to roster space.

Right...the mid major he is signed with has indicated possible interest in that regard. Not so much a verbal but a "we will keep him on our board" approach. Not sure that is how it will unfold but that has been indicated if the player progresses properly. Of course any JUCO player that becomes desirable falls in that category.

I guess I'm not feeling quite as willing to roll over as that. The school essentially restricted my son from looking at other schools, pursuing other options for 9 months (longer if you count the verbal commitment), and now they are telling him to break his own contract because they actually can't legally break it. That seems like fraud to me or at least restraint of trade. Student athletes should have some recourse in situations like this, but the school and NCAA has all the power. It's ...

It is happening to some extent a lot of places. But this is the first I have heard of it happening to 7 kids in one recruiting class. Although it doesn’t surprise me. I know it doesn’t seem like it right now but from a baseball perspective things could actually turn out better - especially if your son is a position player. It’s really not a good situation to be the next to last guy on the roster.
