By rule, a D1 coach can't call a player directly until July 1 following the players junior year. However, if he does call, there is no effect on the player's eligibility--it is only an institutional violation (22.214.171.124.8).
So there is no reason to not return a call. I would, out of courtesy, make sure that the coach knows that he is a 2012.
I agree, reach out and call him back. This happend to my son also. The coach thought he was a senior, when he is actually a junior. Send him an email and let him know you got the call and would like to speak with him.

No. There is no reason for parental involvement at this point. As 3FG stated, there is no risk to the recruit, only the institution. Plus, you're taking away an opportunity for the coach and player to connect, so it's a net negative for the parent to become involved.
Disagree. It will be a great opportunity for your son to make an impression. Why would you want him to miss out on it? It is also a great chance for him to practice speaking with a coach in the event that he did think that your son graduated in 2011.
Originally posted by Eric G: I was thinking a coach cant call a 2012 now. If that is correct, do you address that coach about it or disregard it and still have your son call him back to talk as he is requesting.
Is the coach requesting that your son call him through a third party? The way you ask the question I am not sure... If this is the case, it is OK for you to call a coach. He just can't return your call if the doesn't answer. Coaches that wanted to speak to my son, prior to July 1 during the summer after his junior year, would go through his HS coach and tell me son to call on a date at a certain time. This is a legal way to get around the "no call" rule.
Well, the coach indicated that a local scout he deals with had referred my son to him, and that scout I am aware of but have never spoken to. That is what I thought the coach may have been using to get away with it but the coach specified he is getting info from this scout about '12s and '13's
