The NCAA Division I Council approved recruiting changes that will eliminate recruiting communication between college coaches and players until 1 August of Year 11.
The new rules make 1 August the first day when players and college coaches can communicate. The 1 August date will also be the first day third-parties can act as intermediaries between college coaches and players/families.
What does this mean for Australian players?
