Dead period finally coming to an end? NCAA committee reportedly set to recommend opening up recruiting
Good news could soon be coming in recruiting.
That’s because for the first time in over a year, the NCAA could be opening up recruiting in college football.
While the cancelation of the SEC Tournament and eventually the NCAA Tournament made the most headlines at this time last year, all in-person recruiting was also shut down and has yet to open back up since shutting down in March of 2020.
That could soon be coming to an end, however, as Dennis Dodd of CBS Sports is reporting that the “NCAA Football Oversight Committee will recommend this week that the dead period transition to a quiet period on June 1.”
The NCAA is scheduled to hold a meeting this week to discuss the end of the dead period. The dead period currently runs through May 31.
Should the NCAA shift to a quiet period in recruiting, on-campus camps and the hosting of football prospects on campus could begin June 1. The ability to hit the road for recruiting would come at a later date.
