The NCAA extends recruiting dead period yet again
The NCAA’s Division 1 Council Coordination Committee announced Wednesday evening that the recruiting dead period has been extended through July 31.
The dead period started on March 13, when the NCAA announced the start following the COVID-19 outbreak. In-face and on-campus recruiting visits haven’t happened during this time; however, that hasn’t stopped commitments from pouring in during the dead period.
Now, with the latest announcement, recruiting visits can’t start until August 1 at a minimum. Right now, several options are on the table for the 2020 college football season; however, most schools are set to return players on June 8.
