This week’s edition of “Recruitnik” finds not much change on the board. One main reason for the stalemate is obviously the Holidays, also this is what is known as a recruiting “dead” period. This is a time when there is no contact with recruits by coaches or staff from any Colleges or Universities. The NCAA has pre determined these dates, for reasons only they know. Below is different timelines that recruiters have to navigate through. As you can see, it gets complicated………

August 1-November 27: This is technically a Quiet Period, during which recruits can visit with coaches but only on those coaches’ campuses. But it’s also an Evaluation Period, meaning that recruiters can visit recruits off-campus during 42 “evaluation days” during September, October and November. These evaluation days must be designated in writing by each school’s athletic director. Recruiters may not visit any single recruit more than once during this time.

November 28-January 29: Contact Period. During this time, coaches are allowed to visit recruits off campus. Coaches can make only one visit per week to individual recruits. Also during this window, coaches must be aware of intermittent Quiet Periods and Dead Periods (during which no in-person contact is allowed) set for the following dates:

  • December 12: Quiet Period (for junior college prospects enrolling mid-year only)
  • December 13-16: Dead Period (for junior college prospects enrolling mid-year only; staff may have contact with recruits who have been admitted for mid-year enrollment)
  • December 17-18: Quiet Period (for junior college prospects enrolling mid-year only)
  • December 19: Quiet Period
  • December 20-January 3: Dead Period (staff may have contact with recruits who have been admitted for mid-year enrollment)
  • January 9: Quiet Period
  • January 10-13: Dead Period (staff may have contact with recruits who have been admitted for mid-year enrollment)

January 29: Quiet Period

January 30-February 1: Dead Period. [Note: Feb. 1 is "national signing day," the first day that recruits can sign a National Letter of Intent for their school of choice.]

February 4-April 14: Quiet Period

    OK, so here’s what I always want to see. For each year’s recruiting classes, what are the final rankings 3 and 4 years (in some cases 5, I suppose) later for those teams? I suspect some correlation, but not as much as many might think. However, it still is nice to see your team up there in these rankings.

      That is actually a really great point BB. That is what I was eluding to in my first article. I wouldn’t get to hung up on rankings as much as your team “meeting needs”, & getting quality guys.
