The NCAA Board of Directors officially suspended two controversial rules changes concerning recruiting Monday, overturning two elements of a deregulation package approved by the same board in January. The changes had allowed football staff members other than the program's coaches to perform recruiting tasks and eliminated restrictions on the types of printed material that can be sent to potential recruits.
A third rules change that would have "eliminated restrictions on modes and numerical limitations of recruiting contacts" -- allowing for unlimited texts, phone calls, and social media messages from coaches to recruits -- was also considered for suspension but will instead go through the normal override process.
Ugh...if I was a recruit, I would block anyone who called, texted or messaged me too much. Can you imagine messages getting buried in the onslaught, so everybody does it?
