Recruiting Information You Should Know...

  • You become a "prospective student-athlete" when you start ninth grade classes.
  • You may receive letters, e-mails, and any other form of written correspondence or printed recruiting materials from coaches on or after September 1 at the start of your junior year in high school. However, a coach may provide you with a general questionnaire, camp brochure and educational information published by the NCAA at any time. Telephone calls can be made with student-athletes once during the month of March in the junior year, and then only once per week after July 1 following the completion of your junior year in high school. Unlimited calls to you (or your parents or legal guardians) may be made under the following circumstances:
    • During the five days immediately before your official visit
    • On the day of the coach's off-campus contact with you
  • The baseball office may accept calls from you (or your parents or legal guardians) at any time, regardless of your year in school. However, any member of the coaching staff cannot return calls to prospects who have not completed their junior year in high school. Also, the coaching staff cannot return a call to you if they have already called once during that calendar week. Remember that you can call them at any time, but even if you leave a message asking them to call you back, they may be restricted from returning the call.
