Early scholarship offers are still OK by NCAA rules

January 14, 2011 |  7:16 am

The NCAA Division I Legislative Council defeated a proposal that would have prohibited coaches from making verbal offers to recruits before July 1 of their junior year.

It lost because there would be difficulty in monitoring and enforcement.

That means coaches can continue to offer incoming high school freshmen scholarships if they want.
