Recruiting Roundup: April contact period
With the April contact period coming to a close at day’s end, here’s an aggregated list of uncommitted recruits that have reportedly been watched by the IU staff.
It’s certainly not a complete list, but it’s a compilation of what’s been reported.
Here’s the official timetable for the contact period per the NCAA recruiting calendar:
Contact Period April 7 (noon) – 20, 2011, [except for (1) below]:
(1) Dead Period April 11-14, 2011
And here’s how the NCAA defines a contact period:
Contact period is the time when a college coach may have in-person contact with a prospective student-athlete and the prospect’s parents on or off the college’s campus. The coach may also watch the prospective student-athlete play or visit his or her high school. The prospect and the parents may visit a college campus, and the coach may write and telephone during this period.
