NCAA extends recruiting dead period due to COVID-19

For the second time in as many months, the NCAA has extended its recruiting dead period, pushing it out an additional month to June 30th after it was set to expire at the end of May.

The original dead period was supposed to end on April 15th prior to its six week extension on April 1st. In a statement made Tuesday, the Division I Council Coordination Committee said it will review the dead period dates on May 27th and could still push it back even further at that time.

By definition, a recruiting dead period prohibits any face-to-face interaction between college coaches and prospective student-athletes or their parents. However, the two sides can still talk via phone or computer.
