Moving toward unlimited communication 

June, 14, 2012
On June 15, the recruiting game changes.

From this point on, colleges are allowed to call and text recruits under the new principle of unlimited contact. I look at unlimited contact like blind loyalty -- neither is a good idea.

My take on this situation is simple: the new rule does not benefit the players. In many cases, recruits are about to get inundated with extraneous calls and texts. Let me know the first time a kid commits to a school based on the relationship he formed with a coach from texting. Maybe it’ll happen but I’m among the crowd of naysayers who thinks the kid’s privacy will be invaded and the stress of keeping up with the recruitment takes away from novel concepts such as say, homework or even practice (that’s a topic for another day).
