On the second Wednesday of every month, a member of the Georgia State Compliance staff will give InsideGSUSports a look at what is going on in their department. Over the course of every month, each department will be featured at least once. Coming next Monday: Communications.
Panther Nation, let us see how you fare with this month’s Compliance trivia!
May an institutional coach evaluate a prospective student-athlete for media, recruiting services, or other third parties?
Answer: No, athletics staff members (includes coaches) may not evaluate or rate a prospective student-athlete for news media, scouting services, or recruiting services.
May a coach comment publicly on the athletic skill and abilities of a prospective student-athlete prior to the prospective student-athlete signing a National Letter of Intent (NLI) to attend the institution?
Answer: No, an institution may only confirm its recruitment of the prospective student-athlete. An institution may not comment about the prospective student-athlete’s ability or possible contribution that the prospective student-athlete might make to the institution’s team.
Always remember, please ASK BEFORE YOU ACT!
Thank you for playing an integral role in keeping Georgia State compliant!
