NCAA: Texting, Social Media Now Big Part Of College Recruiting
Division I men’s basketball coaches are now able to send unlimited texts and make unlimited calls to recruits who have wrapped up their sophomore year of high school, reports AtlantaBlackStar.
The NCAA also will also allow coaches to send private messages to prospective players through social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
The NCAA is allowing coaches to text, tweet and talk to their hearts’ content because, as Missouri athletic director Mike Alden put it, the organization “recognized the evolving nature of communication with students".
Back in 2007, the NCAA approved a ban on text messaging.
