NCAA eyes summer hoops in recruiting rules rewrite

Thursday, June 30, 2011

Even as it acts as a gatekeeper for the summer circuit, the NCAA is working to rewrite its men's basketball recruiting rules to try and slim down the season, avoiding potentially unsavory influences of AAU coaches, event operators and other hangers-on who may be looking to ride the coattails of the next superstar. The latest effort comes after conference commissioners asked the NCAA to entirely scrap the July recruiting period. An NCAA panel is instead expected to recommend a reduction in July recruiting, but not its outright elimination. (Seattle Post-Intelligencer)
