NCAA rules for communication between coaches and kids

The NCAA rules regarding contacting coaches are very, very stringent, as you can imagine. Especially with your top recruits in the top producing sports. Coaches are devising all types of ways with Twitter and Facebook, and so on, to get in touch with student athletes and, sort of, bend the rules. Really, beginning Junior year, they can return emails, but they can't initiate emails. They can send questionnaires, but they can return emails if it is initiated on the part of the athlete. As far as phone calls are concerned, coaches are not allowed to call students until they are a Senior in high school. September 1, beginning when the student is a Senior, is when the coaches are permitted to call student athletes.
