The contact period for football recruiting begins November 27 and ends December 10.
College football recruiters are now out on the road visiting high schools. Between November 27 thru December 10 can be a crazy and exciting time for both the high school coach and the prospects, as well as the college coach.
“Contact Period”A contact occurs any time a college coach says more than hello during a face-to-face contact with a high school football player or his or her parents off the college’s campus.
During a contact period a college coach may have face to face contact with high school football players or their parents, watch high school players compete and visit their high schools, and write or phone football players or their parents.
One note. College coaches are only to say “hello” to underclassmen. Underclassmen being the 2018, 2019, and 2020 Classes. Although the whole “bump rule” is always stretched and is a violation, college coaches do it. Underclassmen should not feel that the college is not “giving him enough attention or love.” Really seniors should be the center.
