The NCAA's Division I Board of Directors approved five new football recruiting rules on Wednesday which are to be implemented immediately.

The NCAA's Division I Board of Directors approved five new football recruiting rules on Oct. 30.

According to Michelle Brutlag Hosick of the NCAA's official website, the new rules are "effective immediately." These new measures are by-products of months of extensive research which included surveys of student-athletes and coaches.

The new rules are as follows:

a. Allowing football student-athletes to participate in preparations for the season over a period of two months during the summer. Among those which are part of the preparations include up to eight hours per week of strength training, which may include two hours of film review. These student-athletes must be enrolled in summer school.

 b. Banning a school's staff members from attending all-star games and from interacting with prosepctive recruits throughout the duration of these games.

c. "Establish a dead period when no in-person recruiting can take place," per Hosick.

d. Implementing a 14-day dead period in late June and early July for Football Bowl Subdivision schools.

e. Allowing schools to subsidize meals for up to four family members who accompany a recruit when he is on an official visit. 

The Associated Press also reported that the board asked the Leadership Council to look into the appropriateness of heavy reliance on online learning for student-athletes.
This was due to the fact that some university presidents want to emphasize actual classroom learning among student-atheltes while others maintained that they be given the same opportunities as regular students.
