WHO IS A PROSPECTIVE STUDENT-ATHLETE?
The NCAA defines a "prospect" as anyone who has started classes for the ninth grade. In addition, a student who has not started the ninth grade becomes a prospect if the institution provides any financial assistance or other benefit not provided to prospective students in general.
WHAT IS CONSIDERED RECRUITING?
Recruiting is any solicitation of a prospect or the prospect's relatives by a staff member or representative of the institution's athletics interests (including boosters) for the purpose of securing the prospect's enrollment and ultimate participation in the institution's intercollegiate athletics program.
