June 15th has emerged as one of the primary dates on the Michigan basketball recruiting calendar. Many simply refer to it as “offer day” as it’s the first day that John Beilein will extend scholarship offers to prospects that have wrapped up their sophomore year of high school. Beilein’s offer policy is based on a choice to follow an NABC guideline, or request, but there are also important NCAA rules that come into play on June 15th.
Contact is the name of the game in the NCAA rule book. Beginning on June 15th, coaches are now permitted to make unlimited contact with prospects. Rule book:
Coaches will be permitted to make unlimited calls and send unlimited text messages with recruits after June 15 following their sophomore year. The deregulation extends to social media, where private messages will be allowed. Public messages continue to be prohibited because of the rule preventing institutions from publicizing their recruiting efforts.
