NCAA Division I to begin allowing in-person recruiting on June 1
The wait for a return to normalcy on the NCAA Division I soccer recruiting circuit is finally coming to an end, as the Recruiting Dead Period will officially expire on May 31, 2021.
Following several extensions of the Recruiting Dead Period which began in March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, the NCAA Division I Council has announced that normal recruiting activities can resume on June 1.
Council members also acknowledged that schools in different areas of the country could be limited based on campus, local and state requirements.
“We are delighted to announce that as of June 1, all sports will return to their normal recruiting calendars,” said Council chair M. Grace Calhoun, athletics director at Pennsylvania. “We want to thank all prospective student-athletes, their families, coaches and current student-athletes for their patience as we determined the best way to move forward safely with recruiting in Division I.”
At the beginning of June, NCAA Division I men’s and women’s soccer programs will return to their normal recruiting calendars.
