NCAA lowers recruiting age limit

Mike Krzyzewski, Roy Williams and Sidney Lowe say they don't plan to start offering scholarships to middle schoolers any time soon. But the three men's basketball coaches seemed to support the NCAA's decision to define seventh- and eighth-graders as "prospective student athletes" -- because the goal of the new rule is to defend the kids from unregulated recruiting. The NCAA previously defined a prospect as a ninth-grader or older. (Raleigh News & Observer)
