Overview of the fall basketball contact period

Friday marks the first day of the fall contact period for coaches and players. The period runs from Sept. 9 through Oct. 5 and is an important time for the coaches and players. There are rules relegating how many contacts coaches can have with a player in a calendar year, so the notion of a coach spending every day with a recruit is not plausible. The maximum time a school's coach can see a player during this period is once a week. College coaches use the period as a time to strengthen their position with targets, evaluate underclassmen, gather information and gauge the recruit's overall interest in the program. (ESPN.com)
