There might not be official offers, but this won't make any difference.
Excuse me CougarBlue but you might want to hold off ripping the Deseret News for
their proof reading efforts. I think most people who read the article realized
that the author was describing the pending rule change of allowing telephone
communication with possible recruits and not the early offering of a
scholarships. I don't like offering kids in their sophomore year as well
although BYU and other schools have gone in that direction. As long as the
playing field is equal, I'd like to see schools have to wait until the summer
following the junior year to offer a scholarship. Just my opinion.
It just keeps getting worse BYU. First Utah to the Pac 10, now this. You won't
be able to pressure kid to commit early before they know better.
I agree, this would be a good change.....and I agree with gonefishn, the Ute
Conference has enough problems already so getting rid of the Cougars recruiters
during Gremlin games would be nice, the 9 year olds don't need the added
good rule change, here here!I think this will give a boost to the kid that
can not afford all the travel and other costs associated with many of the camps.
It will also give a boost to the kid that does not start his sophmore or Junior
year for any number of reasons but is lights out his senior year. Maybe there
will be a scholarship left for that guy come oct-nov.BYU will have to stop
scouting Ute conferance little league. Just joking, the U of U has gotten just
as bad to keep up.
I think its a good proposal, even though it will force BYU to change its
recruiting methods substantially. Bronco likes to recruit kids early and get
verbal commits when they are still high school sophomores and juniors, but I
think that is too early for kids to be making decisions like that. These kids
should be focusing on high school still, not making decisions about which
college they are going to attend after high school, years before they are even
going to be done with high school. I think this is what the NCAA is trying to do
The NCAA is willing to help the BCS schools by backing this proposal, but won't
create a D-1 football playoff. It's a racket.
This is a good rule and maybe they should restrict the recruiting age even more.
