The NCAA could be preparing to dump a key recruiting rule that hasn’t really done what the organization hoped it would do.
According to Bryan Fischer of Athlon Sports, the NCAA is evaluating the future of the so-called “Nick Saban rule,” which prohibits coaches from leaving campus to travel during the spring evaluation period.
The rule has been in place since 2008. At the time, coaches were allowed to travel during spring evaluations. While they could not speak with recruits, they were allowed to talk to high school coaches and teachers about potential recruits.
