You have no favorite boards.
I understand that the dead period began today. Can you go over the rules regarding the dead period regarding contact? While the coaches can not meet face to face with the prospects, are they allowed to contact the prospects by phone, text or email? Also if the coaches can not contact the prospects, are they allowed to contact family members? Are current players allowed to contact prospects? And one more, what if a prospect shows up at the football building to have a chat with a coach, is that allowed?
Doesn't that start Tonight at Midnight?
Dead period starts tonight at midnight. No face-to-face contact is allowed anywhere or anytime. Coaches are allowed unlimited phone calls. Not sure on family members. I covered it in the column linked below...
A look at Auburn recruiting with seven days to go until Signing Day.
here it is
The quiet period is a designated time in which schools may contact recruits via phone or mail, or visit with them on the institution's campus. However, in-person contact taking place outside of the school's campus is prohibited.
Basically the quiet period prevents coaches from camping outside the homes of recruits as National Signing Day approaches.
The most recent quiet period began at midnight on Sunday, Feb. 3, and lasts for 24 hours.
The dead period is the designated time in which no in-person contact, regardless of location, is allowed. Phone calls and mail are still permitted, however, and coaches will be blowing up phones like crazy. The dead period begins Monday, Feb. 4, and runs through National Signing Day.
Just read Bryan's post so maybe what I posted is not accurate - got it from SB nation
