EARLY RECRUITING ISSUES

"Student-Athlete"

Early recruiting undermines the NCAA intercollegiate athletic model and importance of being a “student-athlete”

"Well-Being"

Early recruiting is detrimental to the physical, emotional and mental “well-being” of a student-athlete

Transparency

Early recruiting lacks transparency with student-athletes “committing” years before the college admissions process

Wealth Disparity

Early recruiting creates a wealth disparity barrier that disadvantages student-athletes who cannot afford to be recruited
