Compliance Is Every Fan's Issue
The Internet and the plethora of team-related site have caused serious concerns about NCAA compliance in recent years. Kentucky seems to be a hot spot for this, but the potential problems are important enough to lead the compliance coordinator at Duke to reach out to Blue Devil fans on one of the most popular Duke forums at The Devils's Den.
I think being proactive like this is a GREAT idea, and the coordinator, Todd Mesibov, shares links with some important information.
The bottom line is that any contact between someone who is not an authorized representative of a school and a recruiting prospect to try to influence him/her to come to your favorite school is extremely regulated and could be a violation which could cost the school the opportunity to sign the recruit.
So let's be careful out there, okay.
