NCAA suspends all recruiting

In further response to the coronavirus pandemic, the NCAA suspended both on- and off-campus recruiting for all sports until April 15.

This move is another in the continuing disruption of college athletics in response to the coronavirus threat. The NCAA earlier canceled all of its winter and spring championships, including the men’s and women’s basketball tournaments and the College World Series in baseball.

The Big 12 had implemented a recruiting ban through March 29. The nationwide ban will extend that into mid-April. The Big 12 also had suspended all conference competition through at least March 29.

The Big Ten announced it has canceled all remaining athletic competition for the 2019-20 season. The earliest the conference will resume intercollegiate athletic competitions will be for sports in the fall 2020 season.
