• You may forward information about prospective student-athletes to the appropriate coaching staff.
• You may have contact with a prospect regarding permissible pre-enrollment activities such as summer employment, provided the prospect has already signed a National Letter of Intent and the Compliance Office is aware that you are making these contacts in regard to employment arrangements.
• You may have a telephone conversation with a prospect only if the prospect initiates the call. Institutional staff member may not prearrange such a call and you are not permitted to have a recruiting conversation, but may exhibit normal civility. You must refer any questions about Elon's athletics program to an athletics department staff member or coach.
• You may view a prospect’s athletic contest at your own initiative provided you do not contact the prospect or his/her parents. In addition, you may not contact the prospect’s coach, principal or guidance counselor in an attempt to evaluate the prospect.
