We just received news yesterday that the NCAA Division I Council has extended the dead period for all sports through April 15. The dead period has been in place since the pandemic took place in early March. This basically means that there has been no official campus visits or in-person evaluations during this entire time and will continue until they lift the restrictions. There will be a meeting of the Dvision I Council in December to add flexibility to virtual recruiting which can allow all coaches, full-time staff members and current students to be on recruiting calls without a countable coach being present.
Now this shouldn’t completely scare everyone because there are still ways to get recruited via phone, video, social media or email. We are still committed to writing as many articles on each athlete as we can for ultimate exposure. As we have written before there are many ways that you can still get exposure.
Here are a few ways you can help us help each athlete get the best exposure possible. Tell your favorite athlete(s) to:
- Keep their athletic recruiting profiles as updated as possible with heights, club affiliations, contact info, etc
- Produce video content to keep fresh eyes on your play (it doesn’t have to be the best looking…just as long as it showcases them)
- Send us emails to give us stats for the week or tell us any awards earned
- Tag us on social media on any game updates, scores, awards, commitments (Twitter: @PrepDigTX or myself @CoachMikeDZ or on Facebook)
- DM us on social media for any updates
- Share each other’s stories, posts, tweets and create a wonderful community who helps each other get seen.
We are here to help in any way we can. I speak to college coaches daily about players in all levels and am extremely approachable whether in person at matches or through the phone or email. I love the coaches, trainers, parents, and other fans of players that have reached out over the last few months to help their favorite players get more exposure. This company is truly here to help all of the wonderful players get help in achieving their dreams of playing at the next level. We love covering this wonderful sport. Don’t be afraid to communicate with us about all of your favorite players. Please help us fill the 2023 classes and 2024 classes with more talented players.
As always stay tuned for more articles on your favorite athletes. If you have anyone you think we should watch out for, please shoot me an email with some info at email@example.com. Also don’t forget to help these kids get more exposure by sharing our stories with your friends. Help us help them by simply retweeting on Twitter or sharing on Facebook. Thanks for following Texas Family!
