With unlimited contact by college coaches to star recruits, does it promote bonding or exhaust players?

I think it insanity to allow unlimited contact with recruits.

Some players may find this process exhausting and some may love the chance to develop that bonding with their future coach and university. For me, I love it. I think that this process does develop a bonding relationship between a recruit and coach. It helps to cement that bond. Who knows sometimes during this process a recruit might discover something about the coach that may or may not help them sign with that school. So I think that this process does help to develop some bonding between recruit and college coaches.

I don't really understand...IF you don't really want to be bothered, protect your contact information. Yes, a few clever recruiters would still be able to track you down with a bit or effort...but seriously, most of these kids and their folks readily GIVE this info out and are then "surprised" that they're called night and day!

I think there should be limits to time of day & number of times a week. These are high school kids - not many are adequately prepared to handle the intense amount of attention they receive and sometimes neither are their parents.

Three prized Minnesota recruits, calls from famous coaches across the country following important milestones but one name not mentioned: Tubby Smith. Maybe that lack of industry explains his lackluster recruiting and dismissal.

Gene has it exactly right, as usual, the NCAA has become all about the money. We need to go back to the freshmen ineligible rule and also give these kids some legal spending money. Can you expect a kid from the poor side of town to be a high profile athlete yet not have a legal dime to take his girlfriend out for a hamburger???
