Area athletes in Door and Kewaunee Counties hoping to catch the eye of a college coach will have to wait a little longer for that phone call.
The NCAA announced earlier this week that the COVID-19 pandemic has forced them to extend their no-contact period until July 31st. That is a month later than originally planned. This means prospective student-athletes cannot come on campus for in-person visits and coaches cannot contact recruits. According to ESPN, NCAA Division I Council Coordination Committee Chairperson M. Grace Calhoun said coaches can focus on the student-athletes already in their programs and may soon be coming back for workouts.
