Non-Coaching Staff Members may engage in all evaluation activities as long as the event takes place on the staff-member’s campus.

The answer is FALSE

Non-Coaching staff members may engage in on-campus evaluations of video and with the adoption of NCAA Autonomy Proposal 2017-99, non-coaching staff members may now engage in on-campus selection of prospects on video.

This piece of legislation has an immediate effective date.

This document contains questions and answers to assist the NCAA membership in its understanding of NCAA Division I Proposal No. 2017-99 (recruiting coordination functions – on-campus evaluation of video and on-campus selection of prospective student-athlete).

Question No. 1:  May a noncoaching staff member engage in any evaluation activity other than on-campus evaluation of video or the on-campus selection of prospects?
