The NCAA has announced that the recruiting dead period, which was initially put in place in March of 2020 and repeatedly extended in response to the COVID 19 pandemic, will be lifted at the end of May.

“We are delighted to announce that as of June 1, all sports will return to their normal recruiting calendars,” NCAA Division I Council Chair M. Grace Calhoun said in a statement. “We want to thank all prospective student-athletes, their families, coaches and current student-athletes for their patience as we determined the best way to move forward safely with recruiting in Division I.”

So, beginning June 1st, in-person recruiting will once again be allowed for the first time in over a year. After nearly 15 months of in-person recruiting banned, expect June to be the most hectic visit period in recent history. The announcement was not unexpected as schools and prospects have been making tentative plans for this decision for several weeks.

Liberty coaches have always talked about how important it is to get recruits on campus as the facilities the Flames offer in all sports is unparalleled by other ASUN and Group of Five schools. Expect to hear of recruits scheduling visits to the Lynchburg campus very soon.
