NCAA: Schools allowed to pay for two guardians on official visits
The NCAA has approved a rule change that will allow schools to pay for the travel and meal expenses of two guardians on official visits, according to ESPN.
The rule will be implemented on Aug. 1, in time for recruits from the class of 2017 to take advantage of the change.
Previously, schools had been allowed to pay for the travel and accommodations of recruits, but guardians had to fund their own way if they wanted to join the player on the visit.
The change is one of two new rules that could have a major affect on recruiting. The NCAA also recently banned satellite camps, ruling that schools have to stay on their campuses when hosting events for recruits.
