However, since June 1st, strength and conditioning coaches have been allowed to virtually observe workouts if specifically requested by the student-athlete.
The NCAA has also encouraged all colleges to stop all official and unofficial visits. Recruiting will not stop completely; coaches and recruits can still communicate over email, phone, text and social media.
