NCAA rules define a "prospective student-athlete" as anyone who has started classes for the 9th grade (or 7th grade in the sport of boy's basketball). NCAA rules govern the type and frequency of communication and contact that a University of Richmond coach may have with a prospective student-athlete. The Department of Athletics asks that any recruiting-related questions be directed to the Athletics Compliance Office. For more information, please refer to the links below.
