    What do these rule changes mean to PSA who has already committed to play for a college but has not reached September 1 of her junior year? Thanks.

    The rule is the same for her, whether she has a verbal commitment or not. She can visit campus on her own but will not be able to meet with her school’s staff or have other unofficial visit engagements until September 1 of her junior year. The communication dates and rules and are the same, too and she can call her coaches at any time. The change is that she may take an official visit in her junior year now, instead of waiting for her senior year, but she is still only allowed one of those per institution. Many universities choose to (or, have chosen to in the past) bring their senior class in together on an official visit.

    Don’t like the 5th rule presented. It hurts the college coach that can make some extra money because now going to a clinic or camp our of the prescribed range. They did not think this one thru. The Junior contact time and visit rule I love it. It is about time that we can allow these young ladies enjoy HS life while playing VB
