NCAA sets sights on basketball recruiting

ATLANTA (AP) - The NCAA has taken a first step to clean up
basketball recruiting.
The Division I Legislative Council voted Thursday to prohibit
schools from hiring anyone associated with a basketball recruit for
a two-year period before or after the player enrolls at the school.
The council did not pass a proposal to limit who can be hired as
basketball camp instructors.
Joe D'Antonio, the chairman of the council, says schools were
concerned they would not be able to stage camps with a limited
number of employees. D'Antonio says there is "overwhelming
support" at the annual NCAA convention for other proposals to
clean up basketball recruiting, which may be voted on in April.
The proposal passed by the council must be affirmed by the
Division I board of directors.
