There was also an article today, which I can't find now, suspending all recruiting until April 15, so no on campus visits or coach visits. It is like a dead period except the coaches can contract the athletes by phone or email. The article did say that although 2020 athletes seem to be the ones most people think of as being impacted, it will most likely be the 2021 athletes as the seniors NEXT year will have more time to plan for a 5th year (either not graduating or starting grad school).

I know one current junior who will take the extra year, and he is on a full scholarship now so likely those high school 2021s will have less money available.
