Official Visits???

edited August 2011 in Athletic Recruits
Curious about the time period official visits are offered by coaches (early, mid, late August? Later?) and how to (hopefully) juggle multiple offers. If 5 OV's are allowed to DI/DII, must OV's wrap up in October? Or do OV's continue to take place after Nov. 1? Assuming recruit wants to apply ED to first choice, how close to the Nov. 1 can/do those OV's take place?
Any insight is appreciated. Thanks!

    Francois, this seems to be pretty sport dependent. What's the sport?

    I believe it does depend upon the sport. For my D's sport, she can begin any Official visits after she returns to school and is a senior in high school.

    Check the NCAA site. You can Google the official visit calendar for your specific sport.

    ED deadlines vary by college (11/1 to 12/1). In at least one case my D was given possible dates for an OV in November. She opted/juggled to schedule all 4 OVs before the first ED deadline on her list.

    Some coaches are just making first phone contact.....(a bit late to capture my D's attention!)
