All I'm getting at is the wording they have communicated to this point is vague as to whom this affects.
"Also part of the new legislation are strict rules that mirror what is used in college basketball for individuals associated with prospects, or IAWP. The IAWP rules are designed to prevent schools from hiring anyone associated with a prospect for noncoaching positions.
For example, the high school coach of a prospect is not allowed to take a paid or volunteer job as an analyst or strength coach at the college recruiting that coach's prospect. An IAWP is permitted to take a job at the same college only as a full-time, on-field coach.
Penalties for violating the IAWP rules range from permanent ineligibility of the players involved to the suspension of a head coach or assistant. The IAWP rules are effective immediately and retroactive to include contracts signed on or after Jan. 18, 2017.
"This really emanates out of the camp conversations that we had," Bowlsby said. "There are a lot of shenanigans that have been going on in the camp environment where a high school coach or a seven-on-seven coach shows up with a busload of kids and gets a big honorarium for bringing them to camp while they're having a so-called unofficial visit.
"There isn't anything in this piece of legislation that keeps people moving from one job to the other -- either from a high school position or from one college position to another college position. What it does do, however, is put restrictions on a high school coach that would take a noncoaching position with a university and then bring two or three prospects with him. There's a quid pro quo that is troubling in the recruiting environment, and we sought to change that and regulate that."
