Impacts of new recruiting period being felt.'s Jeff Goldman wrote a nice piece recently on how the elimination of the April recruiting period impacts new college coaches. Mainly they can't see multiple players at once and they're not playing against the premier competition. The main option is open gyms at a player's school during this contact period. But funny, the kids aren't at their schools during much of the period, they're on the road with their club teams.

The NCAA was trying to keep kids in school on Fridays but this year the events didn't go away. It'll be interesting to see who blinks 1st, the NCAA by changing the rules via pressure from the coaches or if the events start to fall by the wayside.
