NCAA To Review Text Messaging Legislation

The board could reaffirm the text messaging decision, reject the decision or create new legislation. Current rules place no restrictions on text messaging with recruits.

The new rule is scheduled to take effect August first. Should the board make changes, the rule would be rescinded. If it is affirmed, the rule would remain in place until a January vote at the organization's annual convention in Nashville, Tennessee.

Many of the schools that appealed the original legislation said they favored some text messaging restrictions but not an outright ban.

The board also will consider override requests on rules that limit roster size and financial aid available for college baseball teams and date changes for the men's and women's golf seasons.
