NCAA rules define a "prospective student athlete" as someone who has started ninth grade classes. Many NCAA rules prescribe what may and may not be done in respect of prospective student athletes............for all sports.

So, for example, while a coach can text your eighth grade kid every day........if the coach is creepy enough.......the coach has to stop texting for a few years once the kid gets in ninth grade
