    So does this mean there is a dead period now for hockey as well? So this guy can't even reach out to prospective high school players until August?

    Curious how many of the recruits he had going to Colgate will follow him to LI.

    I believe electronic recruiting contacts are still allowed, just no in person visits to or by the recruit. He's probably going to put together his first class via Zoom.

    I will be surprised if any recruits follow him to LI as they've all signed Colgate LOIs by now. However, I suppose it's possible that there might be a player recruited with a partial ride (or even a walk-on) that would ask for a release to take a bigger scholarship at LIU - although I've yet to hear the LIU AD confirm what, if any, level of scholarships they will offer. Otherwise, why would one turn down a chance to play in an established program/league at a quality school in a beautiful facility for the complete unknown that is LIU hockey?

    I think the recruiting ban is limited to in-person visits to campuses or coach-in-home visits for obvious reasons. I would be stunned if coaches were not permitted any electronic or phone contact with prospective athletes.

    Excellent point!

    Forgot to add that Jack Riley also coached the US to a gold medal at the 1960 Winter Olympics. An upset for the ages that almost equals the 1980 gold medal but has since faded into history.
