WHO IS A PROSPECT?
Who is considered a "prospect" (prospective student-athlete)?
"A prospective student-athlete ("prospect") is a student who has started classes for the ninth grade. In addition, a student who has not started classes for the ninth grade becomes a prospective student-athlete if the institution provides such an individual (or the individual's relatives or friends) any financial assistance or other benefits that the institution does not provide to prospective students generally.
How long is a prospective student-athlete considered a prospect?
A prospective student-athlete remains a prospect even after signing a National Letter of Intent to attend the University of Kansas, and both the institution and the prospective student-athlete continue to be governed by NCAA recruiting legislation until: (a) the individual officially registers and enrolls in a minimum full-time program of studies and attends classes in any term of a four-year collegiate institution's regular academic year (excluding summer); or (b) the individual participates in a regular squad practice or competition at a four-year collegiate institution that occurs before the beginning of any term, or (c) the individual officially registers and enrolls and attends classes during the summer prior to initial enrollment.
