Now that the NCAA has extended its recruiting dead period once again due to COVID-19, Kansas football and basketball will have to adjust once again along with every other program.

For the fourth time since March, the NCAA has decided to extend the recruiting dead period, this time through August 31. The dead period means that there is no face-to-face contact allowed between recruits and coaches for any sport; however, coaches can still contact recruits via phone, email, text, etc. For Kansas football and basketball coaches Les Miles and Bill Self, they’ve been dealing with these restrictions for months now, and both coaches have found ways to still be effective and land solid recruits.
