After a few weeks of dead period, in which no face-to-face contact is allowed between coaches and recruits, we entered a quiet period at midnight. This is a huge deal for Ohio State (more on this soon), but before we get too far into it, what exactly is the quiet period? What’s the difference between quiet and dead? SBNation’s Bud Elliott has you covered:
“The quiet period tightens things a bit more, preventing any off-campus contact or viewing. Visits to the college’s campus and written or electronic communications are still permitted. Coaches often try to have prospects visit campus unofficially during this time in the spring and early summer, so that they can become familiar with campus.
