Hey knowledgeable posters:
I have always wondered what a "official" visit to a university (say Michigan for this example) was like for a star recruit. (Outside of the alcohol, drugs and wild orgies,) what do these kids do? Do they spend the whole trip on the campus with a host player, or are they setup in a hotel room? I’ve always wondered if there is a limit to the number of people allowed on official visits. If the answer was two, would a parent then have to pay for their travel expenses to be included, or are they just not allowed to come? How many kids come alone, or bring a friend? You often see recruits attending games decked out from head to toe in gear. Is that provided by the university, and is there a limit allowed by the NCAA on what can be spent for each recruit on an "official" visit without breaking the rules? Brian, maybe if you’re bored this offseason, that may be a topic for you to cover at some point. I’m sure many of us “old, slow, short” guys who never sniffed a D1 program let alone be courted by one would like to know.
