From ESPN: “NCAA suspends all recruiting in Division I through April 15”

The NCAA is suspending on-campus and off-campus recruiting for all Division I sports through April 15.

In the wake of the coronavirus threat, the NCAA has taken measures to mitigate any risks associated with the virus, and that now includes recruiting. The NCAA recently canceled remaining winter and spring championships, while some conferences have made decisions to further cancel competition.

That includes the Big Ten, which has suspended all athletic competition through April 6.

The decision was made by the Division I council coordination committee. Other divisional membership groups are meeting Friday and are expected to announce their individual decisions.

Suspending Division I recruiting is one more measure the NCAA is putting in place to reduce the risk of exposure to the virus. The suspension eliminates unofficial visits through at least April 15.
