The NCAA’s Division I Council on Thursday extended the ongoing dead period yet again, this time through Aug. 31.

The existing dead period had been set through July 31, which was an extension from the original extension to June 30.

The current dead period is in place for all sports.

Considering all the heavy lifting schools are doing just to get their own players on campus, it’s hard to imagine the NCAA giving the green light for recruits to travel to campus any time soon.

And given that reality, it seems it’s only a matter of time until we start to hear talk of the appropriate NCAA committee eliminating the December signing period with the hope of making up for lost time in early 2021.

As always, stay tuned to The Scoop for the latest.
