This is similar to the Recruiting/Contact Period, but coaches can't have any off-campus contact with recruits. The following is still allowed:

So those are the rules for April, but where will the recruits be playing? Below are the schedules for the three major AAU leagues--Nikes EYBL, Adidas Uprising, and the Under Armour Association.

IMPORTANT: Keep in mind that Illinois is a Nike school. Shoe companies aren't always the deciding factors in recruitments, but overall the Illini are more likely to land players from the Nike EYBL.
