Just saw dee liner walking into the football complex with his family. The whole family was decked out in bama gear, including dee, roll tide
He is in ttown. I know this for a fact
When I read stories like this, recruit (Dee) and family decked out in BAMA gear, I am curious what is the NCAA rule on how much merchandise schools can provide during the official visit (I am assuming it's a dollar amount limit) and if it provides for "x" amount for guests of recruit, in this case his family.
Can anyone with knowledge of the rule share with me.
Who says it was given to them? They could have bought it themselves. I'm sure they are able to do that. I believe there are stores that sell clothes with Alabama on them. Can anyone confirm this?
We all know families of recruits cannot afford to buy merchandise. This is common sense.
We used to have those stores. Pretty sure Jimbo hired them away though...
I am interested in learning the rule. If you do not know, no problem. I will wait for another fellow member to share. Thanks.
Why do you assume the merchandise was given to them? If you do not know, no problem. I will wait for you to share. Thanks.
I just looked at the NCAA rulebook. Recruits are allowed one Dodge Charger , $5000 in clothing at T-town Mens wear and a free fishing trip. g
All the gear is provided to them via WalMart. T-shirts are $9.99 and they have really cool sweatshirts for $14.99. The hats are 2 for $20.
"The (All In) Family"
I was always under the assumption that schools could provide merchandise as part of the "official visit". I also assumed it was likely controlled by a "up to a dollar amount". So I was mainly curious if anyone knew the amount established by NCAA rules. It may be zero - so I have my answer.
As for guest of prospect, I was also curious if the same rules allow for a certain level of merchandise. The answer I was basically looking for was a yes or no . If yes, what limits are applicable.
I mentioned I had always been curious how this works, I just decided to ask the question today. It has nothing to do with a specific recruit such as Dee and/or his family - just a general overall question about the recruiting process.

they can't get any free clothes. period. though when I was on a recruiting trip to Arkansas I did load up on gear that was 90% off but curiously it was advertised t hat way
Never received any free clothes during my trips. Parents did go in supe store and got stuff as they came on my Bama trip. But I did not get anything for free from the other trips I took either
The school isn't providing any of it. The recruit must pay for all of it.
Sorry did not mean to plus you. This is of the dumbest post ever.
I wonder if security would visit me if i pulled up a lounge chair and a bag of popcorn and sat outside the Moore Bldg?
