How many guest can a recruit bring with him and be paid for by the university? Do the parents/siblings/friends/handlers have to pay their own way?
Could CNS fly back to California with EV and family on a commercial flight and then have an in-home visit Sunday? I know recruits can't fly on the school's planes, but is there any restrictions on a coach traveling with them on the commercial flight?
Unless my memory is off, my parents paid for there flight from Cali when they came to Bama with me. We had a hotel room with 2 beds so we shared or they would have paid there own. The OV and expenses are for the player. When I was at Bama and would host a recruit we had a small per diem we could use on them but if there family came it didnt go to far as if I went to snack bar at stadium they would all order and blow through the money, that kinda pissed me off as I wanted funds left over for the night life.
An in-home on Sunday is not possible. Quiet period for that day, which means no face-to-face except on campus of institution. Dead period begins on Monday, so no face-to-face at all.
Here's what the NCAA says, which implies only one parent can be paid for.
During an official visit the college can pay for transportation to and from the college for the prospect, lodging and three meals per day for both the prospect and the parent or guardian, as well as reasonable entertainment expenses including three tickets to a home sports event.
