According to the report, the investigation involves ASU hosting recruits on-campus during college football’s recruiting dead period that begin in March 2020 and ran for 15 months in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
During this dead period, much of college football recruiting came through Zoom calls and virtual tours. Thus, many prospects around the country committed to schools that they have never seen before.
Division I schools only recently got back to normal recruiting calendars on June 1. Since that time, ASU has gotten back to hosting prospects in-person.
Currently, the Sun Devils have four high school prospects committed in the 2022 recruiting class.
We will have more on this story as the situation continues to evolve and when there is a further update.
