NCAA and MSU Athletic Compliance

Question of the Month

Q: May a current student-athlete and a prospective student-athlete (PSA) connect and communicate via a social media platform at any time and publicly communicate with or about a PSA?

A: Yes, provided the communication does not occur at the direction of a coach or other athletics department staff member and the communication does not relate to the PSA’s recruitment (e.g., a student-athlete may not publicly comment on a PSA’s verbal commitment, a student-athlete may not post any information that would publicize a PSA’s visit to campus), including information that was initially generated by the PSA (e.g., “retweet”).

If you have any questions related to athletic compliance issues, please email Bracky Brett, associate athletic director for compliance, at or call 662-325-0245.
