Yesterday, we talked about the fact that the NCAA had implemented a rule banning Instagram from being used on the recruiting trail.
Today, the NCAA clarified things for us in a statement:
“Schools can and do use Instagram in all sorts of ways: to promote events, post game highlights and give a sense of what it’s like to be on campus We at the NCAA regularly use Instagram for similar purposes.”
“There is no NCAA ban of Instagram. Schools just can’t alter the content of photos – and to be clear, we do not consider Instagram’s filters as content alteration – and then email them directly to recruits.”
So there you have it. Instagram away, coaches.
For what it’s worth, the fact that this rule or clarification or bylaw — or whatever you want to call it — earned two separate posts on CBT is ridiculous. No recruit is going to be picking a school based on who sends them the best photoshopped picture.
