Texas has joined New York in cancelling all Division 1 college basketball recruiting events for the month of June, citing the discriminatory policies of the National Federation of High Schools (NFHS).
“Yes, with the restrictions they put on us we’re pretty much in the same boat as New York,” Rick Sherley, Executive Director of the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches (TABC), said Friday morning by phone.
As exclusively reported Wednesday by ZAGSBLOG, New York opted to cancel all June recruiting events because of discriminatory NFHS policies. Under the new Rice Commission recommendations aimed at cleaning up college basketball recruiting, the NFHS, which has no prior experience running large-scale recruiting events, is now in charge of sanctioning and sponsoring June events.
