The NCAA has taken a first step to clean up basketball recruiting.

The Division I Legislative Council voted Thursday to prohibit schools from hiring anyone associated with a basketball recruit for a two-year period before or after the player enrolls at the school.

The council did not pass a proposal to limit who can be hired as basketball camp instructors.

Joe D’Antonio, the chairman of the council, says schools were concerned they would not be able to stage camps with a limited number of employees. D’Antonio says there is “overwhelming support” at the annual NCAA convention for other proposals to clean up basketball recruiting, which may be voted on in April.

The proposal passed by the council must be affirmed by the Division I board of directors.
