As the NCAA attempts to navigate the new era of name, image and likeness opportunities for student-athletes, the Division I Board of Directors released guidelines Monday regarding booster-led collectives.

Ross Dellenger of Sports Illustrated reported the primary purpose of the new guidelines is "clarifying existing bylaws that prohibit boosters from being involved in recruiting."

Dan Murphy of ESPN noted a group of athletic directors and conference commissioners formulated the guidelines "amid growing concern that some boosters and NIL-focused companies, known as collectives, are offering money as incentives to attend a particular school."

While the guidelines can be retroactive and open schools up to punishments for any actions during the past year as recruiting adapted to the NIL era, that doesn't mean there will suddenly be a long list of notable programs facing sanctions.
