Top 5 Things Every Michigan Fan Should Know:

  1. You may not have recruiting conversations with prospect or their families. A prospect is any student who has begun classes for the 9th grade (7th grade for men's basketball). This includes in-person contact on or off Michigan's campus, by telephone or in writing (e.g., email, Twitter, Facebook, etc.)
  2. You may not provide benefits to a student-athlete, a prospect or their family/friends, unless such benefits are available to the general public or all Michigan students. Examples include: transportation, cash, gifts, meals, clothing, use of unadvertised discounts, etc.
  3. You may not use a student-athlete's name, picture or appearance in a commercial advertisement, business promotion or product endorsement.
  4. You may not purchase game tickets, apparel, equipment or awards from current student-athletes.
  5. You may not sell any memorabilia using the name or image of a current student-athlete, including items that have been autographed by a current student-athlete.
