I think if they're in the portal, contact is okay. Don't think you can encourage them to get in the pool tho.
No, I meant, are you allowed to encourage kids from other programs to transfer.

I believe it is a recruiting violation for coaches/staff to reach out to a kid while he is still under scholarship at another school. That said, I know this happens a lot, and teams are very rarely investigated let alone punished.
