Based on the communication and analysis I have heard/seen, the most impactful change on youngers is the inability to do an unofficial visit prior to Junior year. Since most of these occur for the dual purpose of the player getting to know the team/culture/school and the team getting to better assess the player's personality/fit prior to the verbal commit, they occur during the school year from September-April. So I think the impact will start to be felt on the '03 (and a lesser extent '04) players next fall. Some coaches may delay giving verbal offers pending this visit, while some players may be faced with making a decision to verbally commit with less opportunity to get familiar the program they are committing to. Someone who is more a student of game theory may be able to make a more informed prediction on how coaches might react, since the rules do not appear to prohibit verbal commits at any time. There will also be an impact on '02s starting in the fall, who may now be offered an official visit as a way to show some love and sell the school.
