Texas A&M Compliance Is Providing Education For The Entourage

Compliance offices take note of what Texas A&M University is doing.  Texas A&M Compliance is on Facebook and Twitter, but so are many other programs.  How many offices are publishing a “Guide to NCAA Rules for Those Associated with Student-Athletes?”  Titled “ENTOURAGE”, the guide is distributed to individuals associated with Texas A&M Athletics and those individuals affiliated with Texas A&M student-athletes.  I am a big fan of its structure, the fact that it is easy to read, and encompasses a variety of subjects.  The real question, though, is will any student-athletes actually read it and/or retain its information?
