INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The NCAA's board of directors is suspending two recruiting rules changes that were passed two months ago.

Citing an outcry from colleges over the impact on recruits and their families, the board decided to shelve new legislation that deregulated which staff members can perform recruiting tasks and what printed materials can be sent to recruits. Suspended rules do not take effect until modifications are made.

The board did not change its stance on the most contentious rules changes, which eliminate restrictions on how recruits are contacted and how many times coaches can contact recruits outside of official no-contact periods. Forty-eight schools want those measures overridden. Seventy-five schools must sign the override petition before Wednesday's 5 p.m. EDT deadline to put those rules on hold.
