Recruits discuss earlier official visits

The NCAA does not allow college football recruits to take official visits, which are paid for by the university, earlier than the first day of a student athlete’s senior year in high school. College coaches have recently spoken out about changing a few recruiting rules, including instituting an early signing period, but how do the recruits themselves feel about the NCAA’s guidelines?
