Every year Ivy football is allowed two recruiting spots for “lower” academic bands.I don’t know about the other sports . These lower bands are considered a risk. I presume if the AI arrangement is being phased out it probably will happen to athletic recruiting also. The Ivy’s have never created a separate standard for the athletes-which is a good thing.

That may not be totally accurate? Unless it’s changed(?), my understanding is that Ivy football athletes are allowed “one standard deviation” (I still don’t know how to really define that) below in terms of what will be accepted for admission. I do know of a ‘21 IL football ED commit who was supposedly a high band recruit, but his very solid academic credentials put him only barely in the middle 50th percentile of non-athlete students who were admitted - right around the 25th percentile overall. So, the assumption is that there were definitely a fair number of admits who were admitted with lower academic credentials, especially when you factor in the “one standard deviation.”
