Quiet Period Versus Dead Period

So help me out here guys.

We are currently in a Dead Period during which a coach may not have any in person contact with a recruit or his parents until 5/27.  He may call or write the recruit or his parents, however.

So presumably, a recruit could visit a campus and a coach could walk him through the campus via cell phone.  One would assume this is what's happening with JA.

After that we are still in a Quiet Period until July 5th.  The coach can only have face to face meetings with the recruit or his parents on campus.  The coach can still write and call the recruit and parents.

There are then 2 Evaluation Periods in July covering 22 days.  The coach can watch you play but still cannot talk to the recruit or parents off campus.

Logically, if JA was serious about going somewhere else, he would wait until after the 27th of May so that he could meet coaches face to face.  Otherwise he is just looking at campuses.  If he is currently meeting coaches at other schools they are committing NCAA violations.

Any thoughts here?  JA just sightseeing or is there something more going on, possibly in violation of NCAA rules?  It doesn't make sense to visit a campus before the 27th.
