RECRUITING VIOLATIONS: ISU Asks NCAA For Probation
The Iowa State University Athletics Department is in the process of correcting violations made in recruiting with the NCAA.
Iowa State is not saying which sports or coaches made the mistakes, but they have entered the summary disposition process with the NCAA and are asking for two-years of probation for the violations.
In a press release ISU officials stated that the violations happened between 2008 and 2011, and they discovered and reported them to the NCAA in November of 2011.
Upon review of 750,000 recruiting calls and texts 79 were impermissible. They also found that coaches had failed to document nearly 1,500 calls which never connected with a prospect due to dropped calls or voicemail.
Iowa State says they have self-imposed sanctions in place, which were served in the 2011-2012 school year. Now, they are asking that the NCAA to place them on probation.
Athletics Director Jamie Pollard said, “We are hopeful the NCAA will recognize our sincere effort to adhere to NCAA rules and will accept our self-imposed sanctions,”
