NCAA Alleging Violations Against Oregon

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — The NCAA is alleging Oregon violated the organization’s regulations in the way it used recruiting services over the past four years.

The allegations were contained in two documents, labeled “Proposed Findings of Violations,” obtained Friday in a public records request by several media outlets. While the documents use language that indicates the NCAA and the university agree to certain points, an athletic department spokesman says the university does not acknowledge any violations.

The NCAA has been looking into Oregon’s recruiting practices since questions arose over a 2010 payment of $25,000 to Willie Lyles and his Houston-based recruiting service. The information that Oregon said Lyles provided for the fee was largely outdated.

The draft, which is heavily redacted, suggests Oregon’s use of three scouting services did not conform with NCAA rules, and the Ducks exceeded the number of coaches allowed to recruit.
