Quote:
USC and Washington are investigating whether a football coach who worked under Steve Sarkisian at Washington violated NCAA rules by paying for private tutoring and online classes for a recruit.


The allegations surround the recruitment of Andrew Basham, a former defensive lineman at Lynnwood High in Washington, who signed a letter of intent with the Huskies last February but did not qualify academically to enroll.

Didn't UW fans say they wanted to keep him at the minimum? Laughing

I think so. Recruiting violations like this can have big consequences. It could be a very big deal. And there's no thread for all alleged violations to go in.

I didn't really want Tosh back especially when a recruit said he was recruiting to USC.

The only thing I dont like about that is the coach is getting in trouble because he was helping the kid to improve his academic so he can be accepted into the school.

I know thats illegal and stuff but its not like he was paying the kid money to come to school or giving him gifts and etc to entice him to come to Washington. The kid wanted to go to Washington but his grades were not good enough so he tried hard to help him by getting him into online courses and got him a personal tutor to help him with academics. Its not like he tried to change his scores or have someone else take his tests. Just tried to improve the kid academically.

but oh well...

There's not going to be much punishment, if any. If Oregon had a small penalty, this will be even lesser.

I think this isn't as clear cut of an infraction as most, but I still agree with it being illegal and here is why:

When you see things like this you have to think about the alternatives. The one here is: if you allow for schools to hire private tutors for athletes, you have to for everyone.

Think about how far that could reach. Imagine the lawsuits for preferential treatment. Who is eligible to receive financial assistance for academic help? Remember, a commitment is nothing more than a verbal, non-binding agreement.
Plenty of times recruits are plenty good to get a scholarship but schools don't even pursue when they see their transcripts. Would they be eligible for assistance? From which school? If a school helped a recruit, would they be contractually obligated to go to that school?

This would be a mess to regulate
