Some college soccer news in the NCAA about among the greatest programs in the sport. Notre Dame was discovered to have violated recruiting principles.
The person in question is a former assistant trainer who met with a recruit during an illegal period. Brian Kelly can be mentioned — not by name — at the release to get a Level III violation.
Per the NCAA:
The university, former assistant football coach and NCAA enforcement staff agreed that the former assistant coach had impermissible contact with a prospect when he met privately with the prospect in his high school before July 1 following the completion of his junior year of high school. During that meeting, the former assistant trainer expressed the school’s interest in recruiting the prospect. The former assistant football coach also had exchanged impermissible text messages with another potential on 10 occasions.
The case also included a Level III recruiting breach between the head football coach. Specifically, after initially declining a request, the head football coach impermissibly posed for a photograph with another prospect while going to the prospect’s high school during the fall evaluation period.
