Alabama acknowledged 27 NCAA secondary rules violations by the school’s athletic department over the past year on Tuesday, according to the school’s website.
Fourteen of the violations had to do with impermissible contact with recruits, either by text message or phone call.
The men’s basketball program was most frequent violator with six violations.
What about Nick Saban and the football program? It was reported with four violations, including: a coach sending an impermissible text message to a recruit’s father (penalty was 30 days of no contact), a coach sending a Facebook friend request to two prospective student-athletes before the permissible date (coach had to de-friend them on Facebook and not allowed any correspondence for 60 days), a coach provided a recruit an impermissible document, and a current student-athlete got a scholarship check before it was certified.
