LSU’s football program is being sanctioned by the NCAA for recruiting violations. Those violations by the Tigers resulted in seven penalties.
The penalties include:
One year probation. $5,000 fine (self-imposed). Limit on official football visits to 55 during the 2022-23 school year (self-imposed). (self-imposed) A one-week ban on recruiting contacts in the football program prior to the start of the 2022-23 school year (self-imposed) A reduction of seven evaluation days. Football program (self-imposed) during the Fall 2021 evaluation period. A three-year show-cause order for the former assistant coach. During that time, any NCAA member school recruiting him must be restricted from off-campus recruiting activities unless it can show cause the restrictions do not apply.
LSU’s football program violated recruiting rules when a former assistant coach and former assistant director of recruiting contacted a recruit during the COVID-19 recruiting period and offered impermissible recruiting incentives, according to a ruling released in Part 1. The Crime Panel Committee announced.
Nothing too important to the LSU football program, but it’s notable.
The Tigers will play the New Mexico Lobos this Saturday afternoon.
LSU started the 2022 season 2-1 with a loss to Florida State and wins over Southern U and Mississippi State.
