Ohio State self-reports accidental texts sent by 4-year-old to recruit
Ohio State athletics department self-reported a number of NCAA violations for 2014 but one infraction is getting attention for being particularly odd.
Ohio State's student paper, The Lantern, reports that on May 27 of last year wide receivers coach Zach Smith received a call from a recruit while his four-year-old son was playing with his phone, and the kid accidentally sent an automatic text reply to the number.

Of the 47 violations the school reported to the NCAA last year, just two, including the accidental texting, involved the National Championship-winning football team.
