Report: Baylor Basketball Program Penalized For Recruiting Violations
The Baylor University basketball program has agreed to a self-imposed penalty of three years probation after the NCAA discovered a large number of recruiting violations over the last 2 1/2 years, according to ESPN.
The Baylor administration and the NCAA enforcement staff compiled a 66-page report documenting 738 impermissible text messages and 528 impermissible phone calls made by the men's and women's hoops programs. The NCAA said that men's coach Scott Drew failed to monitor his program and will be suspended for two Big 12 games next season in addition to recruiting restrictions; women's coach Kim Mulkey also faces restrictions. The men's and women's teams will each lose two scholarships, and Mulkey will be prohibited from recruiting off campus for the entire summer recruiting period (July), among other penalties. Baylor will have no more additional penalties beyond the self-imposed ones.
