After almost two years of investigation, which revealed the reinforcing payments to the football player’s father, LSU imposes sanctions on self-affirmation
In two years, the school has awarded eight football scholarships, cuts in recruits’ visits, grades and communications after an almost two-year investigation that revealed higher payments to the player’s father. This was reported by sources in Sports Illustrated.
The school has been closed for two years by former LSU recipient ներկայ and current NFL star Odell Beckham Jr., who distributed $ 2,000 worth of $ 100 bills during a wild scene that unfolded after the LCU victory over Clemson in a national championship game.
Contacted this week about the news, LSU officials sent to SI a statement on Wednesday.
“LSU has worked proactively and in cooperation with the NCAA to identify and self-report any violations that occurred within our football program,” Robert Munson, LSU Senior Associate Athletic Director, said in the statement. “We believe these self-imposed penalties are appropriate and we will continue to coordinate and cooperate with the NCAA on this matter.”
LSU officials notified the NCAA of its self-imposed sanctions earlier this month, sources said. The program will give up four scholarships in each of the next two years for a total of eight. Teams are normally allowed to have a maximum of 85 players on scholarship per year. The penalties will not impact the team’s ability to sign the maximum of 25 newcomers a year. Recruiting reductions include the elimination of 12.5% of official and unofficial visits, a 21-day reduction of the normal 168 days of allowable off-campus contacts and a six-week ban in communication with prospects.
