NCAA Penalizes U. of South Carolina for Recruiting Violations

The NCAA has placed the University of South Carolina on probation for three years after it provided approximately $51,000 in improper extra benefits and preferential treatment to 21 athletes, and failed to catch impermissible recruiting activity by boosters, according to the NCAA’s Division I Committee on Infractions. Two boosters were dissociated from the program after handing out more than $8,000 from their foundation for recruiting inducements and extra benefits to football prospects. South Carolina faces the loss of football scholarships and an $18,500 self-imposed fine.
