Ohio State Self-Reports Funny NCAA violation
Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports
According to Ohio State's student newspaper The Lantern, the school had to self-report an NCAA violation after Buckeyes’ wide receivers coach Zach Smith illegally sent a text message to a recruit. Well, his four-year-old son actually did...

Per report...
quote:

OSU wide receivers coach Zach Smith’s son picked up his father’s cell phone when a recruit called on May 27, and accidentally sent an automatic text message in return.

The university sent a letter of education to the football coaches after the incident in regards to NCAA texting rules and phone security. The NCAA did not review the case as part of its interpretations philosophy, which allows for flexibility when reviewing rule violations.
Maybe his son is a Michigan fan.

"The NCAA did not review the case as part of its interpretations philosophy, which allows for flexibility when reviewing rule violations."

Where was that with how they handled LSU's "recruiting violations"?
