CBS Sports: NCAA about to notify six schools of Level 1 violations

Just when you start to forget the college hoops scandal, here it comes roaring back. CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodd is reporting that “at least” six Division I men’s basketball programs will be notified of Level I NCAA violations this summer, two of them “high-profile”:

Stan Wilcox, NCAA vice president for regulatory affairs, said two high-profile programs would receive notices of allegations by early July.

The remaining four would be rolled out later in the summer in what was described as a wave of NCAA investigations meant to clean up major-college basketball.

“There’s even another group of cases that we’re still working on,” Wilcox said. “The main thing is that we’re up and ready. We’re moving forward and you’ll see consequences.”

Level I violations are considered the most serious, with punishments ranging from scholarship reductions to postseason bans and show-cause orders for coaches. Also important: a Notice of Allegations is only sent after an investigation is closed. At least 20 schools were mentioned in the FBI’s probe into college hoops, but it has been reported that Kansas, Arizona, and Louisville were under NCAA investigation. LSU seems like a likely candidate as well after Will Wade was caught on a wiretap discussing a “strong-ass offer” for Javonte Smart.

One of the juiciest bits of info from the college hoops trial was the wiretap of Kansas assistant Kurt Townsend discussing how much money it would take to land Zion Williamson; however, Wilcox told Dodd that because the wiretap was not entered into evidence, the NCAA can’t access it. So, for that, Kansas will probably be let off the hook. Again.

    they could have surveillance footage of Kreidwshevvslki handing Zion the money and they would let it go.

      K could admit is under oath and they wouldn’t do anything!

      NCAA would immediately change the rules to allow player payments and would credit K for the whole thing

    Worst case scenario for Louisville would be to find out that they are among those receiving notice of Level 1 Violations AND that CBS was referring to Arizona and Kansas when they said that two of the schools were high profile.

    My blood still boils when I think of how the NCAA let U. of No Classes off.

      UNCHEAT set the standard on how to get away with anything with the NCAA. just make it available to the entire student body and its not a benefit just for the athletes. i am surprised all schools have not followed suit and offered fake classes that all the students get A grades in to get the athlete gpa up.

    I’m sure Zion is the only player that assistant ever checked into offering money.

    I know that UK was mentioned with Bam so I’ll be nervous until everything is over and UK isn’t named. (I’m an old guy that went through the Sutton scandal and penalties and I don’t ever want to go through that again.)

    Has about as much chance to be a real investigation into everyone as the UNCheating scandal where student athletes were ineligible for not taking enough viable hours. As long as james comey and bill muler arent leading it, at least it wont be a waste of money and time… yeah, nevermind. Just another dog and pony show.
