MIAMI (AP) - The University of Miami is being investigated for
possible NCAA violations.
UM issued a statement Friday, saying the investigation surrounds
"impermissible text messages and telephone calls to prospective
student-athletes." The university conducted an audit and reported
its findings to the NCAA.
A joint investigation has been launched.
The university says it will take the appropriate steps to ensure
full compliance with NCAA rules and regulations. The statement
doesn't list which sports were involved or how many text-related
violations were discovered. The school declined further comment.
The NCAA website says "schools cannot text prospective
student-athletes at any time." Texting was eliminated because of
the potential cost to prospective student-athletes, the site said.
