Timing of Duke scholarship offer questioned

Duke released a statement Friday after reports that basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski may have violated an NCAA recruiting rule by offering a scholarship to a recruit during a summer club tournament.

“In all rules matters brought to our attention, the Duke compliance department exercises due diligence in determining the relevant facts of a given situation,” Duke associate director of athletics for media relations and public affairs Jon Jackson said in the statement. “Proper adherence to NCAA bylaws has always been, and will continue to be, a cornerstone of Duke Athletics.” reported that Krzyzewski offered a scholarship to Class of 2012 standout Alex Poythress, a 6-foot-7 forward from Clarksville, Tenn., on Tuesday. But the scholarship offer reportedly came before Poythress’ Georgia Stars team completed play in the Super Showcase tournament in Orlando, Fla.

NCAA Rule prohibits coaches from contacting athletes until they are finished playing in a tournament.

Jackson declined further comment; NCAA rules that prevent staff members from talking about recruits that have not signed scholarship agreements.

Poor writing, as last sentence makes no sense. It is really frustrating to see so many editing/proofreading/grammatical mistakes in the Observer!

LOL.......Rules are Rules. Just because it's Duke breaking a rule, doesn't mean it shouldn't be reported. I'm trip'n over the fact that we have the "Grammar Police" in here, Grading peoples Who does that

Michael Procton said...

Not a violation at all. He spoke to the kid while he was between events, not DURING an event, which is the alleged violation.

AJ Johnson said...

Michael, the rules state that coaches can have no contact with a recruit until AFTER the AAU tournament has ended. Duke is saying that Coach K "misunderstood" the rule to mean that because the player's team had lost, the tournanment was effectively over for that team. You take it a step further and make it sound like as long as a coach doesn't talk to a recruit in the middle of a game, everything is kosher!

Procton - If the rules were as clear cut as you indicate, why would Duke ask the NCAA for guidance in interpreting the rule? The answer is, of course, that they wouldn't.

I think some people have a puritanical view about the necessity of atheism. They think that if they purge themselves of all religiosity they will automatically become ethical — as though being ethical were a question of reduction, Asbestos Removal

I've always been interested in college athletics. I like to learn all I can about the process of college athletic recruiting. I have to write a paper about it. Do you have any resources I could use?
