Utah basketball hit with recruiting violations

The NCAA announced this morning that the University of Utah had committed minor recruiting infractions and that head coach Larry Krystkowiak failed to “monitor his staff and promote compliance”. The trouble stems from a stretch of violations that occurred in April 2018.

These violations include an assistant coach misinterpreting the rules that off-campus recruiting activities were okay during a quiet period, and scouting a recruit at a community college. Additionally, all of Utah’s coaching staff recruited a high school athlete during this period.

Utah’s Associate Head Coach also conspired with a local community college head coach to have a recruit take a paid visit to the community college, and visit the University of Utah when he was in the area.
