Clemson reports 12 NCAA violations
In midst of a chaotic offseason in college football that has seen high-profile NCAA investigations take place at major programs such as Auburn, Ohio State, Oregon and North Carolina, another ACC school will be added to the mix.
The only question now is if it pertains to its football program.
Clemson's athletic department reported 12 NCAA secondary violations on Friday for transgressions occurring at the school from February through July 15, including an incident where five athletes stayed in a hotel room paid for by a former teammate's agent, according to The Associated Press.
As of now, the names of the athletes as well as the sports involved have been left out of the reports. All violations are considered secondary, however, though it's obviously never good to be in hot water with the NCAA.
Among the infractions listed was a Tigers coach overhearing athletes discussing a spring break trip and discovering that they stayed in a $349 hotel room. Each athlete was asked to repay $76 to charity.
