South Carolina receives notice of allegations from NCAA
The NCAA has sent South Carolina a notice of allegations regarding possible violations by its football program and other sports, the school announced on Monday.
In the letter, 12 student-athletes are said to have received an estimated $47,000 in impermissible benefits from a local hotel in the form of reduced rent. It is also alleged that nine players received special arrangements to pay at a later date. The violations were noted as having occurred between Spring 2009 and February 2011.
In addition, two people characterized as representatives of the school allegedly made impermissible contact with recruits and provided impermissible benefits.
The Gamecocks have 90 days to respond to the notice, with an appearance before the NCAA Committee on Infractions to follow.
