Auburn has self-reported 21 NCAA secondary violations over the last 12 months within the athletic department, according to al.com.
The most interesting violation involved Rashaan Evans, the 5-star linebacker from the city of Auburn who snubbed the Tigers on last year’s signing day to sign with rival Alabama.
This bizarre violation had to do with Auburn’s media relations staff building website pages with the bios of every prospect that was issued a letter of intent by the Tigers last February. Auburn claimed that “media personnel were able to hack into the site and ‘find’ the code to pull up the bio,” a claim which al.com disputes.
You can go here to read the heavily-redacted documents on the 21 violations, which included two coaches visiting the same high school during the fall evaluation period. The second coach was unaware the first one had visited the high school.
There was also impermissible contact of a sophomore prospect via Facebook.
Earlier this week, Auburn was in the national news after QB Nick Marshall was pulled from SEC Media Days after being charged for marijuana possession.
