NCAA announces recruiting violations and penalties for LSU football

Once again, USL football finds itself under the microscope of the NCAA from the upside-down era of Ed Orgeron. On Thursday, the NCAA released the list of penalties under the Tigers program, stemming from reported recruiting violations committed by former Tigers assistant coach James Cregg.

LSU faces one year probation, a $5,000 fine, an official visitation limit, and a one-week self-imposed ban on unofficial visits to the football program before the start of the 2022-23 college year. .

The list also includes a one-week ban on recruiting communications into the football program before the start of the next academic year, a seven-day reduction in evaluation in the football program, and a three-year show cause order for Cregg, who is not named in the release. All penalties, except for the one-year probation and Cregg’s vindication, were self-imposed by the program.
