NCAA issues one-year probation for LSU football, limits recruiting visits

The NCAA placed LSU’s football program on a one-year probation and gave former offensive line coach James Cregg a three-year penalty after violating recruiting rules during the coronavirus pandemic.

According to a ruling by the Division I Violations Committee, Cregg encountered a prospect during the recruiting period who died of COVID-19, who the panel described as a Level II case.

LSU will also pay a self-imposed fine of $5,000 and is limited to 55 official visits. The program also self-imposed a one-week ban on unofficial visits and a one-week ban on recruiting communications.
