NCAA Sends Georgia Tech Notice of Allegations for High-Level Recruiting Violations

16 Mars, 2019, 02:52 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion
  • Georgia Tech basketball has been accused of a number of major NCAA violations though head coach Josh Pastner is not directly implicated

In a statement that accompanied the notice of allegations, most names were redacted. Bell is a former friend of Pastner's who became entangled in a divorce of friendship from Pastner and was later accused of extortion.

Former NBA and Georgia Tech star Jarrett Jack is accused of giving recruits, including current Chicago Bulls rookie forward Wendell Carter Jr., money to spend at the strip club during their visits to Georgia Tech.

The NCAA also claims LaBarrie misled or lied to the NCAA and Georgia Tech about his knowledge or role in the alleged violations and attempted to convince the member of the team to do the same.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and ESPN.com both reported the school had received the NOA, which details three major NCAA violations.

Head coach Josh Pastner of the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets reacts against the North Carolina Tar Heels during their game at Dean Smith Center on January 20, 2018 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

The contacts totaled $664 in "impermissible recruiting inducements and benefits, including $300 cash for use at the stripe club". The NCAA said it is a "Level 1" violation because it was "intended to provide a substantial or extensive recruiting advantage".

The NCAA further alleged that LaBarrie provided false information to the association, tried to influence the team member to provide false information and tried to hide his attempt to influence the team member. The university added that since the process was still ongoing, it would have no further comment.

Duminy joins stalwarts like Chris Gayle and Imran Tahir in announcing that the World Cup will be their swansong. It is expected that he will be part of the 15-man squad to be named by South Africa for the World Cup.

Pastner has four years left on his contract and is 48-53 in three seasons at Georgia Tech. LaBarrie was placed on leave in November 2017 and later resigned.

Bell, who met Pastner while he was an assistant coach at Arizona, allegedly paid for airline tickets for former Georgia Tech players Josh Okogie and Tadric Jackson to fly to Arizona.

Despite obvious objections from the school, the NCAA determined Bell was a booster, so his alleged actions and violations were made on behalf of Georgia Tech.

Although the names in the NCAA's report were redacted, ESPN reported Friday morning that the NCAA determined former Georgia Tech and National Basketball Association player Jarrett Jack to be a booster and representative of Georgia Tech's athletic interests.

LaBarrie denied all charges, according to the Journal-Constitution.

Pastner's Yellow Jackets just completed a 14-18 season with a first-round loss to Notre Dame in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament. Pastner led Georgia Tech to 21 wins in his 2016-17 debut, including a spot in the NIT finals, before back-to-back losing records the last two seasons.

Georgia Tech suspended women's coach MaChelle Joseph on February 27 for what the school says is a "pending personnel matter".
