The reigning college football champions have been hit with NCAA violations. The Clemson Tigers football team have been hit with eight secondary violations, according to the Associated Press.
The school announced the violations on Wednesday. While these are secondary violations, they are not expected to be major violations.
The football team has resolved the violations, the story said. In addition, the school previously announced 14 self-reported violations from July 1st, 2018 through June 30th.
Those, who allegedly committed the violations, were not named in a summary that the Associated Press obtained from the school. The story also says that the month and day the violations took place were ‘blacked out’ in the document.
The Tigers have become a powerhouse in recent years. They are expected to play in the College Football Playoff in December — and potentially reach yet another College Football Playoff National Championship.
The violations, according to the report, said that a homeowner paid a player more than the ‘going rate’ for work around the house three separate occasions. Two more violations were reportedly from players promoting a product on social media.
The five other violations were allegedly made by football staffers, the report says. It alleges that an athlete received more for transportation expenses than the normal college’s rate.
Another violation included the school announcing a recruit committed to the school, before he officially signed. In addition, another infraction was a staffer mailing out printed questionnaires to 221 prospects before the Sept. 1st deadline of their junior year.
The school also announced they were hit with a violation for using confetti during a photo shoot when a student-athlete came on their official visit.
The Tigers men’s basketball team also was hit with a violation. Volleyball, men’s soccer, men’s and women’s tennis were also hit with a infraction.
