Alabama's self-reported NCAA Level 3 violations include football, softball, gymnastics
Alabama athletics self-reported its Level 3 minor violations on Thursday, which include five total over the past year.
A Level 3 violation is "isolated or limited in nature, provides no more than a minimal recruiting, competitive or other advantage, and provides no more than a minimal impermissible benefit," according to the NCAA.
The sports that committed Level 3 violations include: softball, soccer (twice), gymnastics and football.
The violations are:
- Softball: A coach endorsed a person on Twitter who instructs prospect-level individuals, and that person used that endorsement on a company website.
- Soccer: A coach replied to emails from prospective athletes before the date they're allowed to be in contact with recruits on separate occasions.
- Gymnastics: The program posted a graphic on social media that endorsed an event involving prospects.
- Football: A student host gave an official visitor transportation and entertainment outside the 30-mile radius from campus.
