Urban Meyer makes a minor recruitment violation
CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -
Another Buckeyes NCAA Violation? It is so. The Buckeyes have violated an NCAA recruiting rule, but this one of less severity than the most recent troubles from within the Buckeyes football program.
Head coach Urban Meyer went to lunch with family, friends, and Tim Tebow joined only to be the center of a minor recruitment violation, as Meyer answered a call from recruit Clifton Garrett he then handed the phone to Tim Tebow, and the 8 second conversation between Meyer and Garrett was enough to warrant a recruiting violation.
Meyer stated that he was not trying to lure the recruit to come to Ohio State. The recruit tweeted:
"I just called Coach Meyer just ta see whats up and next thing you know I was talking on the phone to TIM TEBOW!!! #InShockRightNow #Insane!"
