Baylor Being Investigated by the NCAA

Posted by CoHoops DeAnte Mitchell
The month of October hasn't been polite to the Baylor Bears. During October, the Bears witnessed news that their senior guard LaceDarius Dunn was suspended indefinitely pending an aggravated assault charge.

Most media outlets don't expect to see Dunn back on the court in a Baylor uniform.

Now, yesterday according to reports by, Baylor is being investigated by the NCAA for their involvement with Hanner Perea, La Lumiere School (IN) star.

According to reports, Assistant Coach Mark Morefield sent "dozens" of text messages to Perea's AAU and High School coaching during July, while they were coaching events; that is against NCAA rules.

Baylor Head Coach Scott Drew, and Morefield both declined to comment on the situation. However, Coach Morefield was reportedly already suspended and not allowed to recruit on the road in July.

The NCAA is investigating this situation and will visit Waco later this month.
