IU Self Reports Recruiting Violation

Indiana University issued a statement Tuesday that Tom Crean committed a NCAA violation while recruiting an un-named athlete in Indianapolis last week.

That un-named athlete was, 6-4 shooting guard Gary Harris (Hamilton Southeastern, IN). In the report, the school acknowledges that coach Crean traveled to see Harris after the contact period came to it's conclusion on October 6th.

An assistant realized the calender error and contacted the Indiana compliance office, which contacted the NCAA.

"Coach [Tom] Crean immediately reported an inadvertent recruiting contact violation to our complainace office," the school said in a statement. "We are following our normal procedures."

The Hoosier have docked Crean and his staff two recruiting days for the violation.

Harris, who's visiting Indiana this weekend, is also considering Kentucky, Michigan State and Purdue.
