During fall 2016, the football program gained a recruiting advantage when it arranged for the use of personalized recruiting aids for 36 prospects during their campus visits. Specifically, the program created an electronic presentation that included each prospect’s name, statistics and a high school highlight video. Oregon displayed the presentation in the football equipment area during the prospects’ unofficial and official paid visits.

 

That’s a Level II violation. The NCAA classifies that as a “significant breach of conduct,” but it’s not punishing Oregon, likely in part because the Ducks self-reported their rule-breaking.

 

Under NCAA rules, a school “may produce a computer-generated recruiting presentation for a prospect, but the presentation may not be personalized to include the prospect’s name, picture or likeness.” Thus, Oregon’s presentations were a major no-no.
