According to The Telegraph, the violation occurred sometime after January 1 and was the result of a football coach attempting to follow-up with a high school coach regarding a potential recruit’s academic standing. The call in question was made after a non-coaching staff member had previously missed a number of calls from the high school coach. The SEC was also made aware of the violation and responded by accepting the self-imposed penalties from Georgia and banned the staff member from making any contact to the recruit for a span of 30 days.
It is not believed the potential violation led to any recruiting advantage, and it is unknown what player may have been the subject of the phone call exchange.
