A word on recruiting violations and BC websites
Eagle Action posted an article (since removed) on the two Cincinnati recruits and their upcoming visit. In the article their former St. Xavier teammate Luke Kuechly said this: "My main thing that I'm going to be very honest with them about things." Silly and innocent as it seems, that is an NCAA recruiting violation. The official rule states that schools, players and/or team official cannot speak to any media about specific recruits until after signing day. What happened with Eagle Action is very, very minor and shouldn't be a big concern. BC probably self reported the violation so that no one else would blow the whistle on them and make it look worse.
Although I personally haven't done any recruiting reporting for Scout.com since my affiliation with Eagle Insider, Scout has made clear any potential hazards and asked me to hammer home those tricky NCAA gray areas to my contributors (first the BC Draft crew and then the other Scout guys). My interaction with BC folks on recruiting was equally stringent. They wouldn't even broach specifics. That's why this mistake from Eagle Action is so surprising. I've had my issues with EA in the past, but I will give them credit for having the most in-depth BC recruiting coverage for a decade now. They should have known better.
When the smoke clears, I don't think anything will come of this. If we don't close on Duggan and Daniels it will most likely be about the program and not the websites.
