Statement from UConn
The University is working collaboratively with the NCAA to conduct a thorough review of the issues raised in the recent news accounts regarding alleged recruiting violations in the men's basketball program. On Wednesday morning March 25th, soon after the article was posted, the University and NCAA enforcement staff initiated conversations on this matter. A comprehensive examination of the facts and circumstances involved has begun. The review is being conducted by the NCAA and the University in a manner consistent with NCAA enforcement procedures.
According to Richard Evrard, who has been retained by UConn as legal counsel, the school "takes its obligation seriously and will proceed accordingly and work collabroatively with the NCAA."
Evrard couldn't venture a guess on how long the NCAA investigation might take.
