NCAA About To Close Previous Investigation Into LSU

The NCAA will hold a teleconference today at 3pm ET to discuss its committee on infractions’ decision regarding LSU.

No, not regarding LSU and Willie Lyles.  Regarding LSU and Akiem Hicks.

For those who don’t remember, the juco D-line transfer Hicks never played a game for the Tigers and left the school after the fall of 2009.  The assistant coach who recruited him — DJ McCarthy — was forced out about the same time.  LSU self-imposed sanctions on itself for violations tied to Hicks’ recruitment, transportation and living arrangements.  Among the sanctions – the school docked itself two scholarships for the 2011-12 recruiting season.

In December of last year the NCAA sent a “notice of violations” to the Tiger athletic department and asked the school to follow up on questions regarding the seven primary allegations.

The school sent in a 126-page response in March.

Today, LSU will learn if the NCAA has accepted its self-imposed sanctions or if it will require more self-flagellation on the part of the Tiger football program.

This case is in no way tied to the Lyles issue… which had a new set of NCAA investigators on the Baton Rouge campus earlier this month.
