Louisiana-Lafayette accused of major recruiting violations

The Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns are trying to get back into the top of the leaderboard in the Sun Belt right now, but they are sitting at a 2-3 record. The team now has an even bigger problem to deal with as they confirmed Sunday that the NCAA has accused them of several major recruiting violations.

According to SI.com, the Cajuns responded to a notice of allegations from the NCAA in late August. Former assistant coach David Saunders was accused of recruiting-related violations that included an academic eligibility issue.

That issue regards standardized test scores of recruits signed off by current head coach Mark Hudspeth. The report says that the players, Hudspeth, and recruiting coordinator Reed Stringer had no knowledge of the violations.
