Violation keeps Stricklin from contacting recruits for two weeks

A text message that Georgia baseball coach Scott Stricklin returned accidentally to a recruit will keep him from telephone contact with any recruits for two weeks.

Georgia self reported the NCAA violation on electronic transmissions in a May 9 letter to the Southeastern Conference, according to a copy of the letter obtained in an open records request. The phone restriction by Georgia was also detailed in the letter.

In the letter, athletic director Greg McGarity wrote that on May 4 Stricklin “was quickly responding to several messages he had received regarding a recent victory and accidentally responded to the prospect via text message.” Stricklin informed the compliance office the next morning after realizing what happened.

Georgia won’t call, send recruiting materials or permissible electronic transmissions to the recruit involved from May 5 to June 4.
