(WVUE) - An investigation into LSU coach Will Wade's recruiting practices by the NCAA came to light Sunday in a report from Yahoo Sports' Peter Thamel.
The report says the NCAA's scrutiny of Wade began not long after his hire at LSU in March, but the inquiry has stalled because of a lack of on-the-record specifics about Wade's recruiting. The NCAA's information gathering has covered part of his time as head coach at VCU. Wade's early recruiting activity at LSU prompted the NCAA enforcement interest.
Today LSU responded to the reported investigation with a statement
"LSU has confirmed with NCAA officials that there is no active investigation into the men's basketball program. LSU Athletics stands for full compliance and partnership with the NCAA and the SEC."
