Oregon business as usual
EUGENE, OR (AP) - Now that spring football is all wrapped up, the Oregon Ducks wait to hear what the NCAA will decide about possible recruiting violations.
New coach Mark Helfrich said earlier this week that it's ``business as usual'' as the Ducks head into the summer. His comments come following published reports that Oregon appeared last month before the NCAA infractions committee over possible recruiting violations.
The NCAA has been looking into payments Oregon made to recruiting services, including a $25,000 payment to Willie Lyles and Houston-based Complete Scouting Services in 2011. Lyles had a connection with an Oregon recruit.
Oregon would not comment about whether the meeting had taken place. The NCAA does not comment on ongoing investigations.
