Georgia Tech Bracing For Potential NCAA Recruiting Violations Due To Todd Spencer

Georgia Tech awaits word from the NCAA on recruiting violations committed by now former offensive line coach Todd Spencer.

Georgia Tech is currently unsure of the severity of any sanctions they'll face for recruiting violations they self-reported last week, according to a report by the Associated Press.

Tech co-offensive line coach Todd Spencer officially resigned from the team on National Signing Day last Wednesday, the same day the school announced that Spencer had violated NCAA recruiting rules by sending impermissable texts to recruits. Tech's associate athletic director Wayne Hogan told reporters Friday that he's unsure if the violations will be considered secondary or major by the NCAA.

Spencer's trouble is considered to be part of the reason the Yellow Jackets lost out on star offensive line recruit Will Adams, who was a Tech commit before announcing he'd sign with Auburn, and who cited Spencer's shaky standing on the staff as a reason for his move.
