Big 12 Recruiter of the Year and Baylor assistant coach Kendal Briles is under investigation by the NCAA for possible recruiting violations regarding four-star quarterback prospect J.W. Ketchum of Missouri City.

Sports Illustrated reported that Briles allegedly contacted Ketchum during the non-contact part of the recruiting period last fall. Ketchum is part of the Bears’ 2015 recruiting class.

NCAA investigators have been in touch with officials at Ketchum’s school, Marshall High in Missouri City about the alleged visit. Investigators are expected to talk with the rising junior dual-threat quarterback in the next several weeks, reported.

Under NCAA rules, coaches cannot have any in-person contact with junior prospects or their parents off-campus.

Baylor head coach Art Briles told the Waco Tribune-Herald there is no substance to any alleged recruiting violations involving his son.

“To our knowledge, no investigation is warranted,” Art Briles said in a text message to the Tribune-Herald.

Kendal Briles, 31, is in his sixth season as a Baylor assistant and serves as the Bears’ pass game coordinator, receivers coach and offensive recruiting coordinator. He has also carved out a growing reputation as one of the nation’s top recruiters. He was selected as the 2014 Big 12 Recruiter of the Year by, and 247Sports.

If Kendal Briles is found to have impermissible contact with Ketchum, he could face a wide range of penalties that could include up to a one-game suspension. And Art Briles could also be suspended for a game under NCAA rules that hold head coaches accountable for some recruiting transgressions of their assistants.

The NCAA does not comment on current, pending or potential investigations.
