The Alabama Crimson Tide have been dominating the recruiting scene under the leadership of head coach Nick Saban. While there have never been any significant recruiting violations discovered that could bring down the entire program, there are a few mishaps here and there that have occurred. In the past year, Alabama reported a pair of minor recruiting violations from within the football program.
According to a report from Al.com, Alabama reported a total of 16 violations to the NCAA in the past fiscal year. Two of those were within the football program. One unnamed assistant coach called a recruit twice outside of the allowed contact period. Another unnamed assistant was found to have contacted a recruit outside of a contact period as well, and that staffer was prohibited from recruiting off campus for 30 days.
