Lupoi was limited for secondary violation

By Kevin Gemmell

Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times is reporting that Washington's Tosh Lupoi was "limited" in his recruiting during the spring evaluation period because of a self-reported, secondary violation.

Writes Condotta:
The school said the violation occurred when Lupoi "publicized the visit of a prospective student-athlete who ultimately did not commit to UW by confirming information about the recruit to members of the Dawg Pack student section at a men's basketball game.''

No other details about the violation were disclosed.

Lupoi, one of the top recruiters in the nation was named defensive line coach and defensive run- game coordinator in January, leaving Cal and a lot of bitter Bears fans in his wake.

A Washington spokesman said secondary violations are very common, noting that in general most schools self report anywhere between 10-15 secondary violations each year.

It's unlikely any action, other than Lupoi being limited during the April 15-May 31 evaluation period, will come from this.
