Tom Izzo Reportedly Hit With NCAA Violation For High School Alma Mater At Michigan State Hosting

How about this for NCAA rules violation?

Tom Izzo was reported to be hosting his high school alma mater, Iron Mountain, at the Breslin Center last season the day before the Mountaineers played there in the state semifinals. As it was Iron Mountain's first time making it to the stage of the tournament, Izzo gave the team a tour of the arena and Michigan State's easy-going room.

And then Michigan State self-reported the violation because they are at the facility to play a game, according to MLive.

The violation report, by MLive, cleared Izzo of any willful wrongdoing and noted Michigan State was not recruiting any Iron Mountain players. Michigan State did not self-impose any penalties.

Iron Mountain alum Steve Mariucci. Izzo almost committed a violation. Thankfully for Michigan State, the school's compliance director brought the rule to Izzo's attention before he paid, and the violation was avoided.

"I think paying for your hometown meal would be big on the Richter scale," Izzo joked to reporters the following day.

According to MLive, Michigan State, Izzo is engaged in impermissible contact with a couple of recruits after a high school game in January. As a result, the Spartans forfeited four recruiting days and cut back their contact with the two recruits during the rest of the school year.

Michigan State's football program, meanwhile, did not report any violations for the 2018-19 school year.
