Ivy League Concludes No Wrongdoing by Harvard Recruiters

The Ivy League has decided to not take any action against Harvard after concluding its investigation into potential improper recruiting activity by the Harvard men’s basketball program.
The allegations of recruiting violations by head coach Tommy Amaker and assistant coach Kenneth Blakeney were raised in a March 2008 New York Times article. It alleged that members of Amaker’s staff had made illegal contact with several recruits during the spring and summer of 2007. However, after an examination of records and interviews with relevant coaches and potential student-athletes, the Ivy League concluded that Harvard was not in violation of either NCAA or Ivy League rule.
