This is a random question for you NCAA recruiting experts out there:
I got to thinking about the situation where a recruit tries to commit to a school that has learned something negative in their research on the kid and thus refuses to accept the committment.
QUERY: If a school uncovers something really significant that does not appear on a criminal record (I can't think of a good example), does that school have an obligation to inform other schools about this fact? For example, if Notre Dame is recruiting a kid and finds out that he did something that is maybe not criminal but extremely immoral or whatever, do they have some sort of obligation to inform Michigan or some other school they know is recruiting him?
The answer is likely found in the NCAA Bylaws as it is really a legal "duty to report" question. I'm just curious if anyone knows off the top of their heads. Thanks in advance.
