In a revelation that has sent shockwaves through the college football landscape, Josh Gattis, former offensive coordinator at Michigan, has brought to light potential NCAA violations within the storied football program. Through a series of social media posts, Gattis has hinted at irregularities surrounding recruitment practices, specifically the handling of wide receiver Xavier Worthy‘s commitment and subsequent transfer to Texas. These allegations, implicating both recruitment strategies and admissions procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic, suggest a potential breach of NCAA rules and COVID-19 protocols, raising serious questions about the integrity of Michigan’s football operations.

What did Josh Gattis Say?

“It’s time this Bs ends. The slander has crossed the line for too long,” Gattis posted on X in response to the rumors that have been floating around. “Don’t make excuses for admission…. Or how about look into being on campus during covid. Want to keep on?”

“Sounds like you need others to speak for you,” Gattis tweeted. “I’ve taken the high road too long while you & others slander my integrity & family.

“Ask why Admissions said they wouldn’t require a ACT but denied mid year because of a ACT 4 days before enroll. Do you want the violations too? Emails?”

“[N]o bag just receipts!” Gattis tweeted. “The rivals reporters know the truth…. Go dig them up for the ncaa. Have fun but leave my name, family out of your mouth.”

The allegations brought forth by Josh Gattis place Michigan’s football program under a microscope, challenging the operational integrity of one of college football’s most prestigious institutions. If these claims are substantiated, the repercussions could be significant, affecting not only the program’s reputation but also its future in NCAA competitions. The implications extend beyond mere penalties; they touch on the broader issue of ethics in college sports, spotlighting the pressures and temptations to bend rules for competitive advantage.
