A new lawsuit has been filed against Michigan State University that details some serious NCAA violations if proven to be true.
Former MSU recruiting director Curtis Blackwell has filed a new lawsuit in court this week alleging that the Spartans, under former head coach Mark Dantonio, secretly recorded practices of an undisclosed opposing team.
Additionally, according to ESPN, Blackwell alleges that Dantonio “required him to do things that violated NCAA rules, including visiting recruits’ homes, soliciting improper benefits for family members of recruits and tampering by contacting players enrolled at other NCAA schools to recruit them“.
Dantonio’s attorney Thomas Kienbaum called Blackwell’s allegations of NCAA violations part of a “smear campaign” and “not only false, but totally gratuitous.”
Blackwell was an employee of MSU from 2013 to 2017.
