Iowa Violations Center Around Recruits Meeting Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore
I don’t know exactly what an Ashton Kutcher is, but somehow it keeps popping up in sports conversations. First I hear that this character has a fantasy football show, then the guy shows up as a high school assistant coach, and now he’s getting his Iowa Hawkeyes into trouble via recruiting violations.
The Des Moines Register found out that Iowa self reported violations to the NCAA involving recruits meeting people who represent the athletic department. Two basketball recruits met Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore while another basketball recruit met former players Reggie Evans and Dean Oliver.
The violations became public when the two recruits said they met Kutcher and Moore during a September football game between Iowa and Iowa State in Iowa City. And as most cases seem to go these days, the proof was documented on twitter. Check out this picture Sports by Brooks tipped us off to that unveils the evidence:
Going to be pretty hard for the Hawkeyes to deny allegations at this point. They’ve self-reported the problems to the NCAA but I’m guessing they won’t be penalized too badly. Would meeting Ashton Kutcher really sway a recruit towards the school? Exactly.
