Brian Hartline may have committed NCAA violation with tweet about Ohio State

Brian Hartline

Former Ohio State wide receiver Brian Hartline spent some time practicing with the Buckeyes this week, and he may have committed an NCAA violation by saying too much about it on social media.

After the practice session, Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins Jr. paid Hartline a compliment on Twitter.

Hartline responded with a seemingly harmless remark about how he would be back at practice on Tuesday, but he later deleted it. College Football Talk captured a screenshot:

Why did Hartline feel the need to delete the tweet? While NCAA rules allow former players to practice with their alma maters “on an occasional basis,” bylaw states that the school must “not publicize the participation of the former student at any time before the practice session.” Hartline’s tweet may have been construed as him promoting the fact that an NFL free agent receiver was going to be taking part in practice.

Players practicing with their alma maters has created some controversy this year, and Nick Saban has been at the center of much of it. We all know how complicated NCAA rules can be.
