Binghamton halts off-campus basketball recruiting

October 13, 2009

Binghamton University officials say off-campus recruiting for the men's basketball teams has been suspended. Interim Athletic Director James Norris says coach Kevin Broadus won't be allowed to go on any recruiting trips until next month. The decision comes after Friday's announcement that Broadus admitted having contact with prospective recruits that violated NCAA regulations. Norris said Sunday that all future recruiting trips by the basketball program must be approved by the athletic department. Broadus' admission was another blow to the college's athletic program, which is under review following last month's dismissal of six basketball players, including star player Emanuel "Tiki" Mayben. Mayben was arrested on drug charges last month. He has pleaded not guilty.
