Scott Duncan's Parting Gifts: Secondary Violation?

According to the SUC Times, former basketball assistant Scott Duncan, who took a job at Wyoming this offseason, may have committed a secondary violation on his way out by mentioning an unsigned recruit by name:

According to a Sports Illustrated article published this week, Duncan discussed with reporter Bruce Schoenfeld the prospect of landing Jordan Tebbutt, a 6-foot-5 junior swingman from Tualatin, Ore.

"I can't do a lot with Jordan Tebbutt at this tournament — just make sure he sees me at the game, wave to his dad and mom, and that's it," Duncan told the reporter. "Anybody in a UCLA shirt could do it."

Of course, leave it to the SUC Times to comb through these kinds of things while they plead ignorance of years of rampant cheating across town, but the fact remains that this does appear to be a pretty good case for a secondary violation. It's true that there aren't many of us who are too broken up about Duncan moving on, in fact it has been a suggestion many of us have had for a while now as recruiting and player evaluation have been less than stellar recently. However, this kind of thing is just sloppy. Yeah, the rule is stupid, but this is one of the rules everyone knows about in part because it is so stupid, so to be this sloppy and neglectful and impact our program negatively while the perpetrator himself flees to another program puts a rather inglorious cap on his mediocre tenure here.
