Report: Oregon NCAA case likely heading to hearing

Yahoo Sports reported Wednesday that Oregon is likely headed toward a hearing with the NCAA committee on infractions after it couldn’t resolve an investigation of the football coaching staff’s use of a scouting service.

Yahoo cited two unidentified sources in a report Wednesday.

The NCAA investigated Oregon after questions arose over a 2010 payment of $25,000 to Willie Lyles and his Houston-based recruiting service. Lyles had a relationship with a player from Texas who committed to Oregon.

In July 2011, Lyles told Yahoo Sports the money was for influencing recruits to attend Oregon.

Earlier this year, Oregon requested a summary disposition in the case. The school presented a report to the infractions committee outlining violations the school believed occurred and appropriate sanctions. But that request was apparently turned down.

“The integrity of the process and our continued full cooperation with the NCAA prohibits us from publicly discussing the specifics of this matter,” Oregon said in a statement Wednesday night.

The NCAA does not comment on investigations.
