Due to the nature of the violations, Ohio State received minimal punishments. The school self-imposed punishments for the violations. The NCAA furthered the consequences in four situations.

Eleven Warriors provided a brief rundown of the violations. From the website:

  • The football team went over its scholarship limit in the spring of 2017 due to the compliance department telling the football program it could have three players split two scholarships. As a result, the program had a one-scholarship reduction at the “next available opportunity.”
  • The football team agreed to no longer recruit five-star Micah Parsons after he took pictures on the College GameDay set and met with the analysts.
  • The Agonis Club restructured its organization to meet Ohio State’s booster policies.
  • Due to the NCAA violations that stemmed from seven impermissible phone calls, Urban Meyer was barred from making recruiting calls from Dec. 20 to 26. Of course, by then, he had already announced his retirement and was no longer leading Ohio State’s recruiting efforts.

Most of the punishments forced Ohio State’s football staff to wait a few additional weeks before getting a job on the 2020 recruiting class.
