Clemson Commits Secondary NCAA Violation

Ryan BlanchfieldAnalyst IOctober 19, 2016

Buchholz is playing soccer and football for the Tigers, and soccer coach Trevor Adair and football coach Tommy Bowden have been giving him different days off.

But NCAA rules require an athlete to have one full day off from all sports, athletic spokesman Tim Bourret said.

The school has reported the situation as a secondary violation, but it will not affect Buchholz's eligibility to play either sport, Bourret said.

Adair and Bowden will start working together to make sure Buchholz gets a day off from both sports every week, Bourret said.
